OFF THE RAILS: Colour it up!

With WATERCOLOURS....that's our challenge at
OFF THE RAILS this month. Along with this inspiration board:
I took the blues and pinks from the board. And had FUN!
This is my step grand girl. Such a SWEETIE:)
 A 'FEED YOUR CRAFT' flair beside an old, rusted 'swee't one,
but hey! It looks OK I reckon:) I've got tissue paper behind the water
colouring to give some texture. Used water colour pencils.
Thanks Cheryl O'B!
 And then added some stenciling & lots of stamping. Little beads etc
 Those felt flowers are very very old! But I am STASH BUSTING
this year. So feeling good they've been used!
 I didn't have the right alphas left except for the 'A'. The 'Ls' are upside down
7s. The G is a 9. the O's are Q's. The D is a P cut down....
 And, I last...but I figure if you're in a hurry you
have the scroll down button. And it's how they downloaded.
And today I was being lazy!!!
Thanks for checking this one out. If you haven't had a go at 
water colouring. Now's your chance. Use clear or white gesso on the bg
before you start - gives you a great base so your card doesn't warp
too much, too...
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥


  1. That mood board is STUNNING. May have to make some time to play along with this one! Love the feathered accent on this - such a clever touch of texture!

  2. Very pretty & girly layout, perfect for the photo!!! That old, rusted 'sweet' flair is good, full of character, I think!!!

  3. Ah Lizzy - you've nailed it! The bright pinks and blues are perfect with her TShirt. Love the use of the old and new flairs and the feather. Stash busting too! Now that's clever. TFS

  4. Verry Pretty!!!! Just AWESOME!!! ♡ Anna xo

  5. That mood board is amazing and I love your take on it!! Your watercolouring is just gorgeous (and a perfect match for your grandies T shirt) and you always know the best embellies to use .. love that feather and those flairs!! A fabulous 'girlie' page!! hugs xx

  7. This looks wonderful Lizzy, just love the blue and pink together.. so many bits on your back ground and good on you for stash busting... I hope things are going well..

  8. I love the colors you used to match her shirt and that you used up your Alphas! Really dig that gesso w tissue paper and water colors, so pretty! might have to give that a whirl soon just as soon as I'm done with Earth Day projects! hugs!

  13. Have always loved water colour effect and you nailed the colours for your photo. Love the pink and blue with the touch of stamping showing through. Stash busting is such a good feeling. Another corker of a layout

  14. There really is no need for you to ever buy patterned paper because it wouldn't even come close to the stunning patterns you create yourself!

  15. It;s such a beautiful "complete" and satisfying to look at

  16. Such a gorgeous and artsy background! Love the colouring too! Beautiful work! ;-)
