Bubble Bath

Ready to giggle? I couldn’t help laughing when I went to check on my daughter in the bath one night. And this is what I found she had been up to…

She’d gotten can of shaving cream lathered into a wild froth and created a lovely harido. A harido with a side of attitude.

I had two inspirations for this page.

 

  1. Shimelle’s repeat a shape challenge
  2. DCWV’s May stack challenge. Here is their sketch to draw from…

I took the circle elements of the sketch as inspiration as to add lots of circle layers to create bubbles. Heat embossed and watercolored bubbles, topped off with DCWV vellum circles and a couple of circles punched from pattern paper. (My DCWV paper stack this time around was the 8.5×11 Textiles stack.) Here is what all those repeated circle layers look like up close.

If you are afraid to add watercolor to your pages, this is a simple way to keep it easy and contained. Heat emboss a shape and watercolor inside the lines! I have to admit that I did have bleeding underneath the embossing my first try. But I tried again and blotted up the really wet watercolor paint right away and gave it a bit of heat from the heat gun and that controlled the leakage. Add in some spatter and any uncontrolled leak looks intentional!

Go try some layers and some watercoloring!
