I had to use the Color Kit with modeling paste using the bubblegum mist from the kit. My idea was to then cut the modeling paste page after and do a type of grid. I cut them to about 1.5.” It did not come out as I had it in my head, but I had fun, I love the colors with the photo, and it is okay to not have every page be 100% your favorite.
I started by applying gesso to the french doors pattern paper, and then ended up cutting those into strips along the 12×12 kraft cardstock. Some of the modeling paste images, I fussy cut, and tucked under the long french doors pattern paper. I layered the squares, with more pattern paper and the vellum from the kits…I tucked in just a tiny bit of the woodgrain pattern paper from the February kit to add some warm colors. I do love the kraft background with this to also add some warmth to the page along with the wood veneer. Most everything is attached with the sewing machine.
I complimented the bubblegum pink with black and a tiny bit of the aqua/mint green to form a triangle. I created my title from the Crate Paper chipboard from the Embellishment kit.
I outlined the layout with a thin line of black paint to go along with the artsy feel of the layout. I added my journaling onto the same vellum sheet at the bottom. Layouts like this that I am unsure of I do a check: 1) is it a good design 2) good balance of color and embellishments 3) is the story being told And if I feel like I can answer all of these questions, then I let it go. Part of this hobby is having fun and sometimes stepping outside of our creative bubble.
