VIDEO TUTORIAL: Scrapping Softly {Monochromatic Page}

 
So I took this sweet li'l photo of my youungest daughter Meagan and her cousin a few years back, I just love the sweet soft look of the picture.  I thought I would make a monochromatic style layout to compliment the photo.  I used a variety of Maja Design papers (listed below) along with some new Dusty Attic chipboard (Lavender) and gorgeous lace trims, bloom and vintage button from Tresors de Luxe.  And I thought it might be nice to do another video step by step to share how this page was put together.  I usually do my videos at a fairly quick speed but this time I thought I'd slow it down a little to hopefully make it a little more comfortable to absorb.  Grab yourself a cup of coffee/or tea and Enjoy!
 

 
 Here again are a few close-ups of the page....

Gabrielle, I always enjoy watching your videos and seeing how you create your layouts, but I must say that slowing down the video helps to make it easier to focus on your techniques. Just makes it easier to enjoy the creation even more. :-) I love the colors in this layout.

Finally by a computer! My Iphone and Ipad will not let me comment on blogs for some reason. I just love this layout. The colours are fantastic. Thank you so much for the link so I can get the lace trim. Can't have enough of those. ;)

Gorgeous!! Thank you so much for your videos. I love them. I too would very much appreciate a video from you on how you do your stitching!! ( still have not found that daisy lace trim - that you use on some of your pages that you told me you got from a fabric store - anywhere but I keep looking! If you have the brand name or any info from the roll I would appreciate it). I love your work!!

Teresa said...

Absolutely fantastic, I just watched your video, it's amazing all the beautiful elements you use, you really inspire me, just wish I could make mine look like that.
Happy New Year.

Dodie said...

Thank your so much for sharing your talent and creative process. I am in awe at your beautiful work!

I have a few questions:
1. This video was 30 minutes; how long did the project take from start to finish?
2. Are you related to Patricia Pollacco, a very very very talented children's book author/illustrator (and my favorite)?
3. How was this piece displayed? On a canvas? In a frame? In a scrapbook?

Thanks again!

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Hi Dodie, Thanks so much for your kind comments. To answer your questions....
1. This video is sped up but not by a lot...I only have about an hour and 20 minutes battery time on my video camera (I do it with my phone)....so basically the actual time in making my video layout is about an hour and a half.
2. Funny enough, my sister in law's name is Patricia Pollacco, but she is not the famous book author (She actually spells her name with one less 'c' Pollaco :)...love her books, I used to read them to my kiddies.
3. This particular piece is a scrapbook page, it can be displayed in an album or in a frame :)
