Hi lovelies

And another gorgeous new range to play with here at 49 and Market – the ARToptions Viken range – the mix of purples and greens is just GORGEOUS! I have a layout to show you today using this stunning new collection:

I have picked the reverse side of the ARToptions Viken Floral Notes paper to create my layout. I cut the page down to 12×12 at the top of the page leaving the bar code strip at the bottom, and then added a strip of the Viken fabric washi tape at the top of the page, adding in the two word strips “happiest experience” and “life’s simple pleasures” from the ephemera pack. The photo is adhered to the window from the Viken laser cut sheet and the dark purple journal card from the Viken ephemera pack and then adhered to the page with foam tape in the centre leaving the outside open to tuck in flowers and add rub-ons later. I then layered the photo with the two different frames from the laser-cut sheet on top of the photo at angles. I then added layers of flowers and laser-cut pieces to the corners of the photo.

I added a butterfly rub-on from the 8×6 Viken rub-on pack over the washi tape. The clusters are made up of Viken Ephemera, laser-cut elements, Huckleberry Sugar Posies, and Fluff Sugar stems.

I have also added the leaves from the Sugar Stems flower pack. The title “memorable” is from the Ephemera pack. I have then used rub-ons from the 12×12 Viken rubon pack and cut out the bits that I wanted to use. I then placed these under my photo and rubbed them on, as shown in the photos below:

The “elastic band” on the frame is off the laser-cut sheets. There are just the cutest little butterflies and dragonflies on the laser-cut sheets, which I have added to my layout using glue on the body and foam tape under the wings to give them dimension.

I finished off tucking in the circle tag “magic” and the tab “loving life” (I sanded the edges) under the layers of the photos and frames. I also added the chipboard circle tag “just us two”.
