I’m back from a warm and relaxing Spring Break vacation and am excited to get back into my studio!  Today I thought I would share my “March” Place in Time Graphic 45 vintage layout and a video featuring a technique for making watercolour flowers using Distress Markers.

My mother turns 85 in November, and I have decided to surprise her with a 12 x 12 photo album.  I’m using Graphic 45 “Place in Time” collection and duplicating photos from her vintage scrapbooks.  Mostly they are pictures of herself, friends and family around 1954 and 1955.  

I have already posted the January and February layouts, and I thought I’d share the album as I work on it.  So, here is March….

I was so excited to find these photos of my mother at a St. Patrick’s Day party!  What luck!  Her roommate was Irish, so I can see why they had a party.

The technique featured on this layout is the watercolour flowers…

The flowers are cut with Spellbinders (Donna Salazar) “Rose Creations” die set

I made a video tutorial that shows how you can make these flowers, which I am thinking look like pansies or violets…either way they’re purple flowers that match the floral images on the paper.

You can also click HERE to go to my YouTube channel and watch the video on a bigger screen.

I hope to be making more video tutorials in the future, so if you would like to “stay tuned” then click SUBSCRIBE while you are watching.  

I hope Winter is coming to an end wherever you live and that Spring weather has arrived!
