Happy Friday everyone! I had a great time on create and craft /ideal world in the UK! I even got to wander around London and get a glimpse of Westminster Abbey and Big Ben! What an amazing city!!
I’m back on a plane today- but i do have an absolutely amazing project to share with you today!! Steph Devlin brings us “color magic” at it’s finest! This gorgeous layout totally captures that sweet daughter of hers with just the right awe and wonder!!
AMAZING, right? I hope she plans to hang this one up on the wall!
Steph shares some background info & insight about her project …
I have been holding off scrapping this photo of Madison, because it is one of my faves of her, and when I opened my pack of 12×12 resist papers, I instantly feel in love with the patterns and gorgeous shiny resist effect they gave the papers. I knew straight away what I was going to do.
During the design process, it was important to show how beautiful the papers were, both altered and stand alone, hence the amount of white space in this layout. If you look closely you can see the stunning resist chevron pattern in the white paper that is not altered, and the chevron pattern appears so subtle yet such a strong design element of the page.
With the flowers, I die cut each and every flower, and sprayed them with Glimmermist and enhanced the color with pigment inks. You can see how the color just soaks into the resist, giving it such a bright vibrant feel and contrasting the original white. I used Pan Pastels for the large flowers which have blended colors applied on them, and again the chalks blend beautifully on the resist. I then just give them a quick coat of hairspray just to hold the chalks to the resist.
Thanks Steph!! Absolutely gorgeous!!
