Sweet Things

 Scrapbook Layout created for Vicki Boutin DT  -  SWEET THINGS -

Hi there!
So glad to see you here!   Today, I want to share with you all a new layout that celebrates all things girly from the “All The Good Things” collection. 

This page started with a watercolor background created using the warm color Art Crayon set.   First one of the foundation papers was prepped with some gesso.  Then, the background was created by adding some diluted art crayons using some of the water brushes and a piece of acetate (just like in the popular “Packaging” technique).  A few splatters of diluted Gold Glaze medium complete the background.

 While the background dried completely,   all the flower embellishment of the page were created by stamping the flower images (all 3 sizes of them) onto Mixed Media paper with Archival ink.  The coordinating dies are a great and fast way to create individual images of the flowers.   A bit of color was then added to the flowers using the same Art Crayon set from the background.

Once everything was dried properly, all the flowers and fussy cut stamped leaves were glued in clusters that framed the picture.   A third cluster was then added to the top corner of the page (to complete a visual triangle).

  Now it comes to embellishing the page using “All The Good Things” goodies.   There was so much to choose from, but I kept it simple so that the background, flowers and picture shine harmoniously in the page.   Just a few enamel dots, cardstock stickers, and a title created using a combination of both foam and alpha thickers.   Did I forget to mention that the paper clip embellishments can easily become die cuts when you trim the bottom / paper clip part of them.

This page is filled with “All The Good Things” goodies, and I love it.   To see how this page came, just sit and enjoy the following video:

That is all for me today.  Till next time!
