sweet – diy paper elements | vicki boutin

Hi everyone, Jana back again with a new Layout for you. I had such a great time playing with all the different Vicki Boutin Medias. It was last week when I could not get to sleep, so I sat down on my table and started to add colors to a big piece of Cardstock. I started with the Color Pop Acrylic Paint Set 3, just added the color to the paper with a big brush and a brayer.

The next layer was some Art Crayons, mixed with Water. I used the “kissing” technique and also used the Art Crayons for splattering. Then I grabbed some Iridescent Glaze and mixed in some black slices from the Art Crayons – the result is stunning, a deep sparkling grey, love it! I added the Glaze through a stencil but also smutched it on the Layers with a pallet knife. The last Layers are some stamps! I used the Color Wheel Pigment Ink Pads – Cool Tones and some Black Ink for stamping.

So much FUN on one paper, sadly to say that I did NOT took any pictures from the finished paper before I run it through my Big Shot to get out the Stars!! But here you can see the Paper with the star holes in it… I already have some ideas to use the leftover paper! Love it!
I wanted to create some DIY paper elements and decided to get a lot of stars from different papers (Tissue paper, Vellum and black Cardstock. But also some VB “All the Good Things” patterned papers) in different sizes. I sewed the different layers together and I’m totally thrilled how it looks!

But I wanted to use them on a Layout so; let´s have a look on that!

I started with the white Foundation Paper and some Art Crayons (#2 cool) – scribbled them on some plastic, added a touch of water and “kissed” the paper. But this time I just added it in small doses. Because I knew I wanted to add a lot of the stars and they are the Highlight on my page, no big mixed media background needed!

Next to the stars I only added one photo, some Journaling (on small vellum stripes), a title (Foam Thickers) and some Enamel Dots (finishing Elements). No more patterned Paper or big Elements here. I am so happy about this Page!
At the end I decided to add some small black paint splashes over the Layout. I am so in LOVE!
