Watercolor and Printables Tag

Tag it Tuesday

This week’s tag combines a small watercolor sample and printables from the store to create a rustic-themed tag. The colors in the wood printable are subtle and repeated in the small watercolor.

Printables:

My favorite printer brand for many years has been HP. I also use their ink supply service where I pay a monthly fee and they send me ink cartridges as needed. It comes out to be a lot less money this way. The HP Envy Inspire is a great-priced machine that will produce beautiful prints.

And if you are looking for a great crafting weight paper for printables, I have been using HP Project Paper. It is heavier than copier paper but not quite as heavy as cardstock. It is a great medium weight for layering, folding, and more!

The close-up image shows so much detail in the printable colors and texture to the subtle ink blending around the edges. You can see how simple the watercolor painting is and how it works well when cropped into a circle.

Inspirational Button Pins

Making fun expressive button pins with free printables.

pins in hand

These inspirational pins were made with two free printables in the store. A few days ago I posted about making earrings using the marbled paper printable. That same printable is used here. What a fun way to express yourself. The pins also make fun little items to share.

printables

For this size of a pin, a 1″ paper punch made cutting the circle easy. Then an appropriate word was chosen and trimmed to fit within the circle. Of course, these printables can be used in various craft projects. These free printables are available through the links below.
