Love This Face Layout by Jennifer Rambert

Monday, April 19, 2021

  Hi paper lovers! Jennifer Rambert here with a new layout made with the Truly Grateful collection and the Diamond Leaves cut file. I love doing color gradients with cut files and when I saw this one I immediately knew how I was going to work. First, I cut the Diamond Leaves cut file 2 times with my Silhouette Cameo. Once from white cardstock to double and bring relief to the second, cut from watercolor paper. I prefer to use watercolor paper to make my gradients, I find it easier.

I then made the gradient. I wanted the ends to be very dark and lighten the colors inward. I started with dark red then orange and finally yellow on one side and dark purple then purple and finally pink on the other. To achieve this gradient, I used Lindy's inks. Once the gradient was done, I glued the two cut files together offset to create relief. I continued with the background of my page. I coated white cardstock with gesso then I made two-tone halos: a pink halo on the upper part of my page and yellow for the lower part. I used a stencil to make diamond prints to recall the shape of the tone-on-tone ink cut out on either side of the halos. Once the background was finished, I glued the cut file with 3D foam, tilting it a bit. I inserted my photo up to the foliage so that it overlaps the photo. All that remains is to decorate!

I fussy cut flowers and butterflies from Truly Grateful patterned papers. I also used Floral Die Cuts and Ephemera Die Cuts. I mainly decorated the top and bottom of the photo and added the title with the words and Thickers. I finished with a splash of golden ink.

This page is exactly what I imagined! The colors are intense and brilliant, really what I love and I loved making this color gradient. I really wanted this Diamond Leaves to be the center of my layout. I hope this page has inspired you for a future project. Thanks for stopping by & I wish you a wonderful creative day!
