Getting in a Monochromatic Mood with Katarina Prevendarova

Hi, friends. It’s Katarina here today with a brand new layout featuring the gorgeous June 2021 kit and add-ons. I really love all the navy blue elements in the June release so I decided to create a monochromatic layout focusing on all the blues, with pops of purple.

I started by cutting the wave cut file and using it as a mask. I chose four hues of Distress Oxide inks. Using a stencil brush and my cut file mask, I blended them all together creating a nice wavy background. 

I found two photos of sunsets above Lake Garda and the mountains that went perfectly together with the products I wanted to use. I continued with a lot of layering. I used patterned papers from the Good Times Paper Stack as well as journaling tags and die cuts from the June Kit and the June Labels to create lots of layers behind my photo.

To embellish my photos I used one of the Cork Labels, a chipboard star from the Stars and Stripes Chipboard Stickers and a couple of white acrylic stars from the Patriotic Acrylic Stars.

I always love to combine different fonts to create my titles. This time I used both navy alphabets from the June release: the Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers and Navy Parker Acetate Alphabet Stickers. I split my title above and below my photo to add a bit more balance. I love to overlay the acetate alpha stickers a bit to create some more interest.

From both sides of my title I added circular acrylic stars and I used the fact that they have a star shaped hole to add two pieces of book binding thread, stapling them with dark blue staples and securing them in the back side of my layout. It reminded me of all the ropes used in the harbors on the lake.

I finished off by scattering lots of acetate, acrylic and chipboard stars in shades of blue and purple around my layout. 

I love how it turned out! The June products were absolutely perfect to document our beautiful summer memories.
