Apply Watercolor Kit by Elena Olinevich

Elena Olinevich made me fall in love with her work when she displayed an artist layout showcasing her Mother in earlier ears with a DT assignment for Faber-Castell. Elena’s talent is nothing short of outstanding but she has a way of using several mediums from Faber-Castell to help aid the less talented at creating a masterpiece of their own. She does that in her latest kit for The Scrapbook Diaries, Apple.  Apple is a great example of how anyone without drawing skills can use watercolor pencils, Gelatos and more to create a magnificent mixed media layout.

As always, kits come complete with materials to make the featured layout and bonus.  We are offering this kit in complete and basic – only difference is the complete version includes the text stencil from The Crafters Workshop and a text stamp from Finnabair for Prima.

Just to prove how someone without drawing skills can do this – here’s my recreation…

Apple Remake

Not too shabby, right?  And following with out usual order of business, I needed to create a bonus layout to compliment the featured layout with products and technique.  At a loss for ideas I said to my sister, what do I do that i red/pink and I can draw?  She immediately thought of the heart…

Bonus Heart Page

Had so much fun doing both of these layouts. Thanks Elena!  It was great to watch the video and learn such awesome techniques as to how to layer color and elements.  Hope you like this one as much as I do.

Thanks for looking. Another new kit from Adrienne next week!
