Hello!! I am happy to be sharing a spread in my traveler’s notebook album using the gorgeous new Wildflower & Honey Collection by Vicki Boutin! The stamps caught my attention immediately and were the jumping off point for my pages!
I actually started the whole project with a 12×12 piece of white cardstock. I added gesso and let that dry and then added a mix of Vicki Boutin Silver Glaze & Matte Gel Medium through the pretty floral stencil. Once the glaze was dry I used a piece of packaging with the Blue Hawaiin Watercolor Brush to add puddles of paint over the glaze. The awesome thing about the glaze/medium is that it resists the watercolor so you can still see the glaze, I lightly buffed the glaze areas with a dry paper towel to remove any watercolor and bring back the shine!
After the paint layer dried I used the dry stencil brush with the deep teal Art Crayon and added a few details with the same stencil. I love having the light and darker tones of the same colors! Once my paper was all dry I decided to cut it into TN size pages. I stamped and die cut the big florals and leaves from the Wildflower & Honey stamp set. For a focal point I added some handstitching with embroidery floss to two of the big florals in the die cut pack.
On the left side of the spread I used the 6×4 favorites card from the cut-apart paper and a rectangle I cut from my large painted paper. I decided to make a flap from the favorites card and add my photo in the sleeve below. I simply folded a 1″ strip of paper in half and adhered it to both the card and photo. I used my typewriter to add journaling favorites that match with the 6 small photos below! The super sweet bee is from the Wildflower & Honey stamp set and adds the perfect touch. I popped on a little round tab from the Wildflower & Honey Cardstock sticker sheet for a handy way to indicate to lift up the card for more below!
For a final touch I added the best ever sticker to the floral page from the Wildflower & Honey sticker book. I encourage you to have a good play with your Vicki Boutin products and then turn the papers into whatever size works for you!!
