Hi everyone,  I have a new Layout to share. I started this Layout by cutting out the Hanging Flower Basket on white Cardstock, I resized the CutFile just a tiny bit; I made it a bit smaller.
I knew which photo I wanted to use, so I started to look into the patterned Papers I have and ended up with the 6×6 Paper Pad from Oh my Heart and the 12×12 Paper Pad from Pick me Up.

Because of the bright yellow in the picture I decided to fill the flowers in the basket with a yellow paper from the 12×12 Paper Pad and all of the leaves were filled with smaller papers from the 6×6 paper pad. I chose a gradient paper and filled the bottom leaves with the darkest color, and then it gets brighter and brighter towards the top. I really love how the photo looks in the basket; I also filled the basket with a very light pink paper.

I had a look into a Die Cut pack from Kaisercraft (Wildflower) and added some pink flowers to the basket and I really love how pink works with yellow and the green/blue tones here. To finish this page up I only added a few more things, one Die Cut from Pick Me Up and two sets of Alpha Stickers. The “Lemonade” Chipboard Thickers and the Foam Mini-Alpha “Happy Life

The last thing I’ve added here were some Heidi Swapp Color Shine splatters in gold. I really had fun and I really love how this layout turned out.

Junque Journal | Vicki Boutin

Hi there, Jana here with you today and i have some fun new Junque Journal Pages to share. I grabbed the August Prompts and worked on the second week; Bright and Bold Colors, Plastic Wrap, Numbers and white Gesso wash.

Here are my supplies for today: Watercolor Refills, Junque Journal, Watercolors, Acrylic Paints, Stencils, Big Stencil Brush, Gesso and some Die Cuts

#1jjaug-material

I decided to work with three different watercolors and three different acrylic paints. I wanted to mix them together so I looked for matching colors. I really love to mix and match different types of Medias. This gives you a nice look of different layers and different tones.

#2jjaug-colors

I primed all of my Watercolor Re-Fill Papers with a thin coat of the perfect Gesso, I wanted to add a lot of water and I just wanted to get sure that the paper will not curl up. I added watercolors to my first page and I also added water to the paper, that allows the colors to mix and blend and of course to move around… this gives nice mixes of the colors and a nice blended crossing between the colors.

#3jjaug-page1

I tried to stamp with the Plastic Wrap through one of the stencils, but I failed. Lesson learned. I grabbed some white gesso, the big stencil brush and a stencil instead and added a nice white image to the bright watercolors.

#4jjaug-page1

My first try was to add the colors to the paper in circular motion but this worked to not that good. I took some of the watercolors with it and it kinda mixed together and the gesso was not white anymore (You can see it on the following picture in the lower right corner). The second try was to just dab the gesso through the stencil and this worked perfect! I added some white gesso splatters to finish this background.

#5jjaug-page1

To finish this page I only added a few things, a black number, a label (with the Medias/Tools on it) and a brush lettering quote. I love how the black looks on the colors.

#6jjaug-page1

The second page was also made on a gesso primed watercolor paper. I tried the Plastic Wrap stamping with watercolors. I love this new technique. I have stamped with all kind of different things but never tried some plastic wrap; so much fun!

#7jjaug-page2

#8jjaug-page2

I used the same elements to finish this page.

#9jjaug-page2

For the third page I decided to stamp with acrylic paint and this gives you a totally different look then the watercolors. You can see more details from the plastic.

#10jjaug-page3

Before I finished this page I added some matching acrylic paint splatters, I love how this looks. You don´t need much stuff to create some very interesting pages, right? This page also got a black number, a label with used materials/tools and a quote. I am totally happy how all of the pages turned out. It´s nice to try some new things from time to time and the Junque Journal Prompts are always good for it!

Hey Zebra | Vicki Boutin

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.

#7zebra-complete

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)

#1zebra-supplies

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.

#2zebra-mixed

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.

#3zebra-bubbles

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.

#4zebra-brushbg

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

#5zebra-bgrose

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.

#6zebra-cluster

#8zebra-closeup

I really had fun with this Layout and I hope you´ll like it too

Hallo ihr lieben heute nur ein kleiner Beitrag zum #verrücktensommer von mir.
Ich liege seit Montag flach, mit einem fetten Kniegelenkerguss, ich war schon zum punktieren aber geholfen hat das nicht. Anstatt den Sommer mit meinen Jungs zu genießen bin ich nun erstmal krank 😦 Aber immer schön positiv bleiben, richtig?!
Deswegen gibt es heute eine sommerliche mixed media Seite mit verstecktem Journaling in Farben die mich an einen Cocktail erinnern oder zumindestens an ein paar Zutaten…

Mein Material heute

Bei dieser Seite habe ich das erste mal mit dem DecoFoil Stift und Folien sowie den Dylusions Paints gearbeitet, beides wirklich tolle Sachen…

stealing saturday with christine meyer

[werbung]
hi everyone, i have a new layout to share, this one is a scraplift from one of Christine Meyers pages for her new series on YouTube „stealing saturday“

I picked this page from her, i really like the flowers around the photos…

cmeyerlift

… and this is one of the things i grabbed from the layout, also the stitches around the page and the white in the background. I also added two photos and a flair button to my Layout.

undercoverhouse

My photos are from our house, who turns into a undercover house each year in the summer. it´s covered in green… we love it! but it´s pretty dark inside and we have a lot of bugs and spiders here…. eeeks!

Watercolor & Gesso | Vicki Boutin

[werbung]
Hi everyone, Jana here with a fun new Layout for you. I have these cute photos from my little one when he was having a great time with his aunt… she has made so many awesome faces and he was able to make them all too! That was hilarious… ha-ha, oh my! Please, look at him, isn´t he the cutest little monkey?!

#10note-complete

I started with a CutFile from Paige Evans (used it on different patterned Papers from Vicki´s “all the good things” Collection), a sheet of the white Foundation Paper and Gesso. I also used one of Vicki´s Stencils…

#1note-gesso

I added a thick layer of Gesso through the Stencil but also smudged some of the Gesso down on the Paper with a palette knife. I wanted to have a messy layer under the watercolors. I really love when the color runs over it, looks messy and awesome!

#2note-gesso

Since I already knew that I wanted to use watercolors I chose the colors after the paper stars. I’ve tested all the watercolors on paper and I should know what they look like, but somehow it turns out that I was wrong with the colors I used. But that was not a problem, I changed some things and it worked perfect.

#3note-gesso

Ok, now look at this!! It just looks awesome, right? I so love it when the watercolor runs over the paper… between the Gesso lines and over the bumpiness from the Paper… just LOVE it!

#4note-gesso-watercolor

Because I wanted to use some black papers I decided to add black watercolors in the blue mix. I have played with the colors, with more and less water just for different opacity from the colors. I also dabbed some of the colors off with a paper towel… I really like how this is looking and it´s giving so much depth to the mix.

#5note-gesso-watercolor

I used some of the big stars, the insides from the outlines and added some layers of tissue paper to the biggest one. I wanted to add the photos on that star but because of the dark color I needed to lighten it up, just a bit. I really love the black paper with the white script on it but there is already black on the background and I don´t wanted to have it to dark.

#6note-gesso-stars

I stitched the tissue paper on the big star and ruffled up the edges. I placed a black tag behind the photos and added the big word NOTE next to them. I limited my use of elements to just a few. The background is busy enough, right?

#7note-gesso-sneak

The typewriter was used for my Journaling and I decided to cut it to thin paper strips. I wanted to see the colors between the lines and I don´t wanted to have block of text… it gives some movement and added a nice look to it.

#8note-gesso-journaling

I added some blue Enamel Dots around the photos and stitched the journaling strips down to the paper. The last touches were the black foam hearts. I am totally happy with this project

Junque Journal Summer School | Vicki Boutin

Hi there, Jana here with three more pages for my Summer School Junque Journal. I swatched all the colors last week, and this week I focused on the Art Crayons – all three Sets, for sure!

#5cool-jjinside

#9neutral-warm-jjinside

I started with the Cool Set from the Art Crayons; I think it is the favorite Set from me… I love the bright blue and green tones.  I grabbed the Watercolor re-fill Papers and started with a layer of white Gesso. I used a pallet knife for it and it is textured layer. I was not looking for perfect and thin; otherwise I had used my brayer for it. Oh no, wait… I started with stamping; the Circle Stamps and Dies with black Ink on white Cardstock. I used the biggest stamps and the middle sized die, so that I will still have a circle on the Cardstock, the outlines from it.

#1cool-background1

I used the “kissing” technique, mixed with splatters and brush work. I love how the different colors are matching and mixing! The background is already done and you can see my perfect new Art Crayons holder and the stamped circles… I am in LOVE!

#2cool-background2

I wanted to add some different textures, some dimension and a messy look. The negative from the stamps are my elements here. I added some wonky messy looking scribbled circles, some black thread and some machine stitching. I also grabbed a brush and the same colors I added before to blend the white cardstock into the background, I really love this effect. The last thing I added here was the heat embossed word “cool” – I used an embossing Ink Pen for writing and a blue embossing powder. Looks cool, right?!

#3cool-compl

I am totally happy and satisfied with this result!

#4cool-compl2

The Neutral Art Crayons were used for my second page. I also used some stamped circles and messy stitching. The background was also made with the “kissing” technique, the same paper was used – but without Gesso/Gel on it. I used the same black pen (Silhouette Sketch Pen) for the scribbled lines, or in this case, flower stems and leaves.

#6neutral-back

I added stitching with my sewing machine, used golden thread for the flower details. I really love to use my sewing machine for details like this; It´s giving some texture and a great look.

#7neutral-back2

What is a flower without a Butterfly?! I grabbed some Butterfly Stamps and black Ink and added some butterflies over the flowers. The last thing I have added here was also an embossed title; this time in gold. I really love the embossing pen!!

#8neutral-compl

For the warm Set I wanted to create a heart background. I always have some self-made/Silhouette stencils on my desk; this one I grabbed and used is from Paige Evans.  I am working on the Mixed Media Paper again and I don´t have Gesso on it. I placed the big stencil over the paper and started to fill the inside with Art Crayons and the big stencil brush.

#10warm-back1

This is a great technique when you want to add some soft colors to your paper. I added two layers of the Crayons and on the second turn the brush was a bit wet and so the colors turned out more vibrant and darker. I love it!

#11warm-back2

I wanted to add some liquid Art Crayons, like I did on the last two pages. Mixed with water on a piece of plastic and because of that (the water) I added a thin layer of the Matte Acrylic Gel with my brayer. I wanted to have the brush-stencil-work to be crisp and clear and not smudged with the other colors…

#12warm-back3

I also added some messy stitching to this page. I filled some of the hearts or stitched around it. I used four different colors here and I really like how it looks.

#13warm-back4

The last things I added here are some messy looking circles; added with the Vicki Boutin Markers in the same colors like the Art Crayons and the word “warm”

#14warm-compl

#15warm-compl2

I also have a little Process Video for you to watch – https://youtu.be/kLnq3O72IZk

You are the cutest

[werbung]
Hello, Jana back again with you. I have a new fun Layout to share.
Sometimes a Project comes together on detours, right?! This happened on this Layout.
I started with stamping some circles; I just wanted to do some color swatches. But I had so much fun stamping with the bright colors (Color Stamp Pads Set2) that I grabbed many more and went totally crazy.

#5youarethe-compl1

As you can see I also went fussy cutting crazy, haha! This Layout really took me some time. I stamped for a while, I fussy cut for a while, I organized all the elements for a while, I glued everything down for a while… oh and I also stitched like crazy for a while! But despite the whole work, I had a lot of fun.

I stamped with three Sets and six colors (Color Stamp Pads Set2)… and yes, there is yellow and orange on this Layout. When you know me and my Projects then you may have noticed that these are not my first color choices. But today I wanted to create a bright Layout and the six colors are working so great together; I just didn´t want to separate them!

#1youarethe-flo1

I grabbed some Art Crayons (Warm Set) for matching tiny color splatters. I really love how this looks, is giving the final touches.

#2youarethe-flo2

Then I grabbed my tablet, watched some scrapbooking process videos and started to cut out all of the stamped images. This was very relaxing.

#3youarethe-flo2

Once I was ready I grabbed the 6×8 and the 12×12 Paper Pad from the “All the Good Things” Collection to punch out some matching hearts. I wanted to add some patterned Papers to my stamped Elements. But the colors from the Papers are not as bright as the stamped Images on the white Cardstock – I will not use any of the hearts. But look at the photo, I love how it looks

#4youarethe-flo3

I wanted to have something behind the elements, but don´t wanted to add Mixed Media. I wanted to have the stamped and splattered Images as the main focus and they should stand out from the rest. So I decided add some sewed lines with my sewing machine to the Foundation Paper; round about 2” of each color. I have done that to other projects before and I really love this effect!

#6youarethe-compl2

I used a lot of 3D squares to adhere all the bits and pieces down. I wanted to get sure that the Chipboard Letters will stay in place (because of all the thread on the Paper and the different dimensions) so I used Liquid Glue for them. I used the black Letters because I wanted to have something that will stand out from the ocean of bright colors and you´ll also find some black in the photo…

#7youarethe-compl3

I also have a process video for you to watch. https://youtu.be/xDGi1_TXRek
