Las Cinco Layout by Nidia Rubio

Saturday, August 17, 2019

Hi, friends! It's Nidia Rubio from Scrapamundi, and I'm here to show you another layout with pieces from the Horizon collection. In this post I introduce you to four good friends. The day of the photograph was a very special day because the daughter of one of them was baptized.
For this layout I used Paper 24 as the background because I wanted to create contrast to the gesso stripes. I made the gesso stripes in three steps. First of all I covered the central zone of the layout with a light layer of gesso. When it was dried, I used the Sunburst Rays Background cut file with modeling paste. And finally, when it was dried, I used the Star Confetti cut file with modeling paste again to create the shooting stars shower effect.

For making the frame of the photograph I used the Frame cut file and I cut pieces of Paper 12 to add color to the composition. I really liked the layout in this moment but I realized that it was missing a few details and my husband told me that I maybe could try to add some colors covering the shooting stars shower scene. He always helps me when I have doubts in my scrapbooking projects :)

Then I painted the background with watercolors and I saw he was right. These colors are the perfect touch to create the effect that I was looking for. I also added Ephemera Die Cuts. To finish I used white Mini Thickers from Pick-Me-Up painted with different inks to compose the title of the layout and I wrote my journaling.

I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed creating this layout :) Thanks for stopping by!
