Scrapbook Layout created for Vicki Boutin - ALWAYS GRATEFUL -
Nathalie with you with the last post of Gratitude week here in the blog. For this page, I chose to go with a color combination that will create lots of contrast on the page thus bringing all the details and subject forward.
The background of this page was created using navy cardstock and gesso. I pulled the masking flower stencil from VIcki's latest release and used gesso and the stencil brush to create the large flowers in the background, then brought the flower stencil from the All The Good Things collection to add the smaller flowers.
Next i mixed some iridescent glaze with art crayons ( in pink and blush tones) and a bit of water to create the colorful splatters that surround the flowers. I made sure not to add too much water so that the splatters did not soak into the page, and stayed as a lose sphere on top of the paper.
While the background dried, I pulled papers in blush and pink tones from both Vicki's paper collections to back the cut out that forms the title. Also, some matte acrylic gel was used to cover the word "always" followed by the fine gold glitter from Vicki's Mixology collection.
I kept the color scheme onto all the embellishments that create the clusters at the sides of the pictures. Once again, i reached for stickers from both All the Good Things and Field Notes collections that had lots of pink and blush tones in it, as well as black and white watercolor stickers.
I love how this page turned out, the contrast and color combo are perfect to document some of the most important people in my life, the following video will show you how this page came together:
As always do not hesitate to contact me, if you have questions on how this was put together, and remember to join the VIcki Boutin Mixed Media community on Facebook to find lots of inspiration.
For all our US friends, we hope you have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving! We are so grateful for you all!
