Hello beautiful friends.
Today I bring to you a layout created from the Vintage Artistry Everyday Collection. I love that this collection has paper and laser cuts. You really don’t have to add to much more for the finishing touches! I used some of the gorgeous Rub-Ons around the layout. I also did a small amount of stenciling with texture paste and watered-down distress paint. I did a bit of machine sewing around the 12×12 paper, and a couple of the frames, as well as around the cutout of the butterflies. I show you a quick tutorial on how to do this cut-out technique.
Here is a closeup of the cutout butterflies and the floral cluster. I used the Sugar Posies in Fluff and colored them with watered-down distress paint. I also added a few of my own die-cut leaves as fillers.
I tucked in a few mini flowers in Mushroom. They are awesome as fillers for tucking into floral clusters. I scattered some Bubbles and Baubles around the page. I added some art stones and paint spatters to top of the finished layout.
For my title, I used the brand new Word Clips! They are going to be awesome in mini albums and junk journals, but I found this one perfect for my title. “Perfect”. I just clipped it on like a paper clip. I cut a couple of pieces of Washi tape to tape down my photo.
Here are the quick instructions for achieving the cut-out butterfly technique. So simple, but adds such a big beautiful impact on the layout. I imagine you could do this with flowers on your paper as well.
