Hello 49 and Market fans!
Here is my first layout for June featuring the beautiful Vintage Artistry Essentials collection. This collection is natural, and the botanical designs are amazing and suitable for any photo. Such a romantic feel. I used this photo of my daughter and changed the colour cast of the photo to sepia.
For this layout, I used the Savor paper. It was a big decision to decide what paper to use, as all the paper in this collection is just stunning. I used a leave stamp around the edge of the circle on the paper.
On the background, I used rub-on transfers from the V/A Essentials and V/A Blush/Sage collections. Here you can see how I used the leaves under my flower clusters, doilies, and script, and butterflies and beads from the V/A Bush/Sage rub-on transfers.
I framed the photo with a frame from the 4×6 inch File Frame set and layered this on a square file frame and elements from the V/A Essentials Ephemera pack, which is loaded with great pieces. I also used a twine photo wrap from the V/A Anywhere laser cut sheet, for sure one of my favourite elements to use on a layout. I also added a few chipboard stickers. The “Live with purpose” banner is also the title of this layout.
To create the two flower clusters, I used Royal Spray Olive, Royal Posies, Royal Marble Posies, Maura’s Vineyard in Chardonnay, and Sugar Posies in Butterscotch. I dry brushed the edges of the flowers with white gesso and Americana Acrylic paint in Green Mist, True Ochre, and Oyster Beige as well as a gold rub. I also added leaves, phrases, and butterflies from the laser cut sheets and Ephemera bits.
The final touches to this layout included art stones and splatters with Distress Oxide in Dried Marigold and Peeled Paint as well as diluted white gesso.
