together forever | vicki boutin

Hi everyone, i have a new Layout to share. I started this Layout with a quote i found on Pinterest: together forver, never apart, maybe in distance, but never at heart.
I really like this one and so i have made my own stencil with it.
The picture for this project shows two of my boys and the kids from my sister, 14 yrs. ago… look how cute they are!

I added some texture paste through the stencil and once that was dry i grabbed some Art Crayons… i picked green and blue! I turned the photo into a black and white one because of all the colors on it; now i can work with every color i want! I also had a look into the Journaling {DieCuts} Pack for some things i wanted to use.

I added a lot of water to the background (Foundation Paper with Gesso) but also watered the Art Crayons down so that i can easily smudge them around with a piece of plastic. I love this „kissing“ technique! A brush were used for splattering and to dilute/apply the color on the paper.

Once that was all dry i decided to bring in some more color to the mix. I grabbed a darker blue Art Crayon, the big stencil brush and the heart stencil from the {ink spill} pack to add some hearts. I really like how the darker shade is looking. I already realized that it was very hard to read the text on the background and i started to think about a way to solve that problem… but first i worked on the layering around and under my photo.

There are some patterned papers behind my picture, but also some Journaling ephemera pieces. Because of the black & white photo i grabbed some watercolor stickers and placed them between and underneath the layers. I really like how this is looking. One of the patterned papers were used for fussy cutting; i love the matching tiny hearts!

Here you can see what i´ve made with the letters… i grabbed a Sketch Pen in black, outlined each of the letters and have regretted it immediately! I thought i have messed this page up and i could start again. I looked at it and maybe some white acrylic paint could help?! Yes!

I am so happy that i used the white acrylic paint on top of the letters. I like how it is looking now
