Hello crafty friends. Davina here on the blog, with some color board inspiration for you today. I made a Slimline scene bursting full of Lawn Fawn goodness, that I hope you love. The June BRIMoodboard is a very zen/spa like color combination of wood grain, both bright and bold greens, and a lavender. At first one would think these colors difficult to use, but since green and purple are complimentary colors on the color wheel, they always look fabulous together.
I pulled out about 7 different Lawn Fawn sets to create this bursting meadow scene, and the new Lawn Fawn Slimline dies both the Large And Small sets. I had a much different idea for this project when I first sat down. And about 5 hours later I had something very different than when I thought I was going to make. While flipping through my sets looking for images I wanted to use, I pulled out Oh Gnome, Gleeful Gardens, Frosty Fairy Friends, Fairy Friends, Jump for Joy, Butterfly Kisses, and A Bug Deal. I stamped about 30 images onto my Neenah classic crest cardstock using my stamp platform. I used the coordinating dies to cut out all of the images before coloring. That way I could create a scene like a puzzle, and only color the images I was going to use.
I used the largest slimline die to cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Kraft Cardstock that I stamped some wood grain onto using Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf Brown ink. Then Using the next largest die, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock that I inkblended with Shaded Lilac & Dusty Concord. I splattered the panel with purple ink, white ink, and glittery perfect pearls. I cut some remnants of green cardstock with the same sized die and added a grassy border to each using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders To create a rolling hillside. I inked the edges of the grass using Mowed Lawn & Lucky Clover.
Then I colored all of my images using my copic markers in color combinations that matched the mood board. I really enjoyed using all of the different shades of wood brown, green, and lavender on these images.then, using a variety of adhesives, I mounted all of the images onto the scene. I decided the little gnomes and the hummingbird needed a little bit of a boost, so I popped them up onto die cut fun foam. I really love the dimension it gives. I glued my layers together then added a little Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter To the roof of the house do the center of my card can have a little Razzle Dazzle.
I really love how this turned out and I hope you do too.
