Unbeleafable! New Issue at Paper Issues!

 Hello!  Lisa and the girls have been working to bring you another issue filled with inspiration on the Paper Issues Blog!  Lots of new layouts to see.

Here is mine where I "watercolored" with Dylusions mists and sewed on Silhouette-cut leaves.  As you probably know, Dylusions are bright and vibrant and I just love them!  I like to spray them out onto a plate and use them with my water brush, or with pieces of plastic to do the packaging technique.

I sprayed some mist onto a plate - for this layout, I used orange, red and green on the leaves.  I wet the leaves first with water from the water brush, then dabbed on some mist here and there with one color.  I rinsed the plate and went onto the next color, repeating until I was done using all three colors.

If the line where the colors join looks too harsh, blend it in with a touch of water from the water brush along the line where the colors meet.  

That's it!  Easy.  I sewed them after I attached them all to the layout because I wasn't thinking :)  It would have been easier to sew on them before attaching them to the layout, I think, but no big deal either way.

I used the new Pebbles Warm & Cozy in the store.  It has lots of pretty embellishments and papers. Lots of new things in the store here:  New Stuff.   Use Code 'Melissa' for 20% off your total purchase.

Thanks for stopping by!
