Today I bring you a new layout created with the gorgeous ARToptions Avesta collection. Talk about floral sprays!! This one has it all! And if you love the Rub-Ons, then you are in for a treat. The Avesta Rub-Ons are gorgeous. I used the 12×12 as well as the 6×8 sizes to create the background design on this paper. I used one of the solid designs for my base. It is the back of the Flutterbies paper. Sometimes it is so hard to choose which side to use because they are all beautiful. That’s when you buy 2!!
I did a little stitching around the 12×12 paper using green thread to offset all of the beautiful pink. I position where my photo is going to be, and worked the rub ons design around it. I mainly used the 12×12 size, and pieces of the 6×8 size to fill in smaller gaps around the main design. I also used the Ticket Express Stamp which is now retired, but if you have a small script stamp, you could use it as well. I used it for some added texture around the perimeter of the rub on designs.
The frame is in the Avesta Laser Cuts collection It has a layered look and the larger one is attached to the smaller one. All I had to do was add a photo. I created a wreath using the single ply jute and some leaves and flowers. I added the sweet laser-cut bow on the top. On the bottom, I used one of the sentiments from the Avesta Chipboard set. I tucked in a couple of the laser-cut stamps and added the sweet little butterflies. The photo is of my sweet granddaughter when she was about 8 months old. Sitting in a field of digital tulips!! Hey, I manipulated the photo to match the papers!
There are so many 49 and Market flower collections that go so beautifully together. The Royal Posies and Royal Spray Passion Pink and the Majestic Bouquet Tomato is one example of a perfect combo. I tucked in some laser-cut leaves as well as the leaves in those flower collection packs.
Here is the other side of the floral clusters. I love the color Tomato. It is a beautiful red that is more in the deepest orange range. Yes, like the color of a juicy ripe tomato! The color just pops off of the page among all of the pinks. To finish off the page, I added a few art stones, coloring them in a coral color, and then splattered some white paint over the page for a beautiful distressed look.
