I knew that a water color effect would be the perfect background for a photo of my friend and I at the end of the Run or Dye race, where we are covered in dye. My goal was to recreate the look of the logo on the t-shirt with splotches of colors of all the different colors of dyes that were thrown at as during the race.
In addition to the water coloring, I used a variety of Bella Blvd papers for layering and my title. I knew that Bella Blvd's bright and fun colors and prints would be perfect for this layout.
Here is the end result.
To create the watercolor background I colored directly on my page with Gelato crayons in the colors of my choice. To blend them I simply dipped my finger in water and rubbed until I achieved the look I wanted.
For this assignment we were asked to mix and match papers from different collections. I used papers from about 6-7 Bella Blvd collections. All the Bella Blvd collections mix and match so easily, it's one of the things I LOVE about Bella Blvd.
