Vicki Boutin Color Kaleidoscope Layout Strike a Pose

Hello everyone, Melinda here with you today with another share, my Vicki Boutin Color Kaleidoscope Layout Strike a Pose. It’s another 12×12 layout using the awesome Color Kaleidoscope collection by Vicki Boutin!! This one is a little different to my others so far! The first difference is it is NOT a rainbow page, lol! The second difference is this page is one of a two pager. Now, I’m not talking a double pager but 2 singles that are companion pages. They are all a part of one story but I had too many photos for one page for me.

I chose this fun rainbow circle pattern from the 12×12 Paper Pad for my background and got to layering bits and pieces. Starting with the paper pad I used a couple of prints to back my photo. Next up I cut out a couple of the cut aparts from the paper pad to use in my layers.

I knew pretty quickly that I needed something behind those pieces so I chopped a big piece of the lime green pattern to go behind everything. That pattern was the winner as that is the paper I chose for the background of my companion page. One of my favourite things about the Paper Pad is you get 2 of all the patterns and each are double sided!!

To add more interest I dug into the labels ephemera pack in the Color Kaleidoscope collection and also the Field notes collection and layered those up in 2 places.

Time for some different textures!! I started with the Hello Friend Thickers in the collection adding to the top cluster and the bottom. Also some of the hearts from the Colorful Thickers, also in this collection.

My title and the twine are from my stash. As soon as I snapped these photos (back in October!) I knew the title HAD to be Strike A Pose lol! After adding the twine to the tags I made a loopy, lose line to break up all the straight edges.

Much happier with my page composition I now wanted to add a little something extra. I reached for my Field Notes ephemera pack and pulled out 2 of the moths. Adhesive has only been added to the body’s so I could lift the wings.

In order to bring a bit more black around the page I did 2 things. First I outlined a couple of the paper boxes with a doodley line. Then I watered down a little black gesso and splattered all around the page.

I have a process video for my Vicki Boutin Color Kaleidoscope Layout Strike a Pose and I would love you to check it out below!

This page was a lot of fun to put together! I love all of those layers! Remember to head back to tomorrow to see how my companion page comes together!

Until then, happy scrapping!
Melinda
