Jasmines' Distress Ink Watercolour background.

Two weeks ago at the 'Scrap and Chat' Retreat I sat next to a super
scrappy lady, Jasmine Shea.  Her layouts are always so unique, she is one very talented scrapbooker.
So I completely made the most of her expertise and got her to give me a step by step on how she creates 
her watercoloured backgrounds using distress inks.  
Jasmine actually has a 'how to' tutorial up on the Scrapfriends blog here if you want to give it a try for yourself. 
Here's the layout I created.

Scrapping a picture of our late dear cat Percy.


No patterned papers just some gauze under my photo and a few little embellishments.  
The satin flowers from Tiddlypeep Designs were a 
gift in our retreat goodie bag, perfect colour match for my page.



So now I've had a 'how to' lesson I'll definitely be trying this technique again! ;)


Lastly, I just want to say a huge thankyou to Linda, Jan and Sandra for each awarding me with the 
Leibster blog award.  Three in one week!! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it and feel very honoured.  It's very gratifying to know that there are bloggers out there who like and appreciate the work I put up here.  I really encourage you to check out their blogs and take a look at their work. Thanks so much to all my readers.  

cheers, 
Leonie.
