Hello everyone! Nadia here again with you today ! I hope all is well with you.
Today I wanted to show you a layout I created with the gorgeous Crea Diem
collection and the absolutely gorgeous Sofiero
from Maja Design .
I REALLY love the soft pinks in both these collections and for this layout I added a touch of orange to match my baby girl’s top!
This layout was also inspired by my talented friend Riikka’s
tutorial in the Pop & Colours #2 online workshops , and the composition of it was based on Shirel’s
take on Riikka’s class. Thank you girls for the incredible inspiration you have provided in these workshops. I am also teaching a class at these workshops and you will find the information on that HERE
I started by preparing the base paper, which is the “Royal Summer Residence” paper from the Sofiero collection , with Gesso. Just a light layer so it withstands the mixed media mediums I will place on it.
I then cut strips from the “Fylld av kärlek“ paper from the Crea Diem collection and placed them behind the place where my photo will be. I added some modelling paste with a stencil directly on top and then added some stamping when that was dried.
I then, following the ideas of the tutorial, took out a number of colour mists, inks etc in the same tones and applied them with some water and brush. Others I applied directly with tip of the mist bottle to give it a different finish.
Here is a close up of the Manor House Creations flowers I have used.
And some more gorgeous purple flowers from Manor House Creations. In the image above you can also see some strips of the Crea Diem papers I used on my background.
