Today I bring you another layout created from the gorgeous Vintage Artistry Nature Study. I can’t tell you enough about this collection. One of my favorite colors is green, and this collection has plenty of it!! I chose a photo of my beautiful grandson. He is non verbal autistic, but oh so sweet and smart. And also so curious, and never seems to lose his sense of wonder.
To set the base of this layout, I chose the piece of 12×12 paper #4 from the Color Swatch Toast collection. I lightly traced a big circle in the middle of the paper then machined stitched around the circle, and went around a few times creating different sizes.
Once the circles were sewn around the paper, I used the Nature Study 6×8 Rub-Ons over the sewn circles. I placed the Nature Study Ephemera Bits frame onto the bottom side of the circle, and placed the Nature Study General Laser Cut tree to the side of the frame. Everything else just fell into place once the base was created.
I tied some single ply jute around the photo before I placed it in the frame. I covered the laser cut tree with tiny Pixie Petals in Salmon, and backed them with a cut apart leaf vine from the Sugar Petals Butterscotch flowers. The little leaves are the perfect size. To frame the photo I used Enchanted Petals in Salmon and Royal Posies in Olive. After I tucked in the leaves from the flower collections, I added a bit of excelsior for a bit of texture. A little goes a long way.
It amazes me how easy it is to place the rub ons on different surfaces. I rubbed them right onto the stitched area of the paper. It was no problem at all!! They glided on beautifully! I love the sentiments. Instead of a main title, I just used a few of the sentiments clustered on the page.
Here is a close up of the beautiful flowers. I so adore the tiny clusters of mushrooms. I used a combination of laser cuts, ephemera and washi stickers for the mushrooms around the layout. So delicate and so beautiful!. I love the little laser cut nest, and placed the smaller one in the tree. Nature truly abounds in Nature Study. Specimens galore to use in your projects. From the tiniest bees to the tress. There is something for all of your Nature themed projects.
