Craft Bunker of Ignorance HOP | Scrapbooking Process #12 - They Grow up Too Fast. 12x12 Scrapbooking Layout

Hey There!

Today I wanted to share a fun hop with you for Craft Bunker of Ignorance Facebook Group.

This page was based on a sketch, that lovely Irit Langraf created for this hop. If you want to become one of the bunkers, join the Facebook group here - Craft Bunker of Ignorance. We are a friendly bunch ;)

Here is a process video of my take on the sketch:

For this page I've pulled out my brand new but unused White Nights watercolours (they are soooooooo beautiful and vibrant ahh) - I will leave a link to amazon below where you can find them, they are VERY affordable for a professional quality paint.

I've loosely sketched out the circle using 3 colours and somewhat filled it in - I made sure to have brush strokes visible for texture look on the page.

To contain the circle a bit and give it more definition, I've used my also so very beautiful Neocolour II crayons (water soluble) which i neglect way too much. I'll leave a link below to those too.

I've drawn around the circle with crayons and then gone over the lines with clean paint brush dipped in water to start the dissolving process - this blurs the lines a bit and intensifies the colour - so pretty!

For the title i've used 2 different fonts of letter stickers for a bit of interest. Those gold stickers are one of my favourites - I could use those on every page!

A page is not complete without some pretty Washi! I've added some behind the photos and to ground a part of the title. It contrasts the background a bit which adds a bit more colour to the page - love colour.

Gold Washi is also a must - I've used it to frame the top and bottom of the page to bring your eye into the middle where the photo is. I've added 3 clusters of embellishments, once again to move your eye around the page and rest on the photos.

It's a great way to mat our photos on stripy paper, i feel it adds a bit of movement to the photo and the page overall and make a photo stand out. I didn't want to cover up all that work i did in the background so i've matted my photos together onto a piece of vellum. It provides subtle separation from background, yet you can still see it.

Ah that photo is so cute! My puppy at just a few days old. I've kept photo on the right in colour, and left one turned black and white (the carpet if very green, I didn't want it to stand out on the page)

The final touch is always some journaling - I thought it would be fun to write around the circle. Looks a bit more textured once again and fits within the design.
