I am excited to share that I will be starting a new series at Teach Well... Teach Often beginning next week! I am always inspired by children's literature. Whether it be the writing or the creative illustrations I seem to be drawn to the new books coming out this year! Starting next week I will be having a guest author or illustrator featured! I can't wait to share with your our first guest, Mara Rockliff, the author of The Busiest Street in Town. (This new series will not effect the guest designers that will be featured about once a week here.)

I have also begun my design terms for Craft Warehouse and Momenta! This layout is using Momenta's products. I had a blast with this yellow patterned paper.

I used their stencils to create a watercolor look. What I loved about this paper is that the pattern made a resist to the paint. So you can actually see the pattern in the purple paint.

To get this look - Place your stencil on the paper. Put paper towels around the edge of the stencil and then also cover your entire layout with a good layer of paper towels as well. Place liquid watercolor in a spray bottle. Put a small amount of water in the bottle. Spray your layout. Quickly roll an entire roll of paper towels across your page to get access of water color off your page as soon as possible. Let it dry completely or quicken the process with a heat gun.

Create Well: Experiment with patterned paper and watercolor to see what patterns resist or not. Use what you like on your next layout!
