Memories Last Forever | Watercolouring + Quilling

This project was created as a Design Team Project for Pretty Paper Studio and this post first appeared in August 2015 on Pretty Paper Studio's Blog.

Hello, everyone! I'm here to share yet another project. This one, as already mentioned above, was created for PPS's Colouring Challenge. At the time, I was just getting slightly better at brush lettering than when I began a few months ago. So I decided to make something that could be framed.

I combined water colouring, brush lettering, and Quilling in my project. Here's what I made. I thought I'd get it framed but I haven't gotten around to doing that yet :P Soon, hopefully :)

While I researched water colouring techniques, I came across what's known as a water colour wash and decided to use that technique when I created the background on the water colour paper that came in my DT kit.

Then I sprayed some Heidi Swapp Color Shine Citron Mist and added the sentiment.

Even though I painted the words over the shimmer, it is visible through the lettering. I'm not sure how well you can see this in the image, but the words are shining.

Next, I added a Blue Feather from Prima's Bedtime Story collection and then added Quilled Swirls around it.

Here are a few close-up shots of my project.

That's all I have for now. I'll be back during the week with another post.
