January Student of the Month – Bernii Miller

student of the month

 

Hello there Clique kits fans, Bernii here with you today to share with you my very first layout that I have created with this month’s Alegria kit as a guest designer.

I am so in love with this kit and as soon as it arrived on my door step here down under I instantly started planning out what pages I wanted to create. So today I actually have two layouts to share with you. The first one was based on the 6 x 6 ” Happy Place” paper pad that I grabbed as an add on from the shop. I simply pulled out the papers that I loved and cut them down to 3×3  squares.

Before adding my watercolour to the back ground I made sure that I brushed those areas with clear gesso so that the cardstock would not buckle and bend. It also helps the black fine line pen to adhere and write better over the watercolour which can tend to be a little glossy.

I just had to add in this exclusive flair to the layout somewhere. It is one of the cutest little foxes I have seen about.

Here is my second layout I also managed to make on the same day with the same kit, although this time i used the Putty My Colours cardstock that I also purchased as an add on from the store. You can find it HERE. To prep this page also I used clear gesso in a thin layer as I knew I wanted to create a mixed media background.

I based this layout on the Hero Arts arrow stencil that I used modelling paste with smack bang in the middle of the layout. I wanted this to act as an anchor point / photo mat for the little 2 x 3 photos that I wanted to use. I then went around the stencil with yellow thread and sprayed over some yellow color mist.

Here is  a closer look at how I created that centre stencil.
