Love and Laughter – Layout by Adri du Preez

Love and Laughter - Layout by Adri du Preez

Hello 49 and Market fans!
Here is my layout featuring the Vintage Artistry Lilac 12×12 collection and elements from the Vintage Artistry Sky collection. I had this photoshoot with my cute granddaughter in 2020 and the V/A Lilac collection is just perfect. She is such a fun-loving little girl and creating memories with her is very special to me.

For this layout, I used the Tranquil paper. To create the background, I used two script stamps. I then primed the background with a layer of clear gesso. I added color to the background using Distress Oxide in Shaded Lilac, Salvaged Patina and Wilted Violet. I used a heart stencil, finger dauber and the Wilted Violet to create more interest to the background.

Next, I added rub-on transfers from the V/A Butter / Lilac and Sky to the background. The images on these rub-on transfers are just beautiful.

I layered my photo on pieces from the V/A Lilac Ephemera Stack and an offcut I had left from the V/A Sky Collection, Admit One paper. From the Irrevocable Beauty Laser Cut Shapes, I used a frame, daisies and You make my heart sing phrase. Here you can also see the beautiful Dusty Attic title that I have added to my layout.

To create the two flower clusters, I used Sugar Posies in Fluff and Huckleberry, Garden Petals, and Enchanted Petals in Twilight. I painted the Fluff Sugar Posies with Americana Acrylic paint in Spa Blue. I dry brushed the edges of the flowers with white gesso and Americana Acrylic Paint in Spa Blue, Pansy Lavender, and Wild Orchid.
These two beautiful butterflies are from the laser cuts sheets included in the V/A Lilac and Sky collections. The final touches to this layout included Wishing Bubbles and Baubles from the V/A Lilac and Sky collection, art stones, and splatters with diluted white gesso.
