Leave Nothing but Footprints – Layout by Lisa Gregory

Leave Nothing but Footprints - Layout by Lisa Gregory

Have you traveled anywhere this year??? Or any other year?? Do you want to document those special travel photos? Then the Vintage Artistry Anywhere Collection is for you!! It’s got gorgeous colors, map patterns, ephemera galore, and you don’t want to miss this wonderful collection. Perfect for those Travel Journals as well. I created a 12×12 layout and started following the August sketch for inspiration. But like a lost traveler, I took a different path, and ended up in a beautiful place anyway!! To finish off my layout, I spattered some thinned out white acrylic paint. The 2 papers from the paper pack that I used are Journal Cards and Quest.

I absolutely love the little vans that remind me of an old VW bus. The couple of different sizes allows for perspective, and it adds to the layout dimension. I cut apart the OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY Rub-ON to follow the lines of the hilly road. I believe some of the Wishing Bubbles I used on this layout are retired, but there are some still available or you may be able to find these colors by searching the web.

I added some jute to the tags. You don’t even have to put real eyelets through them! I used the Essential Foliage for the leaves. I adhere them with ScoreTape which sticks perfectly! The laser cuts in the collection are awesome and plentiful. I stacked and layered them throughout the layout.

The florals I used are the Floral Posies in Mango. The color is delicious! I also added some Wishing Bubbles around the layout in different colors and sizes. You can see the layers I achieved in this layout. I just popped pieces of corrugated cardboard underneath to lift the pieces. I love the string laser cut to wrap around photos. I used it around my stacked laser cuts. I just adhered the ends, and I was able to slip the pieces under the laser cuts to stack them. I also used the Rub-Ons on each of the sections of film strip. I had backed the filmstrip with a scrap left over from the piece I tore for my background.
