Controlled Chaos | Jessica Fabiano

Hey guys! I am so in love with the Vicky Boutin Art Crayons that you can find in the color kit. And my love for abstract art just continues with these new toys; it’s probably just a phase, but I want to make the most out of it. I believe that if you document a specific style while scrapbooking, you also document a piece of you through the way you’re working. Here’s what I created for today:


I barely use black as a shade on any of my layouts when it comes to watercolor, but I really wanted to change that up today. My assignment for the week was also to not use any flowers; and I have no difficulties doing that when it’s about abstract art as a main style. I find that flowers and art make me cringe anyway.



Look at how the magenta pops when you use black as a contrast! It gives the layout a different feel and I am definitely encouraged to use black a lot more!


I mixed the black with little pops of mint and yellow; this creates some interest and breaks the whole look of magenta and black.




Love this closeup so much! You know me – I’m all for color atmospheres and mint, pink, magenta, black, white and yellow just make me sing with joy!




This spotted/dotty black and white paper frames and embraces the whole artsy look. If you think your artsy background needs something else: go for a black and white pattern! Black and white stripes, dots, spots, sprinkles – whatever! It will most likely work.
