Vienna With Some Watercolors

I made this page, about a place I love, in a city I love. Vienna has a special corner in my heart. Because my husband and I were both students when we met, we had to finish our studies before one of us could move. We had a long distance relationship for two long years. I was living near Tel Aviv, and he was in Vienna. Every time I came to visit we would explore the city together. And somehow we would always end up having coffee in the MQ.
I used again watercolor paper and masking fluid (if you want to know more about masking fluid, check out this previous post). I splattered some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold and Teal, and let everything dry.

I used for the first time the Amy Tangerine Embroidery stencil from Yes Please. It's so easy to use, and adds a lot to the page.

 I embellished a bit with some gold and teal washi tape, some wood veneers, puffy stickers (also from Amy Tangerine) and stamped flowers that I also colored with watercolors and cut out.

Thanks for visiting!

  3. beautiful layout, the stitching is a great finishing touch!

  4. so beautiful! I don't know why I never thought to use my watercolors and masking fluid on a layout background! Thanks for the inspiration!
