Scrap Therapy plus a little Step by Step, Scrap Jacked

The 1st Friday lot of challenges are up over at

Here's my examples for the Room Inspiration Challenge,
and its all about the Nursery!

Nursery 1

Nursery 2


Here's a STEP BY STEP on the above

Have you ever had a go at playing with one of Prima's Paintables?

Using watercolour pencils and deepening the colour by brush and water is so much fun!

You can find some Paintable papers here

And by using my Room Inspiration # 2 LO as an example, here's how....

Choose your watercolour pencil/s

Start colouring in! :P Shade lightly for pale colour - and a heavier shade will encourage a darker colour.

Find a paint brush and some water

Start painting the water on...



Here's the finish:

This is a relatively easy LO to do... just added some rosettes under the photo and some butterflies!

I'd love to see some of the other paintables done... I know I'm going to add a few more to my next order :wink:
