Hey everyone, Jana here with you today. I had a little break because of some health issues and I am so happy to finally craft again! It´s a real nightmare when you can´t do what you really love, right?!
Today’s project is inspired by the new Junque Journal August Prompts… Vicki made a new set of activities for the next four weeks and they are fabulous; It´s more of mixing and trying new things.
I grabbed all six of the first week’s prompts. Pastel Colors, tool – bubble wrap, flowers, in the middle, color blocking, kraft and rose gold.
My supplies for today, Foundation Paper, Art Crayons, Acrylic Paints, Bubble Wrap, a Kraft tag, some white clouds, fussy cut flowers and some bits and pieces from the Icons and Frames Pack. The photo for today’s layout shows a Zebra, from a trip my hubby and the boys did in July (I couldn´t join them, but they send me a lot of photos)
I started with mixing my Acrylic pop colors with white paint, because the colors should be pastel I needed to calm them down. I also mixed some Art Crayons with white acrylic paint, this works great!
Before I started this project I had a look in the pattern papers and fussy cut some of the flowers out from the “picked for you” Paper and so I knew what kind of colors I wanted to use.
I grabbed the bubble wrap and pressed it into the wet acrylic paint, flipped it over and stamped it in the middle of the Foundation Paper. I love how this is looking and the acrylic paint dries pretty quickly.
After that first layer was dry I decided to add some stencil brush work. I mixed some Art Crayons together and applied it through the stencil with the big stencil brush on top of the bubble wrap stamping. It´s a nice tone on tone detail and I really like it.
To finish that background I decided to add some rose gold splatters. I watered the glaze down just a tiny bit, so much easier to get some nice small splatters. Another nice detail in the mix
I centered all my elements in the middle from the page. The big Kraft tag is the base for everything; I placed the photo on top of it and added two clouds to it. The flowers and DieCuts were placed around it to create a nice balanced scene. My journaling was written on a yellow label from the Frames Pack and to complete this project I scattered some epoxy dots from the Finishing Embellishments Pack.
I really had fun with this Layout and I hope you´ll like it too
