Ladies and gentleman, Lilith....
Hello there everyone. I am thrilled to be the May Documentarian here at Winnie & Walter.
I got the chance to worked with them a couple of years ago and I loved it. I had so much fun creating with the stamps and die they sent me.
Today I will be sharing my first project which is a layout. I used The Framed With Evelin T design stamp set and paired it with the Kindness set. I had filmed the whole process but something went wrong when I uploaded my files and I lost them all. So I'll explain how I created the layout.
I started by stamping the frames and then I added the tree, cactus and leaf shapes. For colour I used alcohol markers and blended different shades together. I choose three tones: pink, grey and green and used black for the stamped images.
To give the frames some depth and have the impression they pop off the page I added some shadow using a light grey alcohol marker.
I also added the shadow to the photo to tie all the elements together.
For my title I picked sentiments and words from the True stamp set. I added a touch of pink with stickers from sticker supply and chose some that would fit in with the layout.
My layouts are a reflection of me, my feelings and things I would like to say to my loved ones. They aren't always about events or places. Scrapbooking helps me express myself which is sometimes a little difficult as my husband and children only speak French but my mother tongues are Dutch and English. I miss expressing myself in these languages and crafting has helped me get my words and feelings out on paper.
A big thank you to Winner&Walter and I'll be back next week with another project.
