Lawn Fawn - Create a Beautiful Birthday Scene || Part 1 & 2 - Coloring and Assembling..

Hello crafty freinds,

Hope you guys are doing well... I'm doing great and pretty excited to share my today's project.. Its all about Lawn Fawn today.. I'm in love with the new lawn fawn release and its crazy cute..

At first I was not sure what I'm gonna make so I started with a with coloring the images from this beautiful BICYCLE BUILT FOR YOU stamp set..
So I stamped all the images using MOMENTO TUXEDO BLACK INK and colored them using COPIC MARKERS..

I have a video tutorial sharing the whole coloring process.. 
So you can grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the coloring..

The list of copic markers I used to color my Images are given in the video tutorial above and also I will list it down here - R 000, R 17, R 24, R 39, C 3, C 5, C 7, E 00, E 11, E 31, E 33, E 35, E 39, 
B 00, B 05, B  24, BV 02, BV 04, Y 19, YR 15, YR 16, RV 06, RV 23
So these were the copic sketch markers that I used to color all my images above.. I like not to add a lot of colors to all my images, I mean I try to choose 3 or 4 colors and try to mix match the colors evenly on all my images to avoid making all of them looking out of place..

When creating such scenes you do not want to distract by adding too many colors to your images, instead stick to some 2-3 colors and evenly distribute them to all the images in the scene to create a perfect balance.. 

Its all about making everything look pleasing to the eyes and not to distract from the whole scene..

So when I thought of craeting my scene I'm not always sure what I really want.. Its not that I know nothing, I have a pretty good picture of the scene in my head, but what I don't have is the color combinations I'm going to use for the elements in the scene apart from the images that I colored above..

So what I do is, I die cut all my elements using white cardstock, so this way I can create my own color combo when I have all my elements infront of me.. And I usually use Distress ink to ink up all my elements.. And what I really about distress ink is that I can give different effects to these elemenst using distress inks with water and all.. So That creates a fun texture on all the elements on the scene and make them look more life like..

This is what I did when I created my elements for this scene.. To start I used the MINI BRICKS stencil from Crafters Workshop and ink up my A2 size background using Vinatge Photo distress inks and mini blending tool. This made a really beautiful wall like background to start my scene.. 

Then I die cut all the different elements like the window panel, tree and the grass border.. I used walnut stain to ink up the tree and then I used distress water sprayer to spray water on to the tree and then bloat it dry using some paper towel.. So that created some beautiful bleached look on to the tree, making it look more life like.. I did the same for the ledge of the window and for the flowers I used Copic makers to color them all. I used G 07, BV 02, BV 04, RV 06, RV 23

Once all my elements are ready, I used my ATG tool and Multi Medium Matte glue from rangers to stick everything on to the panel.. 
When Creating such scenes , you want to stick things flat or on some dimensional tape, to give the illusion of far and near objects...
Like the tree here, I stuck it directly on to my card base to make it look as if its too far away.. Then comes the window panel, I thought I will add some dimension to it, but it looked ok with 2-3 lyers of cardstock and not as flat as the tree.. So I stuck it on the background directly using ATG tool.. 
Then I wanted my grass border to be on infront so, I stuck it using some foam tape..
I also stuck the images of the boy on the bicycle with balloons on the back using foam tape and matte glue. 

For my sentiment I white heat embossed half of the sentiment on the bottom of the card with 3 dots made using white gel pen.. 
And rest of the sentiment is stamped in black inside the card and I also stick one of the balloons image near the sentiment inside.. 

To finish of I used R 24 Copic marker to color the heart on the window panel...

This was a fun project to work on.. And I really am impressed with the whole outcome.. Its gorgeous.. 

Hope you guys do too..
