adventure | Vicki Boutin


Hi everyone, i have a fun new Layout to share.
Last weekend was the big fair, creativation … where you there? Have you meet Vicki? I am from Germany, i was not there… I only saw pictures and videos and I’m really excited about the new collection from Vicki, Color Koleidoscope!
But let´s talk about my project; i started this one with some hearts and some handstitching.
This is my third try for this page, i failed so big at the first times but; never give up! you can make it!


I had a look into all of the patterned papers from the „Field Notes“ Collection and decided to go with green and peach/pink tones. I also grabbed some matching DieCuts from the Ephemera and the Journaling Pack. I really love how this is looking so far.


I used one of the {ink spill} stencils and Gesso for my background. I wanted to have some messy bumpy texture on it… i accidentally dropped the Gesso pot in the wet Gesso on the paper and it left a messy circle stamped image! And i really liked it, so i went ahead and stamped some more messy Gesso circles on to the Foundation Paper. I also added some big splatters to it and i am SO in love with how it turned out! It took some time to dry…


I wanted to have the paper layers really pop off from the page and so i grabbed the black Watercolor and worked on my background. I used a lot of water and a few layers of the black.
I love how messy this is looking! The more water i added so more the black turned into a grey – because of that i added some dark splatters at the end!


Look how awesome this is looking! I know black is not usable for everyone, but i like it! It totally helps to let the colors really pop!
Once everything was dry i placed my stacks of paper back to the background. I used some staples to hold the papers together and some hot glue to get them on the textured background. This is also giving some extra dimension and i am still able to curl up the edges, if i want to!


I really love how this is looking! The cute picture shows my middle one… he just had some chocolate and his tiny face is smeared with it, so adorable!


Here you can see how the black is working against the colors. It´s giving some shadow and it helps to let the other colors stand out. I hope you´ll try some black on your next project?!
