It’s a bumper week when I actually have the opportunity to post back to back. So, wanna talk watercolor labels? Remember I shared some Waterlogue app love in an earlier post? Well, I wanted to share how I created these lovely labels using this fun app. I’m always looking for different ways to present little happy packages to loved ones, and thought it would be a good idea to try this little experiment out using Silhouette’s Print and Cut feature.



The What

The How

Step 1: I created some filled circles in Silhouette Studio using light, pastel colors. I then created a PDF file via the Print window. I then converted my PDF file to a JPG which I used to upload into my Waterlogue app. The other option is to create your circles in any image editing software you have and upload that image in the Waterlogue app

Step 2: Using the Waterlogue app, I converted my image into watercolor, then merged the watercolor image into Silhouette Studio

Step 3: Using the circle tool, I cropped each of the colored  circles. This allowed me to make each one “cut-able” in Studio. Once I had each circle cropped, I added a white inner circle (using internal offset tool), and a sentiment using the Turner font from Creative Market (a freebie from a few weeks ago). I then used the Print and Cut feature (don’t forget the registration marks!) with the white sticker paper

The labels are now printed and ready for your pretty packages. They will look perfect on your treat bags or envelopes!

    I could kiss you Maritza. I use Waterlogue too, and I am currently in love with all things watercolour. It had never occurred to me to use it in this way for my cameo. I was going to get my watercolours out today, but instead, I will be playing with taking coloured shapes from my Sil Cameo and “waterloguing” them. Happy play time!!

      Thanks, Eliza! Check out Creative Market for watercolor options – I’m pretty sure you can find something at a reasonable price (or even free!)

    Love your projects ! So fresh & elegant in a charmingly playful way. Wondering if the floral paper you used in this project as well as in the tiny treat purse is a digitally printable pattern? If so would love to know.
    Can’t wait to play with your ideas & inspiration. Truly a fantastic site. Thank you, Lindsay

      Hi Lindsay! What a wonderful message to see first thing in the morning – thank you so much! The patterned paper I used (for both projects) comes in a huge pad/book from Michaels (Recollections Garden Florals). The pages are standard letter sized. Looking forward to seeing what you do – have a great day!
