Happy New Year | Patricia January 4, 2021 06:00
Happy New Year JustNick Studio Friends!! Ah, goodbye 2020 and hello 2021, right?! Even though situations will not magically change, I am holding on to starting fresh and doing what I can to stay positive and especially healthy. Today, I combine the 1 - 9 Outline Numbers and the Happy Words to documenting our New Year's Eve photo to bring in a fresh new year!
I cut 2, 2, and 1 from the 1 - 9 Outline from white cardstock vertically to use on the right side, and used the positive cut outs on this left side against a very fresh pattern paper background.
Keeping with the mindset of a fresh new start, I detail cut bright flowers from pattern paper to frame our New Year's Eve photo. For my journaling, I used the watercolor paper I used underneath my cut 1 - 9 Outline on the right.
This right side, I kept mostly white to help the left pop more with the bright colors. I used clear acetates in stars and circles for the '0.' I backed this numbers with cardstock with watercolors. Some peek through more than others and gives just enough color. I used two more of the detail cut flowers from pattern paper to bring balance and more pop to this white background. And the black acrylic 'happy' repeats the 'happy' I have cut from the white cardstock as well. The 'happy' and the wood veneer numbers are along side the cut out numbers and word.
You can see more of the cut through with this little patch of more concentrated watercoloring.
