Beautiful Day

 

Today, I’d like to share my take on Tres Jolie’s January Mood Board using the latest Scrapbook Kit, filled with the Walk in the Clouds collection from Paper Heaven, and a gorgeous array of coordinating flowers and chipboard pieces. Here’s what I came up with…


And here’s the Mood Board that inspired it…


The “B” side of Sheet 4 makes a perfect background for my image: a photo taken by my brother a few years ago of Kent’s Point in Cape Cod.


I wanted to add some stenciled images, so I began by backing the paper with a piece of cardboard that I had trimmed to 11.5” x 11.5. (I like to use Scor-Tape for this; it’s a very strong adhesive that will create a permanent bond.)


I used crackle paste and a stencil from my stash to create snowflakes in random spots.


While this was drying, I took out one of the chipboard borders and primed it with several coats of white gesso before covering it with Unicorn Effect Paste to give it an icy look.

I matted my photo with a piece of corrugated cardstock from a DCWV stack that I’ve had for years. To make it look “not flat”, I tore it here and there and then layered the pieces with the torn edges showing.

I’ve been hoarding a Prima vine since March; I cut off a few sections and treated it with white gesso to soften the color. I did the same with one of the Blue River blooms that came in the kit. Time to assemble my page: I backed the photo with packaging and glued it to the corrugated layers, then attached the treated chipboard piece to the bottom. I added one of the resin birds from the kit, then the flowers, finishing it all with a Quotation sticker.
