Here is a video showing how to make the Mini Journal with Watercolor and stamped cover.
Having scraps of paper on my desk prompted this mini journal. I was looking at the watercolor paper scrap and thought it would make a beautiful cover with the Surface inks.
I smashed three colors of Brutus Monroe Surface ink on a scrap of acetate. Then sprayed with Alcohol to get the inks to spread and blur the lines. Dip the paper into the ink and boom you have a beautiful watercolor background.
Before stamping it would be a good idea to dry the paper. I failed to do so in the video and the stamping came out very light. I like how it looked, but if you want a vivid image dry the paper first then stamp.
The cover was then finished off with a scrap of book paper and a domino image from Calico Collage and a little bit of glitter washi tape.
It feels good to use the supplies left over from another project.
My hope is that you were inspired to create something with those scraps on your desk.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
