I absolutely love the look of watercolor on digital scrapbooking pages. Watercolor lends a soft look to your designs, as well as a slight bit of texture. The muted background that watercolor provides allows your photos and embellishments to truly be the focal photo of your layout… and that’s what we want, right?
So how do you get the look of watercolor?
You can use Watercolor Brushes and create your own pages, or you can use a designer’s watercolor backgrounds or overlays, which makes things nice and easy for you! They’ve already handled the messy part!
I have released my first set of Watercolor Overlays and am offering them with a 30% Introductory Savings through April 18th. You can find them at:
Here is a usage tip: Place a watercolor overlay on the layer above your background and experiment with Blend Modes and Opacity levels. Sometimes placing an overlay on a layer under your background, and changing the Blend Mode of your Background gives a better result. See which method works best for you. It often depends upon the background you are working with.
These Watercolor Overlays work well with any paper, but if you want a variety of color in your watercolor papers, they work exceptionally well with my Colorizers. (Colorizers 1, Colorizers 2, or the value-priced Colorizers Bundle).
( The Colorizers Bundle shows the Colorizers being used with my Artsy Textures. )
Here is a Sample for you to experiment with. Just click on the image below to download.
I hope you enjoy using this product!
