There are SO many ways to add water colors to your paper projects.
I used a good old water color know, the $1 kind.
Come see how the Paper Girls got messy!

Paper Girls Challenge #63
Today we are challenging you to use school themed products on your layouts. Most of my products came from Farm House Paper Co. "302". I love how their vintage office themed supplies
are perfect for school layouts.

Kiwi Lane Designs Blog Hop

Welcom to my blog and thanks for joining the KLD hop for this month.
I was sent the Playtime accessory set.

The dragonfly caught my eye and I decided to use it with a bit of glitter and shine. First I traced the dragonfly on transparency and just the wings on glitter netting. Then I traced the dragonfly 3 times on blue patterened paper and 3 times on gold glitter netting.
~ dream ~
To form the flowers I tucked the "head" under the body and crimped the paper so that there was no gap between the wings. I stacked the gold netting on top of the blue paper and then added purple Stickles and a black center gem.
Grab yourself a set of these great designer templates and see how you are inspired!!!
A random winner from ONE of the 10 blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog), will be given a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop, for leaving a comment.
