A Watercolour Background – JOT MAGAZINE

Issue 13 of Jot Magazine was released into the wide world this month and I was lucky enough to have a layout published. Go check Jot Magazine out Here.

The background of layout I made with other intentions but then it got put to the side.  I used a whole heap of random number Thickers and then coated them in 5 coats of gesso to give a base to add colour to.  I used my new Newton & Winsor watercolours to create a colour wheel over the top. It turned out so good.  I am so happy with it.

This layout is show casing NUMBERS.  I recently reconnected with my High School best friend and this prompted me to think about all the numbers within our friendship.  So, the numbers on the background were perfect to tie in the theme.

Here’s a close up:


I created a short video to show how I made the background.  You can check it out on my YouTube channel POPLEOPOD.
