For even more 10th Anniversary fun, we've rounded up ten of our favorite past blog challenges. We've asked our current Creative Team to share their take on these fun challenges, and we hope you'll play along too!
In this weekly challenge from 2013, Creative Team members Gayatri Murali and Gillian Nelson challenged you to incorporate watercolor in your papercrafts. Watercolors can be the perfect way to add a bold pop of color to any project!
Here's Creative Team member Theresa Doan's take on this past challenge:
I had so much fun getting a little messy with watercolors for this challenge! I wanted to create a layout for a recent trip to the beaches in San Diego.
I used a simple and fun technique with watercolors and a straw to create splatter marks. You first place a drop of watercolor on your paper. Take a straw, and do a quick strong blow on the watercolor. For my layout, I did this in a circle, about the size of my photos. I used shades of blue and teal that reminded me of the beach.
For my title, I brush lettered "San Diego" and stamped "memories."
I finished off the layout by stamping some summer words on the photos.
Get out those watercolors and get a little messy! I can't wait to see what everyone creates for this challenge!
Let's see how you use watercolors for a chance to win a $10 GC to the Studio Calico shop! When you complete this challenge, upload it to the member gallery and leave a link to your project in the comments below. See all of our 10th Anniversary challenges here.
