Story Time with Pooh! What could be better than reading to Winnie the Pooh. I used lots of solid cardstock with just a little bit of patterns from VBoo. I threw in some mixed media, and of course I had to create a Winnie the Pooh die!
Choosing to use Cougar White, Red Re-Entry, Gum Drop Green, Dark Teal, Limeade, and Camomile. I used a few sheets from the Vicki Boutin Wildflowers & Honey line. Using the hexagon sheet in particular was my favorite because it had all those colors and I could rotate the pattern to look like honeycombs!
Story Time with Pooh Mixed Media:
Using an older Vicki Boutin Stencil and some Paper Glaze in Pansy Black, I added with mixed media on the left hand side. Being it was Story Time, I felt this stencil would be adorable to mimic the pages in a book. Filling the whole section with the stenciling would have been too much and taken away from the rest of the page. Carefully I was very deliberate in where I placed the stenciling. Starting at the bottom of the page to avoid the stencil hitting the wet glaze.
Creating Winnie the Pooh:
Winnie the Pooh is my all time favorite Disney character! Using some Basis Black, Red Re-Entry, and a scrap piece of darker yellow, I cut him out with my silhouette and pieced him together. After he was completely dry, I added some Morning Dew Crystal drops so his nose and eyes looked wet.
Planning the Layout:
With everything dry, I pulled out my pictures, cut some supporting pieces, tags, and added a journal piece. I used some Catherine Pooler inks to ink my edges. Adding some ribbons to the tags, time to mat my photos. I used some Basis Black and the same Cougar White.
I usede some thickers for my titles, one of them I choose because I wanted to use the same Catherine Pooler inks to watercolor them. Adding in some custom Winnie the Pooh flair, matching sequins, and as always Nuvo drops. Making sure the thickers with glued down well and dry, I started water-coloring them in.
Finishing up Story Time with Pooh Layout:
Finishing this layout I added very little. Winnie the Pooh being the star was vital! Using a few word stickers and a phrase piece to finish up. This layout turned out adorable for me. I enjoy taking these sort of color combinations and using them in ways you probably would think to use them. Red, Green, and White are usually associated with Holidays. Here I have taken them and used them with Pooh!
I hope you all enjoyed a different take on these colors. I would love see you take them and use them in a non-traditional way. Happy Crafting!
