Tammy's first Watercolour and Words Share

Hi all
Tammy here today to share my creation for the 'Watercolour and Words Challenge' over at Scrap Matrix Shares at the moment.
If you haven't seen the it is....

So create a project using watercolours and words.
They happen to be two of my favourite things!! (yes I'm singing!!)
I got to work with the gorgeous Prima Watercolours in 'Tropical'. 
I'd been wanting to try these out for ages, so was thrilled when they arrived. 
The colours in Tropical are strong and vibrant, so just perfect for me.

So here's what I came up with:

Love love love the bright vibrant colours, mixed with the black and the white. 
I painted those black stripes on. Simple and instant background.
 I've done this a few times now and just love the effect.
In fact I've created a video of this layout further down my page,
so you can watch me do this. 

I used a variety of words. 
Some 7Dots Stickers (love these) and the new 13Arts Words stickers. 
I love that these are clear so they work really well on photos.
I also used the Heidi Swapp epoxy words.
I had a whole heap of fun with Dina Wakley Abstract Blooms Stamps
 I added watercolour to some of  these too.
You can watch that on the video.

This layout celebrates a surprise 16th birthday party that my daughter's friends organised for her.
It was such a sweet thing to do, and this photo captures the moment she walked in.
I just love the emotion, and knew I needed to scrap it.
I also knew that I needed it to be bright and funky to go not only with the happy celebratory occasion, but also with the 'teenage' theme.
Those metal flowers painted black, alongside the stamped flowers are just perfect for this.

Without further ado, here's the video for you to watch and see EXACTLY how I created it:
I'm reasonably new to the whole land of you tube and recording my process,
so I hope you like it.

So there you have it!
I'd love to know what you think of the video.....leave a comment and let me know.
I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!
