Hi everyone, Jana back again and i am so happy that fall has finally arrived here in germany. It is my favorite season and i want to share my first fall inspired layout with you.
The Vicki Boutin Design Team will start a week full of seasonal projects for you and i am the first one to share mine... i really love the falling leaves and when they turn the colors! i love fall!
The pictures shows my little one sitting on/next to some really big mushrooms we found in the garden next door.
The colors from the picture inspired me so much that i wanted to create my own fall leaves for this project. I started with diecutting (i found some fall leave dies in my stash) on the Re-Fill Watercolor Papers and the Kraft Papers (for the Junque Journal)
I grabbed the Vicki Boutin Watercolor Set and picked the matching colors to paint my leaves with. I also used a 12x12 Plastic Sheet to work on. I added some tiny dots from the watercolors to the plastic and watered them down. I painted the leaves but also pressed the leaves into the colors. They turned out great!
I decided to add some extra sparkling details to them. I grabbed the Heidi Swapp Toner Mist and splattered it over my leaves, after everthing was dry i added the foil to it. Look how pretty they are!
I used the leftover kraft paper as a stencil for my Background, i used Gesso for that. I grabbed the leftover watercolors on the plastic sheet for the colors on the background. I decided to add just a hint of color, i added a lot of water and also used a papertowel to dab some of the color/water off. I really love the faded out look.
I handstitched my title on a patterned Paper from the Field Notes Collection, i really love the soft colors. I really love how this Layout turned out. It is screaming fall, right?!
Some watercolor stickers were added and colored like the background. I used a lot of 3D dots and foam tape under the elemenst. It´s the easiest way to get a lot of dimension to the page and it also gives a "nature" feeling to the leaves.
I also have a Process Video for you to watch, enjoy!
