For this layout I used the monthly sketch which you will find here.
Orange is a favorite color for me, to use in vintage aswell as modern layouts.
This picture shows my daughter ready for travelling on the station.
The whole scene gave me a vintage feeling. I love that picture.
My starting point was the KEY paper (B-side).
I use mostly B-sides of papers, no intention, I just like them better ..
The sketch ( I turned it)
For the orange color I used beads
I colored the white daisies with the orange heart with paint and gesso.
Afterwards I felled sorry for this, because 1 week later my son married.
And what had the bride in her bouquet??? White daisies with a orange heart !
And my beautiful white ones are used....
The lamppost is grunged up with embossing , gesso and paint.
To mimic the brigthness where the lightsource comes from I used golden paint ,
over golden embossing
Second layout is also based on the June sketch.....
It was supposed to be masculine, since I used a photo from one of my sons.
But there is a difference for me between very masculine pictures for example in black and white.
This picture is in soft colors , so I did not overdo the masculine theme.
I started with the Sachet paper ( B-side) out of the Attic charm collection.
My favorit without a doubt..
Colored the background with pastels and water., but left the beautiful pattern to show through.
In the background there are a few soft flowers that I covered up with gesso and my photocluster.
With a black perlpen, I draw random figures.
Than with a mask some greyish/blue inking.
The chipboard is a frame piece , one of the clipboard set.
I cut it up, used one as my love you title and the rest here and there over the layout.
I made a mix from nutmeg and oatmeal powder.
The color gets less intensive because of the oatmeal.
Tip for summerlayouts: Oatmeal is super for beachthemes!
The titel is just inked up with black drawing ink
My last layout for today is also in green/orange Like the first one.
It just came out this way :)
Although the orange is not that obvious like the first layout.
The start of the layout was on the beautiful Generation paper (Yes, again the B-side).
Starting off with two colors orange ink. (offcourse first clear gesso )
Random heavy gesso, and than different shades of green embossing sprinkled over the background.
I have many many colors Blue Fern Studios embossing powder.
It is such a luxury to pick the colors out of the whole range.
Here I used verdant and Lime..
Than with a foliage stencil again heavy gesso.
The chipboard pieces I used are all embossed with pearl embossing powder.
Flourish, winter page dangle and title.
