Hi all! It’s Kirei here with my layout inspired by Esther’s fab class from the October GoGo Getaway using the Vicki Boutin Art Crayons. Now I don’t have any Art Crayons so pulled out my Faber Castell Gelatos instead! I actually watched a few YouTube videos to see what Art Crayon techniques I could use with the Gelatos and went with this one…. I took a 12″ x 12″ stencil and taped it over a sheet of 12″ x 12″ white cardstock. Then I picked four different colour Gelatos to go with the Pebbles ‘ Forever My Always’ collection and scribbled them directly onto the stencil to create an ombre effect. I then took some Claudine Hellmuth multi-medium gloss and using a small sponge rubbed it over the stencil from the lightest colour to the darkest to blend the Gelatos through the stencil.
After removing the stencil I set it with a heat gun.
And then I put together my layout… firstly mounting my photo with a couple of the patterned papers. Next I layered a couple of narrow strips to the top and bottom of the layout. Then I fussy cut some of the rose clusters, hearts and words and attached them around the photo and in the top left corner of the layout. I finished off with some enamel dots, wooden button, puffy hearts and an oversize title.
Thanks for looking! Don’t forget to share your layouts over on the GoGo Getaway Facebook page as we love to see what you create!
