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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
