I used Twinkling H2O's (watercolors infused with mica for a glittery sheen) in strawberry colors to create my title. The watercolor effect of the letters reminds me of how juicy those strawberries were - yum!
First, I drew my letters on regular cardstock. You could also print or stamp a fillable alpha. Next, starting with the darkest color and using a fine-tipped brush, I added paint to the bottom portion of my letters.
Then I added a lighter color, blending the colors by overlapping the paint. I made the letters more strawberry-like by topping them with green, then using a milky watercolor to blend the pink through to the green.
When the letters were dry, I cut them out and added them to my layout with just a bit of glue. I like the way the watercolor paint made the letters curl, so I didn't glue them entirely down.
If your next layout is in need of a custom title treatment, give this watercolor technique a try. The end result will be a unique, artsy, and beautiful title.
