Today, I present you my project made with the Savannah scrapbook main and add-ons. Lately, I am in love with simple and rather clear designs, but this time I decided to prepare something that many of you love most - a mixed media project. I hope you will enjoy this short step by step tutorial. I prepared a few patterned papers from the main Savannah kit, I printed February's printables Tybee Island, added two square photos to my son and our new dog , Jadzia, plus gesso and watercolor media.
First, I combined patterned papers and journaling cards together. I created multiple layers and united them all on a white background paper.
I stuck all these scraps and started to cover them here and there using white gesso. Usually, I use an old credit card or a palette knife to spread the gesso, but this time I used a brush because I wanted a thinner layer of this medium.
I decided to move these amazing orange/salmon/navy colour from the journaling card to the background. When the gesso base was dry, I covered a few places using peerless watercolor papers and Neocolors II crayons mixed with water.
I spread these shades on a pink patterned paper. I know these are warm colours, and my photos are full of snow, but I really like this contrast here. I think it's cool :)
When the whole painting was dry I started playing with Savannah stamps (my fav!)
I cut my title from the Crate Paper from the scrapbook add-on.
The embellishments are cut from the printable cards, they are mixed with Crate Paper chipboards, tangled orange thread and wood veneer hearts.
