Watercolor & Gesso | Vicki Boutin

[werbung]
Hi everyone, Jana here with a fun new Layout for you. I have these cute photos from my little one when he was having a great time with his aunt… she has made so many awesome faces and he was able to make them all too! That was hilarious… ha-ha, oh my! Please, look at him, isn´t he the cutest little monkey?!

#10note-complete

I started with a CutFile from Paige Evans (used it on different patterned Papers from Vicki´s “all the good things” Collection), a sheet of the white Foundation Paper and Gesso. I also used one of Vicki´s Stencils…

#1note-gesso

I added a thick layer of Gesso through the Stencil but also smudged some of the Gesso down on the Paper with a palette knife. I wanted to have a messy layer under the watercolors. I really love when the color runs over it, looks messy and awesome!

#2note-gesso

Since I already knew that I wanted to use watercolors I chose the colors after the paper stars. I’ve tested all the watercolors on paper and I should know what they look like, but somehow it turns out that I was wrong with the colors I used. But that was not a problem, I changed some things and it worked perfect.

#3note-gesso

Ok, now look at this!! It just looks awesome, right? I so love it when the watercolor runs over the paper… between the Gesso lines and over the bumpiness from the Paper… just LOVE it!

#4note-gesso-watercolor

Because I wanted to use some black papers I decided to add black watercolors in the blue mix. I have played with the colors, with more and less water just for different opacity from the colors. I also dabbed some of the colors off with a paper towel… I really like how this is looking and it´s giving so much depth to the mix.

#5note-gesso-watercolor

I used some of the big stars, the insides from the outlines and added some layers of tissue paper to the biggest one. I wanted to add the photos on that star but because of the dark color I needed to lighten it up, just a bit. I really love the black paper with the white script on it but there is already black on the background and I don´t wanted to have it to dark.

#6note-gesso-stars

I stitched the tissue paper on the big star and ruffled up the edges. I placed a black tag behind the photos and added the big word NOTE next to them. I limited my use of elements to just a few. The background is busy enough, right?

#7note-gesso-sneak

The typewriter was used for my Journaling and I decided to cut it to thin paper strips. I wanted to see the colors between the lines and I don´t wanted to have block of text… it gives some movement and added a nice look to it.

#8note-gesso-journaling

I added some blue Enamel Dots around the photos and stitched the journaling strips down to the paper. The last touches were the black foam hearts. I am totally happy with this project
