Day 270: Memories Album Retreat Layout

The title on this layout was so interesting to make. Every person around me did it a bit differently, so there were a lot of variations.
The layout is 3x3 squares of Georgie, Lagoon Fundamentals, and Charlotte papers. The title is watercolored - we were given the individual letters cut out of White cardstock and a strip of watercolor paper to make them. Some ladies painted the watercolor paper then adhered the letters over top of the dried panel for a really crisp look. Some used the letters as a mask, working one letter at a time to ensure a clean line.
I chose to adhere all the letters onto my title bar and watercolor to my heart's content. That means I had a lot of bleeding in some areas, and not so much in others. Then I outlines the title letters with a black journaling marker to redefine where my letters originally were. I also added a wash of clear Wink of Stella to the letters for a subtle shimmer.
