This week's layout uses a variety of papers from American Crafts to My Mind's Eye. We're also using a set of graduation stickers.
But you're not graduating? No problem! These have phrases that fit many things. For example, kids finally learned how to ride bikes without training wheels. I'm going to use this layout to document this long-awaited moment.
And, for the free elements we have watercolor paper for you to alter. Grab your spray mists, ink pad, paint or pen and let's go.
If you're using a dye ink pad, like Tim Holtz's Distress Inks (or his markers), you can swipe color onto the paper then spritz with water. The inks are reactive with water and do fun things when wet.
If you have paint, add lots of water before applying it for more of a translucent, watercolor effect. And have fun!
