You are the cutest

[werbung]
Hello, Jana back again with you. I have a new fun Layout to share.
Sometimes a Project comes together on detours, right?! This happened on this Layout.
I started with stamping some circles; I just wanted to do some color swatches. But I had so much fun stamping with the bright colors (Color Stamp Pads Set2) that I grabbed many more and went totally crazy.

As you can see I also went fussy cutting crazy, haha! This Layout really took me some time. I stamped for a while, I fussy cut for a while, I organized all the elements for a while, I glued everything down for a while… oh and I also stitched like crazy for a while! But despite the whole work, I had a lot of fun.

I stamped with three Sets and six colors (Color Stamp Pads Set2)… and yes, there is yellow and orange on this Layout. When you know me and my Projects then you may have noticed that these are not my first color choices. But today I wanted to create a bright Layout and the six colors are working so great together; I just didn´t want to separate them!

I grabbed some Art Crayons (Warm Set) for matching tiny color splatters. I really love how this looks, is giving the final touches.

Then I grabbed my tablet, watched some scrapbooking process videos and started to cut out all of the stamped images. This was very relaxing.

Once I was ready I grabbed the 6×8 and the 12×12 Paper Pad from the “All the Good Things” Collection to punch out some matching hearts. I wanted to add some patterned Papers to my stamped Elements. But the colors from the Papers are not as bright as the stamped Images on the white Cardstock – I will not use any of the hearts. But look at the photo, I love how it looks

#4youarethe-flo3

I wanted to have something behind the elements, but don´t wanted to add Mixed Media. I wanted to have the stamped and splattered Images as the main focus and they should stand out from the rest. So I decided add some sewed lines with my sewing machine to the Foundation Paper; round about 2” of each color. I have done that to other projects before and I really love this effect!

#6youarethe-compl2

I used a lot of 3D squares to adhere all the bits and pieces down. I wanted to get sure that the Chipboard Letters will stay in place (because of all the thread on the Paper and the different dimensions) so I used Liquid Glue for them. I used the black Letters because I wanted to have something that will stand out from the ocean of bright colors and you´ll also find some black in the photo…

Together | Dimensional Wreath | Vicki Boutin

[werbung]
Hi and hello, welcome back, Jana here with a fun new layout to share. I love to create dimensional things on my Layouts and so I had a look into the Silhouette Store and grabbed a CutFile from a Wreath I really liked. Looked for some patterned Papers and let my Cameo cut aaaaallllll the leaves, and believe me, there was a lot of!

I limited myself to a few with the colors. I wanted to have it almost monochrome…
the Watercolors for the Background, the Wreath and the finishing Elements; all in green and blue tones.

This is what all of leaves looked before I started to create that layout.

I used my favorite Mixed Media Paper for my background, the Foundation paper! I added a LOT of water to it and “kissed” it with color on a piece of plastic.
I love how the paper is handling all the water without getting curled up or any kind of damage.

Look at this; it reminds me of a sky full of clouds or the ocean. I used my heat tool for drying but also grabbed a paper towel to soak up some of the extra colors in the corners.

Once everything was dry and ready to go I started with building the wreath on the background. This took me a while but totally worth the time. I glued the pieces together so that I was able to move it around as one big piece, without having to worry about it falling apart again.

The picture (I changed it a few times during the process) shows my hubby and my little one. I love this photo. But you can also see some of the stamped circles behind the wreath. Have not mentioned it yet, right?! I stamped with the Circle Stamp Set and the Watercolors some circles behind the wreath. I really love how that worked and looks!

On this point I was sure that my page was done! I´ve added Watercolor Stickers, fussy cut some of the Butterflies out (12×12 Paper – Social Butterfly), grabbed some Glitter Foam Hearts and the Word “my” , two pieces from the “All the good Things” Frame pack. Oh and I´ve added a lot splatters too.
But nope, I changed my mind – way too much this time – and added more details and more DIY Elements.

But now I am done and happy with it! Love the pinwheels… I added some of the Enamel Dots from Finishing Embellishments to the middle of each of them and look how pretty they are…

all kinds of awesome | vicki boutin

Hi there, Jana here with a new Layout and let me tell you one thing about it… I LOVE it!
I really love to mix Vicki´s Watercolors and the Acrylic Paints. I love how they looked mixed together and how easy it is to get a 12×12 sheet filled with a masterpiece 😉 I made the Background and was kinda proud of myself… ha-ha, no I am just kidding.
But let´s talk about my project for this week.

6#completehearts

I started with a 12×12 sheet of the Foundation Paper, grabbed three Acrylic Color Pop Colors, some Watercolors and started to have a looooot of fun! Seriously! I stopped thinking and added layer and layer of color, rolled the brush over the acrylic colors, added splatters and just went crazy here! I am totally happy when I can sit and create some awesome color heavy backgrounds. Have you seen my last layout with the circles? I started similar to this project, it´s so relaxing and satisfying – watch the colors running over the paper. Layer for layer of colors, mixing new shades and… oh so pretty!

1#backgroundwatercolors

From purple to light pink… in different shades. Look at it! I also “stamped” with a bubble wrap in the wet Acrylic Color and flipped it so that I stamped with purple in the other pink tones.

2#backgroundwatercolors

I wanted to create a page with lots and lots of hearts. Oh Yes! I used four different sized punches and started to bring the 12×12 sheet into hearts. I don´t wanted to mix the colors; I wanted to have them like I painted the paper. Look how pretty that looks!

3#backgroundhearts

Another sheet of the Foundation Paper was used for my background. I added four big black lines with a big brush and some black splatters. I wanted to create a big contrast to the other colors, that’s why I decided to go with black. I love how that worked. The hearts are really popping off the page. Right?!

4#backgroundhearts

I used my sewing machine with black thread to attach the bigger hearts to the Paper; Black thread for more contrast.  I used 3D squares for some of the smaller ones. Just for different dimensions.

5#backgroundhearts

The photo is showing me and my hubby, the newest photo from us, and because of the rare factor of a good picture I already scrapped that photo.  But next to the photo I only added three other things; one black foam word, a bird and the label next to the photo. That´s all!

Spring – Vicki Boutin

Hi and hello, Jana back again with a Layout for Vicki Boutin´s Mixed Media Makers!
I had some very (!!!!!!) busy weeks and so i totally forgot to post on my blog… if you want to see my latest VB Layouts please feel free to jump to Vicki´s Blog or my YouTube Channel to watch the latest projects… Thanks!

but let´s talk about todays project… i am in LOVE with it!
I started my background on the White Foundation Paper and Acrylic Color Pops (Set 1, 2 and 3). I wanted to create a spring layout and i wanted to create some circle „flowers“

I added the Acrylic Colors to the background paper and used a big brush for it. i added just a tiny bit to water on the brush, so that it was easier to spread the color around. I let them mix together and i love the colors so much together.

#1springbackground

I used two Art Crayons for matching splatters, mixed them together until i was happy with the colors. Oh and before i´ve done the splatters i grabbed my palette knife and added some white Gesso to the Acrylic colors. I don´t wanted to cut into this paper i just wanted to frame it and hang it on the wall 😉 i am deeply in love with it…

#3springbackground

#2springbackground

but, i was very brave and i cut it… i used the Circle Dies from the Stamp and Die set and some scallop circle punches from my stash

#4springcircles

I have five different sizes now but before i stitched them together i decided to add another layer of color to some of them. I grabbed some Bubble wrap for stamping and the Color Stamp Pads (1 & 2) and had fun!

#5springcircles

#6springbackground

I also made some circles out of Vellum and Tissue Paper… layered at least four of them together and added a lot of stitches with my sewing machine. I folded them up for more dimension and i also let the long thread ends on the circles. I really love the messy look of it.

#7springcircles

I wrote the word „spring“ with one of my brushlettering pens… used it as a stencil for this stitched title. I love how this looks – this kind of extra embellishments needs a lot of extra time but it is worth the work and time!

Here is my finsihed Layout! Because of the busy layered „flowers“ i decided to go with a small and kinda empty photo… i also colored the butterflies like the Circles. I used grey textured cardstock for my background and for more texture i added a thin layer of white acrylic color to it. lots and lots of splatters and yes, i am done! and in love!
