Happy March everyone!  This month we are teaming up with ‘Just Nick Studio’ for a week of inspiration featuring the digital cut files combined with the March kit “Happy Place.”  I am super excited to be a participate in this week’s collaboration!  We are having a Giveaway, so make sure to check back on the Blog during the week!  You can check out the digital files I used and others clicking below.

The majority of my photos are Instagram pics, so I gravitate towards square format cut files and graphics.  I chose these two, frame in frame cut files and one for a title.  I die cut the frames out of patterned papers in navy and green.  I die cut my title out of watercolor paper, knowing I wanted to paint something matching the sunrise.

With the idea of painting the title and the divisions of the Instagram photo I created in a Pic App, I painted loose stripes of watercolors across the white cardstock.  I layered the die cut pieces over the paint stripes and added stickers, washi and embellishments from the kit, color blocking down the page.

I can’t seem to get enough of this technique lately.  I love the variety in hue and the layering that shows the different and contrasting tones of color.  I tried to step down the colors and shapes from top left to bottom right, ending with the title, appropriate for a sunrise!
