I am up on the blog today with a new layout featuring Vintage Artistry Essentials. I absolutely love this collection because it is neutral, you can add any color accent you want. I chose to stay with blues and greens to give it a forest vibe. I also followed the May Sketch. I look to sketches sometimes to kick start an idea. With me, it always takes on a life of its own. But I am always in love with the result. For the background, I used the Essential Rub-On Transfers. The tiny little beads look so realistic! I just randomly rubbed on some designs here and there. So many to choose from!! And they are all beautiful!
This is the sketch. Join the challenge for a chance to win a wonderful prize pack from 49 and Market!
I decided I wanted to showcase my title as well. So, I created a small cluster complete with flowers, bow created from the jute, a slide frame from the Ephemera Bits collection, and the banner for the title. I love the little acetate butterflies from the Essentials Foliage collection. I scattered 3 on the layout.
I chose to use 2 of the same photos, and placed them behind the square file frames. I processed one photo in an antique brown and left the other color. I layered them on top of the laser cut wreath from the 12×12 Essential’s collection. I clipped on a Shaped Clip arrow to the square file frame. I added some sticks from my yard to the laser cut fence. It just adds some extra dimension.
All of the new flower collections are beautiful! I chose the Royal Posies and Royal Spray in Ocean Jade. They are so pretty! I clustered some laser-cut leaves, the acetate foliage and the fern leaves from the Royal Posies Collection in each of the corners of my photo cluster. I added some glitter to the flowers for some extra sparkle.
