Creating a Colorful Scrapbook Background

Magical Layout_Design Memory Craft (1)

Hi, Katie here. This is my first project as part of the Design Memory Craft Guest Design Team and I hope you like it! I created the big sunburst on the background of this layout with Gelatos® Colors and Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I love the creamy texture of the Gelatos®. They really live up to their name.

Here’s how I created this layout:


1. Lightly sketch out a sunburst with a pencil.

2. Fill in your sunburst with Gelatos® Colors and Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.

3. Using a wet paint brush, wet your colors. You can blend the colors slightly if you like.

4. Add your photo and any embelishments you want.

5. After I added my photo and embellishments I added what I consider my signature style which is doodling. I grabbed my black PITT® Artist Pens and my black Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and drew the clouds and my title.
