Hello Paperlovers,
Welcome to my new post on the Cocoa Vanilla blog today! It’s Josefine here with a new scrapbook layout. For this layout, I chose a winter layout that I created with the amazing Joyful Collection and was inspired by the Cocoa Vanilla Moodboard.


One of the things that inspired me was the winter photos and the light blue color of course I added some extra colors to my design. With the velum and white gesso splatters, I tried to capture the winter vibe.


I start with a mixed media background that I created with the distress oxide ink. I chose the color “Victorian Velvet” I applied the ink with a stamp to my white cardstock background by stamping several times. This is how I created a stain of ink in the center of my layout. I punched out several butterflies from the design paper, vellum and light pink tissue paper.

I used gold sewing thread and stitched the butterflies together. I also punched out a photo in a butterfly shape. I placed the butterflies in the center of the mixed media background and start decorating using die-cuts, flowers, stars, stickers and wooden buttons.I placed die-cuts, flowers and stickers between the butterflies. I loved how that turned out. Look the gorgeous word strips on my layout and the gold title Memories under the butterflies. I splashed white gesso and gold acrylic paint splatters on top of the butterflies and embellishments.I punched some white twigs out of white cardstock and gave them a winter look with the Nuvo glacier. WoW, such a cool effect! I really love the shimmers. Curious to see more details and exactly how I made the layout!
