Nathalie back with you with a new Summer Layout that combines a few of the beautifiul Just Nick Studio cut files and mixed media. I found this picture of my sister and niece on the baby's first trip to Cuba, and wanted to take advantage of all the Summer colors to document it.
The colors of my girls bathing suits was the starting point for the background of this page. So a bit of Vicki Boutin watercolor, gesso and iridiscent paste create the watery teal color in the background.
While the mixed media dried, the Tin Tile was used to create the lace-like cut out. All i did was to move the limits of the cut file, so that it fits to a 12x 6 in. so that it can sit on the middle of the page. This was then attached to the background with a bit of foam adhesive.
The title was created from the negative pieces of the Word Brushstroke cut file. I had created a set of these brushtrokes for another project, and kept the word cut outs aside. A bit of gold watercolor makes them stand out on the page.
To frame the picture, clusters of ephemera and stickers from Fancy Pants' Hello Sunshine, Pink Paislee's Birhtday Wishes, and Crate Paper's WIld Heart were created around the picture. I added a water colored leaf from the Stem 4 cut file was added to elongate the lower cluster on the page.
I love how this page turned out. The colors of the background are fresh and inviting, and all the small details just complement the summer feel of the page.
Remember to stop by the JustNick Studio store to check for all the cut files used in this page, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions on how this came together.
