Hi again :) I'm back with another share from our project life album and got my hand messy with a bit of mixed media fun to document June with the help of some great items from Vicki Boutin's Field Notes collection teamed with a splash of gorgeous colour from Jane Davenport's Mermaid Markers.

If you haven't already had a play with Mermaid Markers then you are missing out, because unlike regular watercolours the brush pens are filled with water reactive dye ink that produces some brilliantly vivid colours. 

 I used a wet brush with clean water to prep my cardstock for my monthly title card, then used a mermaid maker to lay down some colour for the background. Once dry I used a wet brush to lift some of the colour to create varied texture. I used my favourite black inkpad to stamp one of the designs from the Escape stamp and die set before layering a few circle elements from the ephemera pack with some flowers from the watercolour sticker pack. I used the black mermaid marker from the shipwrecked set to hand letter my title with the brush pen then let it dry before cutting it out and adding it to the card.

I diluted the yellow mermaid marker with water before applying it onto my filler card... applying the colour in various strengths to create a more interesting look, then used an ink applicator to add black ink over one of the stencils before adding a sentiment from the sticker pack along with a couple of puffy stickers

Using more painted backgrounds paired with a repeated pattern from the stamp set... I like the contrast of the bright colours with the graphic black and white elements in this collection. 

Using no patterned paper was a little bit daunting at first, but the more I played the more I liked that it gave me the ability to chose any colours I wanted! 

The mermaid marker can also be used for stamping and applying ink over a wet background creates some interesting results. 

Although the watercolour stickers from this collection are made to be coloured, I decided to leave the large numbers white to help them to stand out against my painted background.
