Working with Watercolors....
I diecut the pebble shaped background piece with my Silhouette Cameo and white cardstock and then layered the cut piece on top of another piece of white cardstock. I was just going to fill a few of the open spots with different embellies to give it a "collected beach shells" look, but then I thought it might look cool if all the spots were filled to look like sea glass. I worked up my nerve and just started filling in the hole with different shades of aqua and yellow. I even backed my vellum sun (cut on my Silhouette) with watercolor. I then did the unthinkable (at least to me) and smudged some on my patterned paper (under the photo spot). I definitely got the feel that I wanted on this layout with my photo I took on the beach while on vacation a little over a week ago!!
Give watercolors a try - it's easier than you think!! Have a great day!! :)
