Hello Pebbles fans! Terhi here today and I’m thrilled to welcome you to see the Land That I (myself) Love! From unusual perspective. As I live in Finland, and our national colors goes very close to US white, blue and red, I wanted to capture my love for the land that I live in.
This layout is really special for me because of the photograph in it. In the summer 2016 I had a wonderful opportunity to try skydiving and see Finland like a bird. That was more than fantastic experience, and feels so good to back to it with all these gorgeous colors! The photo isn’t crisp and not taken in perfect angle, but during the free fall there wasn’t that much time to make a perfect shot – even though I would have loved one!
I started the layout like I often do: from the background. I started flicking watercolors to the background to the areas I planned to add the photograph and the title. If you want to try this, keep the amount of water as low as possible or prepare the background with gesso first. Otherwise you’ll end up to smudge the paper completely.
The layout has two eye catchers, the photograph and the title. Both are made with the same recipe: flowers cut out from patterned paper, ephemera pieces and lots of patterned paper cut into various shapes. And like I always do, 3D Foam as adhesive and cotton thread to add more dimension.
After the papers and flowers were attached, I flicked white matte mist on top of everything. It makes the dark blue to pop up even more!
My personal favorite product from this line is definitely the embossed thickers! Just look at the beautiful smooth silver color and dark blue underneath. And even though in the package the words and phrases are ready to be added to your project, remember you can always mix the alphas and build your own words.
I hope you find this page inspiring, no matter where you live!
