Hello, dear 49 and Market fans! Antonia Moreno with you today sharing a new project. The last layout I created had no flowers on it, and that was a real challenge for me. In today’s creation I’ve used flowers again – it’s a lovelier style for me!! So, back again to my comfort zone, I took this wonderful photo, asked for permission to use it and start looking for embellishments on my stash.
After a few minutes, my desk was full with papers, flowers and laser cuts, but I had no idea about which colors to use… maybe grey and yellow? Greens and pinks? I finally chose blues and yellows, which is a really beautiful combination and matched the photo.
I first worked on the background. I glued two papers (Old School Mini Collection over Vintage Remnants Collection) in order to distress around the blue one a little bit. Then I thought about the composition for a while, trying to imagine how it was going to be and putting some elements on the paper (flowers, chipboard and so on). These thoughts let me decide where to stamp or use my inks that should end around the photo. Once I had a clear idea, I took every piece apart and, after mixing texture paste with some ink powders, started to stencil over the paper and stamping here and there. If you were wondering about it, I used a sandpaper on the edges of the photo, so it gets a vintage shade 🙂
Up to some point, when you’re creating a layout, you know how you want it to be; but some times, I change my mind and decide to put some embellishments instead of other previously selected. And that’s what happened today 🙂 It was clear that I’d use chipboard and flowers for matting the photo, but changed the embellishments, laser cuts and title some times during the creation process, until I was happy with the result.
Again, as I usually do, I used laser cuts from different collection sets. I love them all: they are versatile, beautiful and great for layering. So, in this layout you’ll see laser cuts from Old School, Serendipitous, Bold and Beautiful and Ethereal mini collections!
To finish the layout, I added some art stones, beads and dimensional Wishing bubbles – I can’t work without them anymore!
