Science Rocks!

Tia's Tips: Just like in science-experimentation is FUN! Don't stress, just PLAY-watercolors, colored pencils, aquarelle crayons, distress ink, acrylics, pigment powders, alcohol inks, or pastels. Just get some color down on the page-paint , flick, sprinkle, spray or scribble it. Then SAVE IT! You'll have a page full of beautiful color ready to be used! Cut-outs, backgrounds, strips-you've created your own unique piece of design paper-the possibilities are endless!

Sponsor: Lawn Fawn -

Hello Lawn Fawnies, I am excited to share ~ we have a little sale for you over at Passionate Paper Creations & Friends so jump on over to take advantage! Make sure you join, we have tons of fun and mounds of inspiration.

The Project:

I recently purchased pigment powders called 'Magicals' from Lindy's. I had a wonderful time playing with them! I used them with water, rubbing alcohol (91%) and Ranger's-blending solution. I played on watercolor paper and Yupo from Legion paper- it is a synthetic paper material that is ideal for working with both watercolor and alcohol inks.

I ended up with several 4x6 sheets of fun swirls of mixed up colors that just felt right to go with my Lawn Fawn stamp set-'Science of Love'!

Having a background in science, I just felt like my marker coloring wasn't going to do the justice to a beaker of solution like my swatches of Magicals! I chose several different colored background and stamped my images. Our sponsor Lawn Fawn is SO AWESOME-they gave us matching coordinated dies! I love getting a break from fussy cutting!

I have a friend whose daughter is in 9th grade and in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program. I am always thrilled to encourage and support girls and young women interested in STEM and especially this bright and energetic young lady. I was video chatting with my friend when she came home with her mid-term grades (all VERY impressive), so I knew I wanted to make this card for her! What the camera doesn't show is that I also used a black glitter gelly roll pen to fill in the word 'ROCK'-so there's so shimmer!


I used Magicals in the following sets:

  • Summer Break

  • Prairie Wildflower &

  • Haunted Halloween

Go out and grab that color medium you've not played with in awhile and be bold, get messy and have some creative fun!
