Hi Audrey here once again with a layout using the beautiful Spectrum Sherbet Collection by 49 and Market. I started off with a base of pink by using Vintage Artistry Blush – Soaring Paper. I distressed the edges of each paper I used when creating the layout. I then used the Spectrum Sherbet – Painted Foundations – Speckled piece of paper from the Spectrum Sherbet 12×12 Sherbet Foundations Pack. I cut about 1cm from the top and edge after cutting the barcode strip off. I stuck this to the base of pink showing an even border of pink.

I rolled out about an 11″ strip of Spectrum Sherbet – 4″ Collage Fabric Tape and stuck it to a length of white card, then trimmed it down to the 4″ width of the tape so it’s 4×11″. I then matted that to a strip of Spectrum Sherbet – Solid – Blueberry paper from the 12×12 Sherbet Solids Pack showing a tiny border of colour and stuck this to the left of the layout, onto the Speckled paper. To the right of the tape I applied a strip of Spectrum Sherbet – 12×12 Strawberry Lemonade Rub-on Transfer.

I trimmed my photo down to fit inside the largest size frame from Spectrum Sherbet – Tidal Wave Frame Set. I mounted the frame onto 12×12 Solid – Blue Raspberry paper from the Solids pack, then mounted my photo inside the frame so you could see a glimpse of that paper. That was then mated on a 6×8 paper in pink and then that onto Solid – Blueberry paper. I mounted the whole lot onto the layout. As usual I only applied mounting tape to the centre back of it so that I could tuck extra papers, ephemera or embellishment etc as I went, which I did. I then cut two strips of the widest lace from the Lacy Trim pack, frayed the edges and glued it to the right of the photo, followed by some ripped fabric tape. I applied another strip of 12×12 Rub-on Transfer above this. I then proceeded to make a collection of flowers, laser cuts, ephemera bits, chipboard pieces, lace etc to the left and right of the photo until I was happy with the collection. You may also notice some coloured lace. These were bits of Lacey Trim I previously dyed to match the Spectrum Collection.

I carefully tucked a couple of Vintage Artistry Essentials – Word & shaped Clips in White amongst it. I also embossed some tags from the Spectrum Sherbet – Ephemera Bits and lightly sanded over the top of the embossing to distress it slightly.

To finish off I mounted some of the circles from the ephemera bits over the circles on the Speckled paper.
