My Big Sister – Layout by Adri du Preez

My Big Sister - Layout by Adri du Preez

Hello 49 and Market fans!
Today I have a layout of my precious grandchildren, Janco and Mila. These two are best friends and love each other dearly.
I used the Curators Botanical Les Fleurs Paper for the background of this layout. To create the strip in the middle, I used the Curators Essential 4″ Washi Tape Adverts. The layers were created using offcuts from the ARToptions Avesta collection Butterfly Kisses, Sweet Romance, and Flutterbies papers. I distressed and inked the edges. An edge from the Curators Essential Laser Cut Elements was also added.
Here is my layout.

Next, I added rub-ons from the Curators Botanical 6×8 Botanical and the ARToptions Avesta 6×8 Rub-on Transfer Sets.

The matted photo is layered on pieces from the Curators Essential Remnants. They have the most amazing edges. ARToptions Avesta laser-cut elements and Curators Botanical ephemera bits were also used.

For the flower clusters, I used a variety of pretty blooms, laser cuts, and die cuts. The Majestic Bouquet Mango flowers were painted with a thin layer of Americana Acrylic Paint in Peaches ‘n Cream. The edges of the flowers were dry brushed with white gesso and acrylic paint. I added a V/A arrow clip and a few Dusty Attic chippies. I also used wishing bubbles from the V/A Sage collection.

Also included in the layout are beautiful ARToptions Avesta chipboard elements.

To finish off my layout I added glass beads, glitter, and splatters with diluted white gesso.
