Today I'm sharing a layout for the Vicki Boutin design team, featuring Vicki's fabulous mixed media products, and the ‘All the Good Things’ collection! I got to have a play with a couple of Vicki’s new products that she released at Creativation recently, and I LOVE them! Here’s the layout that I created…
For this layout I wanted to create a mixed media background so that I could cut a large title out of it using my Cameo. I had a play with the VB art crayons, the acrylic paints, and one of Vicki’s new stencils, to create the background. Here’s a peek at my work in progress, before I cut the title out of it…
And here’s a look at the title that I cut from that background. I added some small pieces of foam tape underneath it to give it some extra dimension, and then I completed the title using one of the black foam word Thickers from the collection.
Next I wanted to create a fun background using Vicki’s new stamp set. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set – the circles are so fun!! I decided to play with the pigment inks (color wheel) in the warm tones to contrast with the cool colours that I had used for my title. I chose the red ink, and two different shades yellow to stamp the circles onto my background, and I love how this turned out! Once I had finished my stamping, I trimmed down my cardstock background and mounted it on the reverse side of the Soul Food patterned paper. Then I added a strip of the Shine Brightly (reverse side) patterned paper across the middle of the layout, which provided a base for my photo and title.
I used the Pretty Words (reverse side) patterned paper, as well as a frame from the die-cut frames pack, to add some layers behind my photo. This helped it really pop off the page! I also added one of the cute paper clips from the collection to the top right hand corner of the photo, and I tucked a tab from the sticker sheet underneath the right hand side of the photo.
Underneath the left hand side of the photo I tucked some leaves from the die-cut icons pack. There are so many gorgeous embellishments in this pack!
To finish the layout off I sprinkled some of the cute enamel dots around the page, and I added a few little stickers from both the watercolour sticker pack and the word stickers.
Thanks so much for joining me today! I’ll have a process video for this layout up on my YouTube channel very soon, so stay tuned! And make sure you keep your eye out for Vicki’s fabulous new products!
