I love the electric effect the watercolor created on this page. Super vibrant and fun. So was this trip to Universal Studios with my sister, daughter and nieces!

Here’s how this layout was created:

Gather Altenew Watercolor Markers and Altenew Large Watercolor Palette to get started.

Watercolor Markers

Before you can use the markers you have to remove the green ring that prevents the ink from reaching the brush before the are ready to be used.

Squeeze the barrel to release the ink onto the palette.

Use as many colors as you want.

Spritz the palette with water so that the ink can move around when you apply it to paper.

Turn the palette onto the paper and watch the ink move across the paper. Its amazing. I love this palette for this very reason. You can see how the ink moves and make adjustment if you want.

Once you lift the palette, you will see some ink left on the palette that you can place somewhere else on the paper.

Once the watercolor look is to your desire, let it dry. Since I wanted it to dry quickly, I used my heat tool to dry it.

Now it time to add the photo and embellishments. Start with the title. I used the Reflection Scrapbook Puffy Stickers for this title.


Watercolor Markers

Type up the journaling and adhere it next to the photo. Use the Date Stamp to add the date multiple times. Splatter some black ink drops for contrast on the page.

Add some thread and Reflection Scrapbook Collection Stickers under the photo.

Pretty cool right?!

  3. Beautiful, fun layout, looks like you really enjoyed the time away from the photo & write up. Love the vibrancy you have got with the watercolour markers, hot colours for hot sun.

  4. I had no idea you could watercolor your scrapbook pages. I love creating scrapbook pages & my mind is blown. So many possibilities and questions. Does the watercolor interfere with the photo? How does it last over time? What size of paper do you use? Thank you 😊

  5. Oh my goodness… I would LOVE to give these a try since watercoloring is my favorite medium and actually the only coloring method I feel comfortable to use!
    Thanks for the inspiration Kymona!

  6. This ink smooshing turned out so much brighter than I thought it would! I’m so glad you tried that technique so we could see how vibrant those colors turn out. Also, your layout looks almost as much fun as the vacation. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thank you for sharing this technique, the result is absolutely stunning. I love the contrast you created with the splatter and thread!

  8. Love your layout, it is so bright and fun. Truthfully I am not a scrapbooker but seeing so many pretty layouts I am more and more inclined to start. It looks like such wonderful way to preserve memories.

  9. Wow! It looks like you had as much fun creating your scrapbook page, as you did on your day’s adventure. I love the vibrant shades and design. 🙂

  10. Glad you had a great trip and what a fun way to remember it. These markers look so vibrant, I really love the layout you made using them.

  11. What a pretty layout! I love to see scrapbook ideas and the way you used these watercolor markers on the background looks gorgeous!
