Hello, 49 and Market fans!
Antonia with you today sharing a new layout. And let me tell you a secret: since I received my DT pack with all Curators Botanical embellishments, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed. I’ve just created a layout using this new range of products (that was in mid-February, you can check on the blog), but I felt like I was not using most of this collection. And as I don’t have the papers for it, I was just wondering how to do make all these embellishments stand. I should also say that my DT teammates are really inspiring, and I saw some of their projects and soon I decided what to do for today’s blog post.
In fact, as you can see, it’s a really different page from what I always create. I’d never use a so full of text paper. But this time I wanted to give it a try and use it as the main background paper.
To give it a more interesting look, I first created two layers with two papers from previous collections (one navy and one yellow) and then added this “newspaper” paper over. As the photo, I chose this time was mainly yellow (made by the talented photographer Claudia Marzo, it was perfect to be highlighted with the embellishments from Curators Botanical. To start with, I used some of the new washi tapes to create a vertical layer, helped by a blue doily cut in half. This was my focus point.
Afterward, I added lots of rub-ons here and there in yellow and navy blue, even some beautiful butterflies and texts. Then it was time for the main composition. Using some laser cuts and stack elements, I created the perfect mat for the wonderful photo. Choosing the flowers was even easier: all of the new ranges are great but the blues and yellows were perfect in tone. I doubted about adding green leaves but finally, I added them for a more textured layout. When the main focus point was done -and I thought that was all finished- I decided to add one more flowery spot on the right side of the page so I took some laser-cut elements, ephemera bits, and mini tags, along with some flowers. To finish my project, I added some wishing bubbles, more rub-ons, and art stones.
