Always BELIEVE in yourself - Layout by Adri Du Preez

Hello 49 and Market fans!
This is my first layout featuring the beautiful Vintage Artistry Mango 12×12 collection. The colors in this collection are just amazing and I really loved working with this collection. I used the B side of the Orange Blossom paper for this layout. I decided to keep the name strip with the words and butterflies on the bottom and trimmed the equivalent off the top of the paper.
To create the background, I used a grid and postal stamp.  A layer of clear gesso is then applied to prime the background. Distress Oxide in Ripe Persimmon and Fossilized Amber is used to add color to the background.
Here is my layout.

Next, I added rub-ons from the V/A Teal/Mango Rub-on Transfers to the background.

My photo is layered over a frame from the laser cut sheet included in the V/A Mango 12×12 collection as well as pieces from the V/A Mango Ephemera stacks. Don’t you just love the laser cut notebook I used?  I used a photo wrap and bow from the laser cut sheet to embellish my photo, a great addition to a layout. A few butterflies from the laser cut sheets always make their way onto my layouts.

To create the flower clusters, I only used elements from the two laser cuts sheets and a few foliage die cuts.  Because my layouts are usually filled with flowers, I challenged myself not to use any paper flowers. I raised a few elements on foam tape. I added a clip from the V/A Essentials set of white arrows.

The final touches to this layout included these beautiful wishing bubbles and baubles also from the V/A Mango 12×12 collection.
