Hello Beautiful people!!
I hope you are safe and tucked away, and creating in your part of the world. This week I bring to you, a new layout using the Vintage Artistry Hike More Collection. I can’t get enough of it. I love the woodsy feel with all of the fern, mushrooms, and awesome ephemera.

I was working from this month’s sketch, (turned it sideways) when I decided I wanted to focus on layers. With all of the laser cuts and ephemera, this was the perfect opportunity. There is so much more to this collection. I absolutely adore the fabulous Rub-Ons. They glide on like butter, and the edges are so seamless, they just blend right into the paper. On the background I did just a bit of stenciling using texture paste and a Dusty Attic script stencil. I finished off the layout with a bit of color wash and some spatters. I also machine stitched around the 12×12 paper, and scattered some Wishing Bubbles and Baubles around the page.  

September Sketch

You can see the layers I have created going across the page. I machine stitched two of the laser cut frames, used a Vintage Artistry Essentials File Frame as the photo mat, and topped it with a the cute little Vintage Artistry Essential Binder Clip. I cut the laser cut photo reel in half and tucked it under the frame, then I just started adding the laser cuts and ephemera in a line across the page, lifting some of the pieces off of the page by placing pieces of corrugated cardboard underneath.

I loved layering all of the pieces. And when I thought I was done, I found another piece to tuck in somewhere. The little Go Outside flag/banner was perfect for this spot. My granddaughter practically lives outside!! You can do that 24/7 in Florida where the weather is gorgeous all year around. Just check out that sweet little dragonfly!! It is a laser cut from the 6×8 collection.

Just look at those mushrooms!! I love them! The Hike More Collection has plenty of mushroom singles and clusters. There are sweet butterflies, and lots of frames, big and small. I wanted to go minimal on the flowers, and focus more on the greenery. The Sugar Stems in Tutti Frutti are a perfect match.
