Hi everyone, Jana back again with a new fun Layout for you.
This Layout is about my Middle One, he turned 13 last year, and he hates me for taking Pictures from him – but Selfies with me are fine! YAY!
So, I wanted to create a Page with a lot of Flowers on it and also some “girly” colors. I started with a 12×12 sheet from the White Foundation Paper but I did not used any Gesso on it.
I used “Coral Macaroon” from the Acrylic Color Pop Paints (set 3) and added water to it so that I can handle the acrylic Color like a Watercolor, I also used a piece of plastic to get the color on the white Paper. Remember, I don´t have any Gesso on the Paper – the paint was still a bit thick for getting the look I wanted, so I just added more water – the paper did not curled up!! The Paper is just awesome, I totally love it! For my second Color I grabbed the Art Crayons (set 1 – warm) and scribbled it onto a piece of plastic, added water and smeared it on the background
Once everything was dry I grabbed some Stamps (Dies and Clear Acrylic Stamps Set1), the Color Stamp Pads (set2) and added some tiny Hearts here and there over the Page.
The colors turned out great and I really love how they mixed together! Buuuuut, i needed a touch of black. The photo shows me and my son and we both have dark hair and I wanted to have the darkness (if that makes any sense to you) on the Background too. So I grabbed a black Art Crayon and some Bubble wrap and stamped it down. Some splatters in black and I was very happy with the outcome.
The Flowers in the Ephemera – Icons Pack are ALL awesome and I grabbed a lot of them for my Layering around my photo and papers. The stamped hearts had not the color I wanted so I covered them up with some tangled thread and flowers. You can always fix little problems by covering them up with bigger Elements or by adding more color.
I placed the big word Happy directly on my photo and love how that looks. On the Foam Thickers sheet are also some golden glitter hearts and they look great next to the flowers, right?
The last things i´ve added are the Finishing Embellishments, like Enamel Dots or Epoxy Dots.
I really had fun with this Layout and I am REALLY in love with it.
I also have a little process Video for you to watch! https://youtu.be/Weu7gyrMMsg
