Monochromatic – Shades of blue layout.2:53:00 PM
If you haven’t seen the new Lady Pattern Paper Oh my word! sticker sheets yet, then you are in for a treat. I think one of my favourites is the Baby Boy sticker sheet with its cute little whale (yeah I was sold immediately). But I was even more excited when I started creating with them. At such an amazing price tag I couldn’t help but almost use the entire sticker sheet on a layout and not even feel guilty for doing so.
I opted to create a beautiful monochromatic layout to match my stickers and found not only my Lady Pattern Paper scraps useful but some other scraps too.
Monochromatic colours are all the colours (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue. Monochromatic colour schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints
I like matting my stickers to make them look ‘more’ if that even makes sense. So I start off by matting them.
Remove the sticker from the sticker sheet and adhere them to Lady Pattern Paper scrap bits of paper.
Freehand trim around the sticker to leave a coloured border.
Cut some of the little images out of the sticker and use them directly onto your layout or card. TIP: Ink the edges to hide cutting marks.
I added my matted stickers and cut out bits to my layout and added finishing touches like the sewn crosses and lines to them. I like dressing up my stickers a bit to help them support my theme better. Adding little details to stickers will give you dimension and texture to an otherwise plain and flat sticker elemen
