Wplus9 turn 4 in February and are celebrating all month long. As part of 3rd week of their Birthday Celebrations they have a challenge. The Wplus9 trend watch challenge focuses on trends - misting, metal, stripes, sequins, watercolour, hand colouring, etc, etc. There are a lot of fun trends around at the moment. For my challenge entry I have used watercolour splatters and sequins. The watercolour splatters were created by making a wash of a number of different colour Faber-Castell gelatos and flicking the paintbrush. The sentiment I created and printed and cut into a little flag ended banner. The multi-coloured star is centre of one of the Wplus9 quilt cuts 2 die set . I cut it out of many different colours and then pieced it together within the white frame. I then stuck on the sequin with glossy accents and finally adhered the panel to a white cardstock base. I hadn't tried this technique before, but I found it a lot of fun. As always thank you to anyone who stumbles upon my blog.
