my person | paige evans & silhouette

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

#verrücktersommer | Alexandra Renke

[werbung]
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
materialhj

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

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

gesso & watercolors | vicki boutin

[werbung]
Hi everyone, Jana here with you today. I have a new Layout to share. This page started with a picture. I was sorting through my photos and found two cute ones from my oldest son, when he was 5 or 6 years old. He was climbing in the trees, one of his favorite’s hobbies when he was little. I saw the picture and was thinking on a CutFile I have, a tree trunk. I immediately had to think about painting the tree trunk with gesso and watercolor/Art Crayons.

#7goodtimes-complete

Here you can see some of my Supplies for today; Perfect Gesso, Foundation Paper and Art Crayons. But I will also bring in some Watercolors, Junque Journal Mixed Media Paper and some stamps.

#1goodtimes-supplies

So, I started this page by cutting three of the tree trunk shape with my Cameo. I was not sure about layering or using different colors together. The white cut got a thick layer of Gesso. Irregular so it gets some texture right away. I also painted a Junque Journal Mixed Media Paper with Gesso because I wanted to try some Watercolors/Art Crayons on it.

#2gootimes-gesso

I decided to use five different brown tones for my painting. I grabbed a piece of plastic and added watercolors and art crayons to it, mixed with some water, ready to paint.

#3goodtimes-colors

But before I started I wanted to stamp or bring the colors on the Junque Journal Page. I just wanted to try and see how the colors are changing with more or less water. Sometimes this can be very helpful, especially if you are using the colors for the first time or on other backgrounds or materials as usual.

#4goodtimes-gessostamped

I really love how the colors are looking together and due to the different covering power, it looks alive and not flat. Now I knew how the colors are looking and was pretty sure that I wanted my tree trunk in these colors. I started with the outer area, in dark brown. Up to the inside I was getting brighter with the colors and used more water. But I have used several layers of color and at the end I have added splashes of paint. I am so happy how this turned out. I also loved the negative from the tree trunk so I wanted to use it too. I loosely cut around the shape and layered it under the original piece. Love how this is looking! I added some stitches with my sewing machine.

#5goodtimes-finished

I already knew in advance that I did not want to use much decoration next to the photo. I punched out some butterflies from various VB papers and a thin paper bag and sewed them together with the sewing machine. I wanted to have the tree trunk as my main focus on this Layout.

#6goodtimes-butterflies

I added two pieces from the Frames Pack to my picture and because I had no Idea what to add next I decided to punch out some leaves from one of the 7×10 Paper Pad. I put some of the leaves under the butterfly; the others are lying around on the paper almost loosely. My title is a mix from the Chipboard Alpha and the Foam Words…

#8goodtimes-complete

My final touch here, I adapted my journaling to the contours of the tree trunk.

#9goodtimes-complete

I really had fun here and I am totally happy about this layout.
