Hello there! Nathalie with you today, to share with you an idea on reinventing a layout. I had worked a page for today's post a few weeks ago, and as soon as i finished the page, I totally was disappointed with the look of it. So, right away, i remember Vicki's words about the small investment a piece of cardstock can be, especially when you are trying to create a keepsake for the future. and decided to rework the background.
The idea for this page was to combine stamping and watercolor to create the background for this page. Since I had the pictures and embellishments already set from the previous page, I used the picture formation to guide ny background. First i added a thin coat of diluted yellow art crayon with a brayer; once it dried, i used black pigment ink to stamp all the labels in the background.
Next, I added some orange, teal and blue water-downed art crayon so to create a very organic watercolor look. Once it dried, i used the new stencil circles from the Ink Spill stencil to add some stenciled texture to the background using iridiscent glaze and white art crayon.
Now it was time to add the pictures and embellish the page using the new Field Notes collection. I chose papers that would complement those of the clothing in the picture, and added then as layers behind the picture. Then added a dew stickers and die cuts to the corners of the pictures.
The title of this page comes from the beautiful puffy stickers from the Field Notes. After adding a few lines of journal, i went ahead and used a bit of diluted gesso to add a bit of white messy droplets to the page.
I hope this inspires you a bit! Sometimes it is worth it to rework a page so that it really becomes something you truly love, especially if using VIcki's Products. Remember to check the new FIeld Notes collection, it truly is gorgeous, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions on how this turned out!
