Hand drawn patterns on your scrapbook pages

Hi Everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I created a page about how colour filled our winters are and some of my family’s favourite things about winter.  For this page, I created a few different hand drawn pattern ideas for the Get It Scrapped blog article about Creating hand drawn patterns.

I created a rain drop effect by directly drawing oval/tear shapes onto the top section of my layout using coloured pencils, then adding just a little bit of water with a precision water brush.  I also drew some different patterns  – swirls, flowers and stars using the water colour pencils, adding water, then pen in some sections when it was dry.  By using small pieces of paper you can experiment without worrying about ruining your page.  I then made sure to position the papers to create a balance in colour with my photos.  If you want to see ideas for creating hand draw patterns onto your pages, including the directly to the back ground see the blog article here and also this page of Wilna Furnstenburg’s on the Get It Scrapped blog too.

Thanks for stopping by,
