I am so excited that I get to share a scrapbooking page that I worked on for an article called "passport to creativity" for Canadian Scrapbooker! I was chosen along side 2 other fantastic artists from BC to create 3 different layouts for their publication.
There is also some fun questions/answers in there too. It is on magazine stands now.
This layout in particular I really loved....It is of my son in the "Pumpkin Patch" at Grandma and Grandpas' house.
I used a few stamps to create my layout. The background is an awesome scrapblock that I reach for quite often called "vintage text" from Cornish Heritage Farms. I also used the calendar block scrapblock to indicate the month. There is a close shot of that if you scroll down.
The colors on the chipboard from basic grey were not quite right so I went over them with my copic marker.
MY FAVORITE part of this layout? First of all I printed this photo of my son in black and white then I took my waterbrush filled with Copic blender solution and painted my leaves using the palette technique to match my paper and the mood that I wanted to create. I love that my son stands out because he is still in black and white but I could add multiple colors in the leaves behind him. Way cool technique that you have to try!
Here is a close shot of the calendar block stamp and just some simple handwriting with my multiliner pen.
Hope you are enjoying your day....I have another fun layout to share with you too....soon!
