Tic Tac Toe Guest Designer


Hello everyone, today I'm guest designing for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge using the fun challenge board below. I chose the bottom row across - Fun Fold, Floral Image, Splatters. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the background I shared in my stories where I watercolored using a stencil. This is that background dressed up with some stamps and splatters. 

To create my background I took a piece of watercolor paper and taped my stencil over top. Then I lightly sponged some antique linen distress ink through the stencil. I removed the stencil and painted the design, added some text detail with a stamp and finishing off with white acrylic paint splatters. 

I used the same paint colors to create stripes on a separate piece of watercolor paper and stamped a sentiment over top.  The inside strip was created by taping off the edge and stenciling the flowers in two shades of distress oxide.
