Hello Clique Fans!! Erica here with you today and I am so excited to be back on the blog sharing! I have had a nice break after having baby Liam Jay and I am ready to get back to work! Today I am sharing a layout I created using both January 2018 kits! Both kits feature Cocoa Vanilla Studio's Bohemian Dream collection! The Travelers Notebook kit compliments the main kit perfectly and is the perfect add on kit if you do not use it for Travelers Notebooks! The smaller paper packs are perfect for backing cut files and that is exactly what I did!
I purchased this heart cut file from Inna Morevas Etsy shop Handipaper awhile ago and it has been sitting on my desk ready to be backed with pretty paper! I pulled papers that had blues or blue tones in them since I wanted to scrap a photo of our new addition Liam Jay! Once the cutfile was backed with papers I started working on a little mixed media!
The Shimmerz Frost Bite goes perfect with the collection so I added this to my white 12x12 using the packaging technique! I also pulled out my Prima watercolors to add more blues and a little purple splatters! If you are looking for the perfect little watercolor set this is the one for you! It is small but mighty! The colors are beautiful and creamy and it comes in a great little storage tin!
I added the cutfile to the 12x12 paper using some foam tape to give some dimension. Once this was down I began to add embellishments around my photo. I pulled out die cuts and frames that had blue tones and some that were black for some contrast. I also added some black thread for some texture! In the TN kit there are some paper clips from Vicki Boutin and instead of using them as a clip I fussy cut one of the birds out and added it as an embellishment!
This layout came together very quickly after the cutfile was backed and I love how it turned out!
Our January Main kit is not sold out but we do still have a few of the Travelers Notebook kits available in the shop HERE!! This kit is perfect for all paper crafting projects and I highly recommend picking one up! You will not be disappointed! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Below is a photo of my completed layout! I hope you enjoy it and are inspired to create and maybe even get some watercolors out and get a little messy! Don't forget to stop by the Clique Kits shop and check out all the fun new products that have arrived! Have a great day!
