Today I bring to you a layout created with the Vintage Artistry Blush Collection. It is truly gorgeous, with the lightest pale pinks, to the explosions of vibrant pink. The beauty of this collection is the laser-cuts that come with the 12×12 collection. So easy to punch them out, and add them to your projects! To the gorgeous background paper, once I added the layered and matted photo and windowpane, I added bubbles and baubles, the fabulous Rub-Ons, stamping, and a bit of splattering. The papers are so detailed and gorgeous, you really don’t have to add anything!! But once you start building on to the design, you just can’t stop!!
I always save the strips that I cut off of the bottom of the 12×12 papers. There is always an awesome design on one side. I added a laser cut design to a piece of the strip, cut a leafy vine and butterfly from the 6×6 paper pack, and added it to the cluster. The tiny heart is in the blush Bubbles and Baubles set.
I tucked some of the laser-cut butterflies into the floral clusters. The sugar posies in Tutti Frutti and the Enchanted Petals in Flamingo are the perfect colors for the Blush papers. I used one of the laser cuts for the title of my photo. I created a small bow from the single-ply Jute and glued it below the corner of the photo.
To add real dimension to the laser cut window pane, I backed the windowpane with a piece of acetate, then built up the layer with strips of heavy chipboard around and in between each pane. Then I temporarily laid it on the background where I wanted it and marked each part of the middle of each window, where I place a butterfly. I adhered only the body of the butterflies then lifted the butterfly wings for dimension. Then I carefully adhered the window pane over the butterflies. It truly looks like a window. Or a shadowbox! Either way, I love it!!
