Jenn Gagne is on the blog today with another beautiful project! We love how her mountain layout turned out. Check out her video below and the beautiful detail photos. Jenn will take it from here!
Hello again!!! Let me tell you about this layout, what a journey! I love the colours in the More Adventures collection and I can't help but want them all on each layout I make, so for this one, I decided to use a sketch that I posted in my local scrapbooking group, as a challenge for the month of January.
The sketch offered me the opportunity to use several of the patterns (and colours) from the collection and I thought it would be fun to work with. Well, let me tell you, this ended up looking completely different than I expected, but in the end, I think it all came together and it was a lot of fun to make!
I used some Faber-Castel whipped spackle on the background to mimic the snow from the pictures I chose. Once it was dried I used the smooshing technique with some blue Recollections spray mist and some Jane Davenport watercolour, and splatter the colour around a little as well. I followed the sketch fairly closely but used bigger pictures, and added more embellishment than the sketch had. I followed the diagonal line of the pictures to add some Evalicious puffy stickers, wood veneer, and flair, from their On Our Way collection. I used a die cut of mountains, and fussy cut one of the More Adventures cards of the mountains with a quote, to emphasize that the pictures took place in the mountains.
Even though I had a sketch to follow, I really struggled to find the right place to put everything. I fussed around with the placement of the pictures, the size of the papers I cut, the position of the mountain die cuts and the card that I fussy cut. I added some extra paper layers, using the branding strips of the papers I used, because I felt there needed to be more colour, I chose not to use a big title because I felt it would be too busy, and eventually I got to a point where I liked it... and then, after taking the pictures, writing my blog post, and editing the process video... I moved things around, lol. They are subtle changes, but I feel much better with the layout now. Have you ever gone back and changed a layout after you thought you were done with it? Let us know in the comments below!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next week, Happy Scrapping!
