You can count on me – layout

Hello everyone and happy Monday! It´s again time to share another scrapbook layout tutorial with you today, created with Studio Forty product. I´ve again used the Moonchild collection and various clear stamps, word stickers and transparent stickers from the Studio Forty product range on this layout. Additionally I´ve created fun background details and colored some stamped images with Neocolor II watersoluble was crayons. I had so much fun creating this page!!! Here is my finished layout:

And here are some close-up photos:

I´ve used the Moonchild collection „I´m a dreamer“ & „Spirit of nature“ clear stamp sets to stamp the dreamcatchers for the layout. For coloring I used the previosly mentioned Neocolor II watersoluble crayons. They work really well even with the regular white cardstock and the water tank brush!! And the colors worked so well together with the beautiful Moonchild collection papers.

For more details about the layout and the product, also see the blog post over at the Studio Forty blog. If you are interested on the product I´ve used on this page, see the end of this blog post for a full material list with direct links. If a product is not available/linkable, then I always try to add a similar alternative to the link list.

This collection has inspired me so much that I´ve created a second video tutorial for you guys to watch. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to scrap some yourself!!! Here is the video:

Bella BLVD & Canvas Corp Brands BLOG HOP – I love you

bella boulevard hop banner 4Hello lovelies and welcome to the Bella BLVD and Canvas Corp Brands Team Up week!! Today I´d like to share my second design team-up project with you – a bright and happy layout created with the Sweet Sweet Spring papers and Tattered Angels spray inks:

Sanna LippertAs a starting point I took a piece of Ken Oliver Water Media Paper, and using a pencil drew the areas onto the paper where my photos will later be. I then took a water tank paint brush and used the Tutti Frutti tone from the Candendar Mist Kit (English Garden) to paint some hearts onto the background (for supplies, see links on the end of this post).

Sanna LippertAfter drawing the hearts I used the Iris Baseboard tone from the same Calendar Kit and added purple droplets onto the background around the photos.

Sanna LippertNext I used the Olive Wine Glimmer Mist from the same calendar kit and drew green flowers with a paint brush onto the background.

Sanna LippertI wanted to add soem stamping around the photos, so I took a 7gypsies stamp and a turquoise marker to create blue stamped images.

Sanna LippertFinally I also used the Ivory Baseboard tone from the Calendar Kit to create white droplets here and there for additional detail.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThen I added some yellow and pink spray ink droplets onto the background (Summer Glow, Tea Cup & Rosey from Tattered Angels). I also colored the Bella BLVD Chipboard Scripts with the kit colors and added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.

I then cut the water media paper into a right size and several different paper strips on the sides of the layout from the Sweet Sweet Spring collection.

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertFinally I outlined some of the papers and the red hearts with a black pen, added some white hightlights here and there and stamped a date next to the photos. And I could not leave my favorite product, the black Glimmer Glaze unused, so in the end I added just a few droplets fo black here and there for additional contrast.

This is how the fnished layout looks like:

All rolled into one – The Nifty Pixel

Have you already tried a mixed media styled hybrid layout? There is a fabulous mixed media digi kit available at the Digichick store, designed by The Nifty Pixel. Check out the „In Silhouette Vol. I Kit here. This might just be my all time favorite kit EVER! It is so very versatile. You can use the designs for so many kinds of artworks: ATC´s, art journal pages, layouts, pocket pages, cards and so many more.

For additional details and some of my thoughts on creating this page – pls. also see this post at the Nifty Pixel website!! 🙂

This is how I created my layout:

I first assebmlied the Silhouette images onto the background and then added a layer of details/elements from the „Making Marks V.2 Brush Set“ over them. After that I printed the paper and cut it into a right size and matted it onto a piece of deep red cardstock. Approximately the same color as the red Silhouettes.

Next I added some metallic texture paste onto the background thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil and let it air dry. When that layer was dry, I applied some black Glimmer Glaze droplets here and there and let those dry properly. After that I added some outlining/doodling around the edges by using a black pen.

When I started creating this page, I knew I wanted to create a page for my „me book“. I also wanted it to be „different“. While creating, the lyrics of Alanis Morrisette´s song „I´m a bitch“ came to my mind and I knew I wanted to use parts of the lyrics as my journaling. So I printed the lyrics with my black and white printer, fussy cut them and glued them on their places.

I have kept to only a few colors on this layout, so I also wanted to use alphas in similar color. However I had ran out of „l´s“ already, so I had to improvise. Number 7 turned upside down gives a great „l“, don´t you think? And creating an „e“ out of an „F“ and a „dot/square“ is also a way to work your way around missing alpha pieces :-). Finally I just outlined the journaling pieces with a black pen to make them stand out from the bold background better and added a few yellow resin embellishments as additional detail here and there.

So all in all this layout is a really easy one to do, yet it is very bold and I love the effect the repeated black and white photos create. I had a blast creating this layout and I really am in love with this kit. If you have been thinking of giving hybrid/digi a try, why not start with this kit. It sure is very versatile and gives you lot´s of creative freedom, whatever you choose to create!

Hope you have enjoyed this little insight.
Happy hybrid times,
xxx, Sanna
