Scrapbook Layout created for Vicki Boutin DT - #SELFIE LOVE -
Hi there! Nathalie with you today bringing you a bit of inspiration using the beautiful Vicki Boutin mediums and her gorgeous All The Good Things Collection.
Spring has finally arrived in Canada, but the snow and cold still lingering, so I decided to create a Spring feel layout on a Winter picture using acrylic paints and ink for the background.
Using a gessoed Foundation paper for the background, a bit of thinned out Blue Hawaiian and Iced Daiquiri color pop acrylic paint were added to create the watercolor look on the page.
Before setting aside to dry, a few droplets of the paint were added to the background so that it adds to the messy /artsy feel of the background.
Once the background had dried, a bit of stamping was added. The script stamp image was added to the background using a matching color from the Cool set Color Wheel.
Also a bit of art crayon was added to the background so that it created a soft color haze around the picture. Just love how easy it is to add this crayon using the stencil brushes, and if you see the page you will not be able to realize that two different mediums were used in the background.
While the background set completely, the butterfly cut outs (Silhouette Store design #77428) were backed with papers from the All the Good Things collection and vellum.
To assemble it all, the picture was propped on some foam adhesive so that it pops of the background, and then the butterflies were placed around it.
A bit of foam adhesive behind the wings adds to the sense of movement of the page. In addition a few cardstock stickers and finishing elements were scattered around the butterflies.
Just a few more details complete the page, and the ephemera pack and cardstock stickers are the perfect size to add sentiment around the picture
To finish the page, a title was added using the collections Alphas; a few butterfly watercolor stickers were added, and then a bit of water down gold glaze was used to add some shine around the page ( a few gold splatters and some shine in the watercolor butterflies).
The colors on the page are perfect to bring Spring to a winter picture, and the soft background sets the perfect placement for the colorful butterflies. The following video will show you a more in-depth look on how the page came together
I hope this inspires you to play with some of the beautiful Vicki Boutin goodies. They are fantastic!!!
