Love You

Scrapbook Layout created for the Vicki Boutin DT  - LOVE YOU -

Hi there!
Nathalie with you today as we start a new month.   February is the month of LOVE, and we are hoping to provide you with some inspiration that will help you incorporate Vicki's products and collections into your documenting!  For today's project i combined a bit of VB art crayons, some of the glazes, stamps and stencils to create a page that celebrates the love amongst siblings.

The inspiration for the color combination of this page was based on the cut out (i used a cut file from Paige Evans and my Cameo to create the large die cut).  After creating last week's project, i had some leftover gold glaze which i used to create a texture piece of cardstock, and then diluted the leftovers to cover the die cut with a shimmering coat of glaze ( the cut was created on salmon colored cardstock).   The diluted glaze adds a bit of shimmer to the cut out.

The color of the background was chosen to make the cut out stand out.   I used some blue and navy art crayons (neutral and cool Art Crayon sets) to create the watercolor look on the background.  Once it dried, a few flowers were stamped using art crayons diluted with water and a bit of iridiscent glaze.   To bring a bit of contrast and texture to the background, a bit of iriiscent glaze was added using a palette knife through the butterfly stencil of the All The Good Things collection.

I pulled a picture of my littles (niece and nephew) from a few years back, and used  it to back one of the hearts in the cut out.   The papers used  to back the cut out come from the All The Good Things  and Field Notes collection as well as the 6x8 paper pad.  I chose to stay in the blush/pink tones for the lettters, and backed the second heart with vellum.

To makes sure the picture stands out in this page, as well as the background and cut out, i pulled a few stamped flowers and colored them with a combination of art crayons and iridiscent paste, so that they have a light touch of colour.

I layered the flowers in an "S" form around the picture and cut out so that they merge with the stamped images in the background.  A few more small details complete the page.  I have created a small video that will show you how this page came together:


This page is soft, simple and perfect to document the "new" love between siblings.  Remember to check VIcki's products, her paper collections and media line are perfect to document all those love memories.  If you have questions on how this came together, just contact me!
