Be You

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  - BE YOU -


Welcome to my blog! 

It is my turn to share some inspiration over at Scrapbook Nerd, and this time around, I wanted to use a bit of mixed media and Vicki Boutin's new All The Good Things collection to create a soft layout about my daughter.

For this layout, I chose a rather masculine palette, and worked some Vicki Boutin art crayons to create this background on the Vicki Boutin Foundation paper.  Once the page dried,  it was trimmed and stitched to one of the pages in the 12x12 paper pad.

While the background dried, a cut out (created from a Silhouette cut file) was backed with vellum, and the picture was backed with layers of papers from the collection.

To set up the page, a small cluster of ephemera and a small cut out were glued to the bottom of the page,   The butterfly was then attached to the page (as in fight) using some foam adhesive.

The title for this page comes from some of  the ephemera from the collection.  The gold glitter heart and arrow bring attention to the title, and also  create a cluster around th bottom part of the  picture.   A few fussy cut butterflies and some gold splatters complete this page.

Just love how this page came together.  The colors in the background complement the ones in the butterflies and frame the picture beautifully. Remember to check Scrapbook Nerd for all the materials used in this page. 

If you have questions on how this came together, do not hesitate to contact me!

Take care!
