Summer Paradise Layout with Caroline

Hi lovelies!

Caroline here and happy to be with you, with another step by step tutorial for Lindy’s this month! I’m going to show you how to make a beautiful summer layout with vellum leaves.  I used the fabulous  Starburst and Flat Fabios sprays to color my vellum and create personalized papers.

Let’s start with a vellum paper of course! Vellum is a very delicate and transparent paper. It is really thin and tends to buckle when wet. That’s why I’ve taped mine to the work surface using washi tape. I used different shades of green and yellow to add color.

I let it air dry for a couple of minutes, maybe 30 and I finished the drying with my heat gun. Go gently as the vellum can easily burn. You can see the gorgeous Starburst Bells of Ireland Green, Merry-go-round Flat fabio and Luminous lemon Flat fabio mixed together.

With my favorite leaf dies I made some die-cuts and I’m now ready to start summer layouts!

I started my background on a watercolor paper with Merci beaucoup mint Flat fabio and Starburst Azure sea asters.

Then I chose a chipboard and some matching embossing powders to color it. I love Guten tag teal and Tilt-a-Wheel Teal together they are gorgeous.

With those gorgeous elements, it was easy to create something beautiful!

Let me show you some close-ups:

I molded some seashells with paper clay and I’ve colored them with Starburst Azure Sea Asters.

You can clearly see here how the leaves are more gorgeous with vellum. This little touch of green is simply perfect!
