Project of the Week

Donna here for this weeks POTW for The House That Stamps Built,
we are going to make some quick  fun backgrounds!  Lets get started: 
Gather supplies: Large acrylic block, spray bottle of water, water color markers,
water color crayons, Brushos, watercolor cardstock. Stamps of choice, I used

Sprinkle Brusho colors of choice on acrylic block, spritz with water.
Press on watercolor paper.
Hold firmly for several seconds for color to soak in. This
is important for the color to soak in.  Set aside to dry.

Take Zig markers of your choice and scribble on a
clean acrylic block.  Mist with water.

Press on watercolor paper and remember, hold firmly
for several seconds.

Scribble with Aquacolor crayons on clean acrylic
block, then mist with water.

 Press on watercolor paper and  hold firmly
for several seconds.
Brusho background.

Zig markers.
 Aqua crayons.
 Stamp and embellish as desired:

I hope you enjoyed this lengthy but simple POTW and will
 give it a try! Thanks for stopping by.
