hello there beautiful | vicki boutin

Hi there, i am back again and I have a fun new layout to share. I have a thing for layered paper pieces and so I decided to go with a wonky and messy square today. The colors in the Field Notes Collection are awesome, I am scrapping a picture from my hubby today, but I grabbed the soft pinks and yellows. I really don´t mind to scrap my boy photos with girly stuff.

#9hellothere

I started this Layout with a gessoed sheet of the Foundation paper, Stencils, Iridescent Glaze and the Art Crayons. I guess you already know that these little Crayons are my favorite things to play with… did you know that you can mix them with the different glazes?

#1hellothere

With that said, I scribbled some of the black Art Crayon on a piece of plastic and added Iridescent Glaze to it. Then I used the pallet knife to mix them together. You´ll get a beautiful shade of grey with a lot of shimmer in it. Just beautiful!

#2hellothere

I grabbed three different Stencils, from the new Release, and started to add the Iridescent grey on the Paper. I used my pallet knife for it. I started with some circles in one corner, some hearts and some flowers were added too. I let enough space between the shapes because I knew I wanted to color the foundation paper around them too.

#3hellothere

#4hellothere

Once everything was dry I grabbed some more Art Crayons and some flowers from the Icon pack as my color guide. So I started to mix the Art Crayons together until I was happy with the shades I created.

#5hellothere

I added a lot of water around the dried glaze and started to bring the Art Crayons pigment into it. I added a few layers of the colors, because I wanted to have a messy watercolor look. You´ll get that look/effect when you let each layer dry completely. I played with the water and the Art Crayons… until I was totally happy.

#6hellothere

Then I went ahead and used a square paper as a template. I cut the paper I created in wonky triangles and added some of the patterned papers from the 12×12 Paper pad too. I really love how this turned out, and yes, they are wonky and not straight, but that was exactly the look I wanted. I also added four layers of tissue paper to each of the triangles and stitched them together.

#7hellothere

Once I was done with the stitching part I started to look to other embellishments I wanted to use. I grabbed some flowers, butterflies and stickers. But I also stamped some leaves on some matching patterned papers. Fussy cut them out and added them to the mix of elements. I really love this tone on tone thing. You can never go wrong with that.

#8hellothere

I laid everything on another sheet of the foundation paper and after I was totally sure about the placement I started to glue the things down. I used some 3D dots for more dimension and I also ruffled up the edges from the messy triangles and flowers/leaves; just because I love the look of it.

#10hellothere

I stapled some last chipboard stickers on the photo and placed my title on top of everything. I love how the black word pops off the page.

#11hellothere

I hope you enjoyed this little how to and I hope even more that you´ll will get creative today too!
There is a process video up on my YouTube channel as well, have fun watching it.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a great day

be a little crazy | vicki boutin

Hi everyone, Jana back again and I have another Field Notes layout to share. I enjoy working with this collection so much. Everything works so well together and it is so easy to create some magic with this line. The photo for this project shows me and my little one. We just had fun with some selfies and I think this one was four years ago. I love this silly monkey so much

#8behappy

I started this project with a lot of fussy cutting. I grabbed the 12×12 patterned papers “Choose to shine”, “Among the Wildflowers” and “Take Flight” and started to cut out a lot of the flowers, leaves and butterflies. I also grabbed “Daydreamer” to create some simple leaves from the bright green; I added some stitching details to them. A few Die Cuts were added to the mix too.

#1behappy

I knew that I wanted to split the paper visually. That’s why I have provided the lower part with black stripes. I used the black watercolor for it. I added a bit of the color to a piece of plastic and added water to it. I am working on the white Foundation Paper and have not used any gesso for it. I would have done that when I have used more water.

#2behappy

For the upper part of the paper, I wanted to have something tender. So I decided to use the Art Crayons and a stencil. I took the green from the leaves and added a few delicate circles. The template is from the set {ink spill} – one of my favorites from the new release.

#3behappy

I used the big stencil brush for this. It is so easy and what I love the most. You can customize your colors so easy with the Art Crayons, just mix them together on some plastic and load the brush with it; with circular movements, you pick up the pigments and can put them on paper for the same way, very simple but so effective! I also added a few splatters in the same colors, just for more interest.

#4behappy

Once I was happy with my background I started to lay down all of the flowers and leaves. The big Die Cut piece “be happy” is my title. I really love this pieces with Vicki´s own handwriting. All of the pieces were adhered down with some foam tape, for more dimension and interest. I curled up the edges from the leaves because of the natural look and feel from leaves.

#5behappy

Then I went ahead and added the butterflies to the mix. I love how that is looking and you can never go wrong with butterflies and flowers, right?

#6behappy

Because of the black stripes in the lower part I decided to add some black hearts to the upper part too. I grabbed some black and white watercolor stickers too. The last thing I’ve added was the word Smile and a Chipboard sticker. I really love this mix of fonts and words here.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and don´t forget to grab yourself some “Field Notes” goodies and have some fun.

Be your own Light | Vicki Boutin

Hey everyone, i have a new Layout to share. Field Notes is giving me so much new ideas and I see inspiration in each single piece. The idea for this layout came with a quote and a little story someone told me. Sometimes you need to be your own light and you need to focus on your own way… and sometimes I need that reminder, I can´t blame anyone else if something does not work or when I did not try the new way… so yeah, long story short, this is my reminder page for myself.

#9light

I started this project with stamping and heat embossing. I grabbed the big butterfly (or is it a moth?) stamp, some gold embossing powder and vellum. I also grabbed my We R HappyJig tool to create the word “light” – that was not easy; the letter T was driving me crazy!

#1alight

The watercolor stickers and the colored vellum stickers are one of my favorite pieces, the colors are gorgeous. I knew I wanted to use some of the vellum stickers and they inspired me to create a rainbow on the background paper… Art Crayons are the best and easiest way for some magic!

#1light

I grabbed a 12×12 sheet from the Foundation paper, a piece of plastic, a brush, water and the art crayons and started with my rainbow. I scribbled some art crayon on the piece of plastic, added some water and kissed the color on the paper. Just some small spots with color and splatters. I mixed the art crayons together and this is totally therapeutic for me, so relaxing and it makes me happy.

#2light

I don’t want to have hard lines between the colors so I let them mixed together and this is giving you some new shades and different coverage on the paper. The matching splatters are just the perfect finishing touches here.

#3light

Now that the background is ready to go I started to embellish everything. The photo is showing me with some cute glasses one. I placed the photo next to green and blue colors, just because of the color from the glasses. The butterflies were placed all over the page and a few from them got a small thread nest, just for more interest and texture. I also colored two watercolor stickers and placed them between the butterflies. Some of the vellum stickers were added to the matching colors on the paper.  I also grabbed two pieces from the “Field Notes” Icon pack and added them to mix.

#4light

#5light

The word “light” is a part from my title and was attached to the paper with some staples. I completed the title with some small black alpha stickers and to finish this layout I grabbed a lot of matching enamel dots from my stash. I can´t get enough from tone on tone details.

#6light

#7light

I really love how this Layout turned out. The Art Crayons in the background mixed and blended together so well… the colors are beautiful and the new Collection is a big inspiration source

jana-halloween1

Es gab tolle neue Herbst– und Halloween Papiere, süße kleine Dies und da wir jedes Jahr eine Halloween Party schmeißen habe ich genug Bilder zum verscrappen. Ich habe heute aber auch noch eine kleine süße Box, als Einladung zu der nächsten Party… dabei geholfen hat mir mein jüngster Sohn.

jana-halloween2

Ich verfalle immer in einen richtigen Deko Hype wenn ich Themen-Parties mache. Unser Haus glich letztes Jahr einem Spukhaus vom Rummel, überall Spinnennetzte, Kürbisse, Kerzen und Flaschen (mit Wachs verziert), Grabsteine, Skelette, Fledermäuse, Steine und natürlich auch schwarze Tücher/Folien vor den Fenstern… die Kinder freue sich jedes mal richtig doll! Essen ist ebenfalls immer spektakulär 😉

jana-halloween3

Ich habe auf meinem YouTube Channel ein Video für dieses Layout – KLICK!

Nun zu unseren kleinen Einladungs-Boxen, die Anleitung ist von Kerstin Müller und ich habe sie aus dünnem Plastik gemacht. Etwas frickelig und nicht ganz so leicht zu falzen, aber es hat geklappt… seht selbst.

Mein Sohn hat die Zombies gemalt, sind die nicht klasse?! Die Kürbisse, Spinnen und Fledermäuse sind einfach genial, die haben eine süße Größe und könnten ebenfalls gut als Konfetti oder Streudeko auf dem Tisch dienen.
