my happy | vicki boutin

hi and hello everyone, Jana back again with a different project for you.
this one is completely clean without any mixed media, but you´ll see that there was no room for that!
I started with some cut files from the Silhouette Store (Design ID #237217, #249919, #242203, #241018, #241018, #239848 and #244543) and some awesome bright colored patterned paper from Vicki Boutin´s „All the Good THings“ Collection.
It took some time to cut all the flowers and to roll them up, i used the Hot Glue Gun for a quick and easy way to glue the finished rolled Flowers together.
This is how it was looking on my white Desk… i love that photo


But, i wanted to create a project and not a nice flower bouquet on my Desk… I already had some great Ideas but somehow the implementation was really difficult! I have never used such big and dimensional elements on a layout/project.

I grabbed a round canvas and layed the flowers down and really was happy about how it looks. But when i started working on the canvas with colors, i totally missed the target and it did not fit together anymore. Do you know that situation when you just do it and you´re going with the flow/Colors?!


I will show you the finished canvas in the next post here… i LOVE it!
it needed four (4!!!!) start-ups for this Layout… i don´t know what happened but yeah, sometimes it is very hard to get something done, right?!
I grabbed a sheet from the 12×12 foundation paper and a black paper (with white script – „Pretty Words“) from the Paper Pad and started again… and this time it just worked or let me say, i just glued the flowers down! I did not tried to overthink the process…


i LOVE how it turned out, it is not my usual Style and not my „go to“ colors but it reminds me of a meadow with many different flowers… and it reminds me of spring!
Because of all the bright colors i decided to add some b/w elements between them, just for some areas where your eyes can rest or… i don´t know. I grabbed the Butterflies from the watercolor cardstock stickers and scattered them around the page. Really like how that looks





and here is my little process Video for this Project…
