Layout with Watercolor Pencils ... Claribou's first official victim
Ann Corbiere-Scott's Bloom Art Journal page featuring Aquarelle water color pencils

Step-by-step video : Watercolor background with stencil by Valérie Ouellet


Good day! 

I'm Valérie Ouellet from Quebec and I've been scrapbooking for 6 years now. I'm a stay-at-home mom happy to be taking care of 3 little monsters which are often the main subject of my layouts. While I'm creating, my style is quite lively and colorful and I tend to use watercolor often and medium.

I present you my first creation for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft as an invited DT. I'm honoured to be part of the team for the next 4 months.

It was the first time that I worked with Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I'm used to work with watercolor pellets. I really liked the pencils because the creation of delicat and precise patterns is much easier. They come with rich pigments which give a very bright result.



Here is a step by step photos and a video to show use of Mixed Media stencils and Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. (link below)


First, I draw my Mixed Media Stencil with Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.


Then I add water to create the watercolor effect.


Finally I color a section of my page on my drawing and I add water.


Your background is ready, it is only missing your scraps of paper, photo and embellishments.

I also like to add drops of paint to complete my layout.
