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.

vb-foreverjana-11419 (2)

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.

vb-foreverjana-11419 (3)

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!

vb-foreverjana-11419 (5)

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!

vb-foreverjana-11419 (6)

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

[werbung]
hi everyone, i have a new layout… i made this just for fun and i love how it turned out!
i used some awesome Alexandra Renke papers and a cute Die. I fussy cut some of the designs out and used them as my elements on my page. The background was made with a cutfile from Paige Evans and a lot of colors… Magicals from Lindy´s and a ShimmerzPaints Vibez.

Love the cutfile and i really like how the hearts are looking with the dots on the right and the white on the left. I was thinking about a colored paper for the open spots but because of all the other colors i decided to go with white.

Joy, Hope & Love | Paige Evans

Hi everyone, I have my final Layout for the Paige Evans & Silhouette Team to share. I started this one with the scalloped Christmas tree, I just re-sized it and made it a bit smaller, and white Cardstock. I knew I wanted to use the patterned Paper with all the colorful stripes on it (Whimsical Paper No.16) for the open spots from the CutFile. My idea was to create a colorful Christmas tree with tone on tone elements.

wonderfulchristmas-jana1

It took some time to back all of the open spots on the tree, but it was totally worth the time! I love how it turned out; a bright and happy Christmas tree. I also wanted to add some mixed media to my white cardstock and so I looked into my Shimmerz Paints and grabbed all of the matching colors and started to create the same order of colors like I have on my tree. Some gold splatters were added for the Christmas bling!

wonderfulchristmas-jana2

Once that was dry I started to look in the Whimsical ephemera DieCuts and all of the Stickers. I grabbed some Puffy Stickers, some Chipboard Stickers and some Paper DieCuts. But I also fussy cut out a word from the 2×2 Paper Pad. I also used some stickers from the Sticker Book; they are perfect for the final touches! I tried to use color on color and this is so much fun.

wonderfulchristmas-jana3

The Mini Foam Alphas were used for some words and my title; I placed them also by color on top of the tree.  Rub Ons were placed on the picture itself and the last thing I have added was one of the big Tassel Paper Clips and a paper strip on the right side from the white cardstock.

you rock | Paige Evans & Silhouette

[werbung]

Hi everyone, i am back again and I have new Layout to share. I made this Layout about my hubby, who plays the bass/guitar in a band, and he rocks my life. So I grabbed the Guitar CutFile from Paige and started by cutting it out on white cardstock and a soft pink paper (Paper No.17) from her newest collection “Whimsical”

yourock-jana1

I also wanted to bring in a lot of flowers (Floral Die Cuts) and layering. Flowers are a sign for love and happiness, right?! I balanced nearly all of the flowers on the left side from the Layout. I placed two pictures (duplicated the same) from my hubby on top of the guitar and the flowers. I wanted to have some of the flowers peeking out from one photo but also wanted to add a lot of dimension here.

yourock-jana2

But before I glued everything to the paper I wanted to bring in some colors too. I grabbed some matching Shimmerz Paints colors and played with them until I was totally happy. I also wanted to use some Rub-Ons around everything, just for more interest; so I added some stars and words next to the flowers. I really love how easy they rub on the paper…

yourock-jana3

I used the Mini Foam Alphas for my title, which I placed on the right side from the guitar. Really love how this looks. The last things I’ve added to this page were some Stickers from the little Sticker book; some hearts and stars.

1st day of school | paige evans

Hi everyone, Jana here with you. I have a fun new layout to share. Our little one started 3rd grade in the summer and I have never ever scrapped a picture from his first day of school! What?! So, today was the day and I started this project with the spooky star background CutFile from Paige.

The new “Whimsical” Collection is full of creative things and it is perfect for school pictures. I decided to go with a white cut for the stars, because I wanted to use a patterned paper (No#15) as my background and I wanted to use a lot of colorful elements. I also decided to add some vellum to some of the stars. This looks so cool and the background is shining through. I always love to use vellum on my layouts.

1stdayofschool-jana1

I added a thin layer of white acrylic paint to the patterned paper because I also wanted to add some mixed media to it. I used greens and blues with a touch of yellow here and there. After I stitched some of the stars down I placed the picture on top of them and started to build my layering around it. The stitching gives a fun texture!

1stdayofschool-jana2

I used a lot of school themed images from the Chipboard Stickers, Sticker Book  and ephemera pieces, like a set of notebooks, some brushes, a scissors and a set of watercolors; but also added some fussy cut details from patterned papers. I tried to do some color on color with the little titles on the stars and the elements around it.

1stdayofschool-jana3

This was a really fun project and I totally love how it turned out. The new collection is just awesome and the colors are beautiful!

süsse weihnachten | alexandra renke

[werbung]
hi everyone, i have a fun new layout to share. I used some awesome Design Papers from Alexandra Renke for this project, but not only papers (1 & 2), also a fun stencil, a word Die and some sequins.

suesseweihnachten1-jana

This color combination is not my usual style, but i am totally in love! The pink mixed with red and mint. I have never thought of using them together, but this kinda happened by itself. Sometimes you need to be brave and try new things, right?!

suesseweihnachten2-jana

I glued four word pieces together and also heat embossed it with a bright red. this is so much fun!

be thankful | vicki boutin

Hi everyone, Jana here again and i have a new layout to share. We´re starting to create some Thanksgiving inspired projects for you and i will start.
I am fighting a cold at the moment and i am spending a lot of time in my bed… but i did some brushlettering with Vickis watercolors and this turned out so great that i was totally inspired to use these colors for my next layout. Not the typical fall colors, but i love how it turned out.

vb-thankfuljana-11122018 (1)

This is the little phrase i wrote and i am thankful for my life. My kiddos and my hubby… i am thankful even when we have to deal with some serious stuff, but that is life, right?
I had to think about this project for a while but once the idea popped into my head, everything worked perfectly! I used the same colors for a lot of stamped and painted leaves.

vb-thankfuljana-11122018 (2)

I started with pink, purple and blue. I mixed the three colors together to get some new/different shades. I splattered over all the leaves to get some more different looks. Once all of the leaves were done i started to seperate them into four color parts. I wanted to use four photos and i also wanted to add the leaves to each of them.

vb-thankfuljana-11122018 (3)

The photos are showing my family, my hubby and my three boys. I really love how the black/white photos are popping off the page. I grabbed a sheet of the Foundations Paper and added some stitched lines with my sewing machine. I wanted to have a visual border between each color section and that is why i added the white stitching on 6″. Now i have four 6×6 squares to fill.

vb-thankfuljana-11122018 (4)

The Journaling pieces were used for some layering behind the photos. I wanted to use a lot of layered leaves and so i only added one paper behind each photo. I used foam tape for more dimension. Once i was happy with the layering and the details i glued everything down. My journaling is running around the background paper. It´s also a visual border around everything.

vb-thankfuljana-11122018 (5)

Some Chipboard stickers were placed on top or next to each photo, the black and white leaves from the watercolor stickers and matching enamel dots to finish this page. I really love how this one turned out.
