Holly & Jolly - Layout by Kim Arnold

Hello,

For today’s layout, I am using the Vintage Artistry Peace and Joy collection. The Rob-on Transfers in this collection are magical and as soon as I saw them I knew that I had to do a layout featuring the word sheet from the Rub-ons.

I chose the B side of the Peace and Joy Yuletide paper which is available in the Collection pack and separately. I really like the distressed water coloured effect of this paper. It looks like you have done mixed media with none of the effort! I decided to keep the salvage strip as part of my layout as it was such a beautiful and bright diagonal red stripe, and I knew it would work perfectly with the bright red in the Rub-ons. To keep the salvage strip, I simply trim the paper down to 12 inches from the top.
I then used a 4×6 inch frame from the laser cut elements in the Collection Pack to frame my photos which are two 3×4 inch photos. Once I worked out where I wanted to put the photos on the page, I then determined where I wanted the page of word Rub-ons to be, laid them on the page and applied the whole sheet as it comes from the pack.

I then used the star Rub-ons from the Peace and Joy Rub-on Transfers to add a splash of stars that run from towards the top right of the page down to the Rub-on words and then below the words. I cut parts of the Rub-on sheet to create the main part of the splash and then used some extra stars to fill in around the letters so it looks like the stars run into the words.

I then attached my photos with a layer of foam for dimension and then tucked in frames, tags and labels from the laser cut elements and Peace and Joy Ephemera Bits around the top, with one label to the right and one frame at the bottom.
The layer of elements across the bottom of the photos was made with two berry branches, three holly boughs and the bow from the laser cuts that come as part of the Collection Pack and the beautiful banner from the Ephemera Bits.

The final touch is adding the title from the Ephemera Bits to the top right corner and embellishing it with lights from the Peace and Joy Wishing Bubbles and Trinkets. I then drew in the string to make them into a string of lights hanging under the title. A final epoxy heart and bird from the Wishing Bubbles and Trinkets, a jute bow on the tag and the journaling under the photos and this layout is done.
