Be Fearless

Scrapbook Layout created for Vicki Boutin DT   - BE FEARLESS -

Hello there!

Welcome to my blog!  Today, I am bringing you a new project all about my wish for Spring to promptly arrive.  And what better way to welcome Spring than flowers and happy colors - all courtesy of Vicki Boutin's All The Good Things collection

The inspiration for this page comes from the floral paper in the All The Good Things collection.   All the colors in the flowers are exquisite and scream to be fussy cut. 

In order to pop the color of the flowers, a bit of mixed media was added to the background.  First the page was prepped with some gesso and a palette knife, so that there is a lot of texture on the page.  Next,  a cooler palette of art crayons was added to the background so that all the distress of the gesso application appeared as the color was added.   To add a bit more color to the page, a few scribbles of the Vicki Boutin crayons was added, since the page was prepped, these scribbles could easily be blended to the page by diluting the ink with a bit of water.

Once the background was dried, a Paige Evans cut file was added on top of the color background, as to create a layer for the picture.

A few of the florals were then cut and bundled at the corners of the picture, as well as the bottom left corner of the page.   A few more embellishments from the  All The Good Things collection were then added to complete the  clusters in the page.   The title for the page comes from the die cut pack, and summarizes the story of the picture.

To add  more details to the page, a few of the rub-ons and enamel dots were placed so that they bring shine and complete the look of the clusters in the page.   Finally, a few lines of journal were added, as well as some sentiments using the rotary stamp from the All the Good Things collection.   After a few gold ink splatters, the layout was finished.   To see a more in-depth look on how the page was created,  please enjoy the following video:

I love how this page looks, the floral motifs pop off the page, but the background also help to keep the harmonious look of the page.   I hope this inspires you.   Remember to check Vicki Boutin's products at your local scrapbook store.   The collection and mediums are superb.

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

Take care,
