Scrapbook Layout created for Vicki Boutin DT  - LUCKY ME -

Hi There!

I am so excited to share my first post as member of the Mixed Media Makers for Vicki Boutin.   Our assignment was to work with products of the new "All The Good Things" collection that spoke to us.  Well there is so much to chose from, that it was hard to chose just one!

I love color, so what better way to show it than by using a rainbow as a  background for a layout.  I started by adding gesso to one of the foundation papers.  This ensures that the mediums flow nicely on the paper, and prevents the paper from buckling.  

The  acrylic paints are very pigmented, so  a little bit goes a long way when applying them onto paper.  Since I am using a cut file (from the Silhouette Store), I backed each of the letters of the title with papers from the 7x10 paper pad, and then matched the strokes and paint color to the letter and its size.     To finish the painted look of the background, droplets of color were added by diluting the paint with water, and then sprinkling them on top of the paint strokes.

A bit of foam adhesive brings the title forward, and creates that soft shadow on the background.   I chose to add a few embellishments around each one of the letters in the title.   There are so many pieces to chose from, but my favorite are the watercolor stickers!  Having the freedom to add the color of your choice to the stickers makes your project a one-of-a-kind!

The picture documented in this page is our first family selfie of the year.   A few pieces of the frames serve as layers behind the picture.  But then let’s talk about the stickers from the “All Good Things” collection.  Loved the sayings Vicki has added, and perfect to add the sentiment of this page.  To finish the page, I simply added a few stamped sentiments   on the paint strokes using matching colors of ink from the Color Wheels, and then a few lines of journal.  

I love the how easy it was to combine all the colors and embellishments to create what will be the first page of our 2018 album.  The next video will show you a more in-depth look on how this ppage came together:

Well that is all for me today!.  Don't forget to check All The Good Things collection, and all the mixed media products, too

As always, let me know if you have questions on how this came together.

Take care!
