Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd On Line March Madness crop - LAUNDRY LOVE-
The March Madness on-line crop is in full swing over at Scrapbook Nerd. The DT has been issuing challenges to all the participants, and now is my turn for my second challenge. This time is all about mixed media.
I started this page by adding a thin layer of gesso to the page (mostly at the center of the page),then using shimmer watercolor, the background was created to match the colors in the Domestic Bliss collection from Simple Stories.
Until the paint dried, I used a Simple Stories cut file to cut the large ampersand on one of the papers from the Domestic Bliss collection. By adding an offset to the image, and adding some hand stitching, the focus of the page becomes the ampersand image.
After attaching the Ampersand to the page, a few clusters were created on the page -keeping in mind the visual triangle rule-. A collection of pieces from the collection formed the title and clusters in this piece.
This layout documents the love our baby has for fresh laundered clothes. So i attached a picture of the baby napping on a fresh pile of clothes, and framed it using clusters made from pieces of the collection. A few enamel dots, and the typed journal lines complete this page>
I love the colors behind the picture, and how everything points to the subject of the layout.
Remember to join us at Scrapbook Nerd's March Madness on-line crop to see what the DT has been creating, there is always a large gift certificate for a lucky participant.
As always you can contact me with any questions on how this came together.
