Welcome back, my dear crafty friends, to Weekly Scrapper! Don’t you just love Saturdays? It is one of my favorite days of the week, and especially because I get to share my passion of crafting with you. I just love spending the day in my craft room and do the things I love to do! I hope you will be able to take some time for yourself today and have fun with your crafting.
When creating a layout, the photo itself is the major guide to your process. Any time you are using a black and white photo, you can incorporate a lot of color on the remainder of the layout to balance the lack of color in the photo. Have you ever noticed that black and white emphasizes the faces in the photo? Missy did such an outstanding job on this layout. The colors she used really give the photo a pop and helps it really stand out.
Missy added some fun arrows and arranged them for her background, adhered them, then went over them with gesso. She added some shimmerz paints, washi tape, and embellished with some die cuts, tags, sequins. To top it off she did some machine stitching through the center of her arrows. This is such a fun and eye catching layout! Let me escort you over to Little Nugget Creations where you will find a step-by-step video, along with many more outstanding projects created by Missy. You will always leave her blog feeling very inspired.
Today’s card is all about the plaid background. Can you believe this gorgeous plaid was created with watercolors? You can get an intense background with watercolor paints!

I just love this plaid card; it is so eye-catching and a very fun technique! Handmade cards instantly brighten up anyone’s day.
Step outside the box and create unique watercolor plaid backgrounds in all colors.
