Hi, Audrey here with a layout, using ARToptions Alena. I started off with ARToptions Alena – Dramatic paper from the ARToptions Alena – 12×12 Collection Pack as my base. I didn’t want to take away from the paper too much as I loved that circle/wreath on the page. So I used that circle design and built the layout around it.
I cropped my photos to fit behind the blue frames from the ARToptions Alena – Laser Cut Outs. Added a couple of layers of foam tape behind them for depth. I chose the red frame from the same pack and stuck that in place to the bottom right of the page and tucked a tag in at the top. I added the laser-cut cord to the bottom of one of the framed photos and stuck both photos in place. Tucked a ticket to the left of one photo and a tab with rub-on words to the right side of the other photo.
I then proceeded to build my collection below the photos, following the curve of the design on the paper. Amongst the collection are brand NEW flowers from 49 and Market. Some being the Newest little flowers on the block – Florets, I used the Mango ones. Their big sister I guess in this colour is the NEW Natures Bounty flowers, I used – Mango and Salsa. I applied these using hot glue. Amongst the flowers are lace, the cutest little buttons, charms, flowers, butterflies, and leaves all from the ARToptions Alena – Laser Cut Outs.
To finish off I added a word tab with the words ‘Be Happy, Be You’ which is the title for my layout and if you look really carefully you might see some philodendron leaf rub on transfers from Vintage Artistry Beached – Rub on Transfers.
