More Shimelle Head in the Clouds by Niki
Hi Magpies! Niki here today with two more layouts using Shimelle’s latest collection Head in the Clouds. This time I decided to pick out a couple of the characters from the collection and re-create them, supersized, on my layouts.
I have both a mermaid and a dragon in my family so went for those characters!
For this first layout I used white card for my background, with a border using the ‘All a Dream’ paper which has scales on the b side. I cut out the mermaid and made her some hair and a top. I cut semi circles from the scales and then layered those onto her tail. This didn’t look quite as good as I had hoped, so I added lots of sequins which made her tale sparkle!
I added my photos and a long title and of course added multiple mermaid embellishments. I also added a few tiny details to the background to make it look like it was underwater…tiny fish, a jellyfish and hand drew in some bubbles.
For my next layout, I re-created one of the dragons. I made a template first and then cut the different pieces out of different patterned papers. He ended up a bit dark but I drew in all the details with a sharpie to give him definition. I also stitched his eye and eyebrow with white thread.
I added two photos and another long title. This is something I’m enjoying a lot at the moment…making long titles from different alphabets. It’s also a great way to use up my enormous stash of Thickers!
I added in lots of dragon embellishments of course, and popped in a random unicorn too, mostly becuase she was the right colour, but she’s a mythical creature too so I figured it was ok!
Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you’ve enjoyed my crazy layouts! I’ve really enjoyed working with Shimelle’s Head in the Clouds collection, it’s lovely and full of whimsical stuff which appeals to me very much.
Happy scrapping xx
