Life is better when you're laughing - Layout by Adri du Preez

Hello 49 and Market fans!
Here is my first layout for December featuring the beautiful Vintage Artistry Teal 12×12 collection.
This is a photo of my daughter and son-in-law at a friend’s wedding.  This is a very candid moment where something very funny was said.  Their laughter and happiness are evident.
I used the B side of the Breeze paper for this layout.  I created the background for this layout using a background stamp, then I primed the background with clear gesso.  To add color to the background, I used Distress Oxide in Candid Apple and Peacock Feathers.
Here is my layout.

The photo is framed with a V/A Essentials 4×6 Frame and layered over pieces from the V/A Teal Ephemera stacks, as well as elements from the laser cut sheets.

 I then added rub-on transfers from the V/A Teal/Mango and Sky/Navy to the background.  Here you can also see how I used the Teal wishing bubbles and baubles.

I used Majestic Bouquet and Royal Posies in Tomato, Blossom Blends in Sea Breeze and Sugar Posies in Fluff to create the flower clusters. I added leaves and flowers from the laser cut sheets.
