Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring  Brea Reese watercolor inks and FREE Dingbats!Brea Reese Watercolor ink | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine These watercolor inks are intense little bottles of color, and so much fun to use to create page backgrounds and color embellishments.  I had a pile of photographs from a trip to Portugal this past April and grabbed a couple of them to scrapbook.   Yes, I am old school and print out most of the pictures that I take, so I always have lots of 4×6 photographs on my desk.connie nichol, brea reese watercolors, momenta

I created the middle part of the page by simply wetting a square of watercolor paper with water, and then brushing with a few drops of yellow and blue Brea Reese watercolor inks.   The colors spread across the wet watercolor paper to give a beautiful effect.
For the fruit embellishments, I printed out fruit dingbats from a free font called KR Fruitsy onto watercolor paper and coloured them  with a few drops of Brea Reese watercolor ink and a water brush.  Super easy and very frugal.  The Brea Reese glitter inks are very sparkly, so I’d highly recommend them for extra pizzazz.
That’s pretty much it  – just mount your watercolored square in the middle of a piece of Momenta cardstock, tuck a little cheesecloth under the edges and machine stitch.   Embellish with the colored fruit dingbats and metal bee stickers and add journalling.  I also used a border punch to just punch a small bit out of the edges.

Supplies Used:  Art-C/Momenta cardstock, metal stickers, Brea Reese watercolor inks, Canson watercolor paper, Brother sewing machine, American Crafts thickers, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesives, cheesecloth, EK Success border punch.
