Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Good Vibes Only

Hello everyone Rachel here again with another layout, Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Good Vibes Only, using the gorgeous Field Notes by Vicki Boutin.

Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Good Vibes Only

I have used the October sketch (Anna’s Craft Cupboard October sketch challenge) to create this layout.

I firstly added some blue water colour paint to my white base paper and some darker blue splatters.

I then used a butterfly cut file frame  the Silhouette Design store using the happy heart layering on the among the wildflowers paper. I then added my photo with a die cut tab tucked in. I used the heart border strip to add to the top and bottom of the blue water colour paper strip.

I added a clear sticker from the sticker book ‘Good Vibes Only’ adding a pop of colour by choosing the vibrant pink/orange.

I then added two strips of wash tape to the top and bottom of my blue paper strip, going for black and white as again it added a nice stark contrast against the white background card. Keeping the sketch in mind I added another strip of the heart border strip under the wash tape and foam taped a larger die cut heart.

I chose two of the beautiful die cut ephemera flowers, layering them over each other with foam tape and adding some extra die cut leaves and branches. The die cut birds in this collection are stunning, I chose this one because of its blues and orange tones that matched perfectly (attached with foam tape to the birds appears to be flying because of the 3D effect). I finished this embellishment cluster off with another clear sticker. I also added some NUVO white crystal drops  to the centres of the flowers and one on the leaf.

To finish I hand punched a butterfly from the floral paper and fussy cut a small blue flower which I attached to the body of the butterfly. I added another clear sentiment sticker from the water colour sticker book going for bright pink.

I chose a black and white photo due to choosing bright colours and patterns for his layout.

I loved this sketch and I am always amazed how there are so many different creative outcomes from a sketch.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Good Vibes Only and join us for this month for the sketch challenge HERE.

Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Wild and Free by Rachel Lowe

Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Wild and Free by Rachel Lowe

Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Wild and Free

Hello scrappy friends Rachel here and during the month of October I will be sharing my creations using Vicki Boutin’s new collection Field Notes and it is so beautiful. Today is share my Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Wild and Free.

So here is my first layout!

Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Wild and Free

A lot of companies now make the most gorgeous packaging which can be used, I always check as I am opening or unwrapping. The Water colour sticker book has a acetate sheet which is water coloured and this inspired this layout. If you look at my layout, behind my photo I have used it, placing stover the blue, which added a water colour effect to the blue paper and down to the white where you can see the pink water colour effect.

I have cut two paper strips from among the wildflowers paper, making the floral strip larger than the blue side. The butterfly strip is actually the border strip. I added some machine sitting to the paper strips to add texture and give a little definition between each strip.

Once I had adhered the packaging watercolour acetate sheet I added my photo using a die cut frame from the ephemera and added two of the die cut flowers with foam tape. I finished this part of my layout of with some fussy cut butterflies from the take flight paper a small fussy cut floral bunch and a XOXO sticker.

I chose the beautiful journal card Wild & Free as my title/theme,  I added some some machine stitching and then added the most gorgeous  bird die cut, more fussy cut butterflies and some watercolour stickers.

I added more fussy cut butterflies and added a watercolour clear sticker to finish off.

The great thing about Vicki Boutin’s collection is that even if you are not a mixed media type you can create the look with the watercolour effect embellishments.

Thats it from me today and my Vicki Boutin Field Notes Layout Wild and Free, but I will be back soon with more using the Field Notes collection.
