Hello! Lorilei here today sharing a layout I made using our Moodboard this week as inspiration! My attention was captured by the bright paint splatters and the pretty photo of the flowers; I love the whole mood board actually! You can find the moodboard on Vicki’s blog!
I chose a photo I took outside on our lane a few years ago and used the blues, golds and pinks as my jumping-off point for colour!
I have wanted to try the pre-made mixed paper pad, so I started by looking through the paper pad for the perfect background. I chose the paper with the four vertical paint, “swipes.” The yellow in the paper didn’t suit my idea, so I swiped some gesso over the yellow with a palette knife and let that dry. I then added a diluted wash of Blue Hawaiin Watercolor Marker over the gesso area and also added some washes of Art Crayon to enhance the washes already on the paper for my colour choices. It worked well to change the one colour and add some extra splatters and colour!
While the background was drying I fussy cut some of the gorgeous vellum butterflies from the Wildflower & Honey specialty paper. I chose the blue, red/pink and orange butterflies to add to the layout! For a nice focal point beside my photo, I found this pretty kraft tag with the perfect pink shade on it. I popped up the teal heart on the tag and added a chipboard sentiment. You can find the tag and chipboard from Wildflower & Honey.
I added foam dots to the butterflies for the lovely dimension! The gold foil detail on the butterflies is stunning!
I love how my page turned out! I encourage you to be inspired by the mood board and see what you come up with! I also recommend playing with the pre-made mixed media paper pad, it’s amazing!!
Thank you so much for stopping in today!
