Hello lovelies

Oh my wow – I am so in love with the rich vibrant colours of the ARToptions Alena collection. I so loved putting this layout together with this beautiful new collection.

Picture perfect - Layout by Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

The base of the layout is the paper called Dramatic from the 12 x 12 ARToptions Alena paper collection. The frames around the photo are from the laser cut sheets. I adhered the photo to the red frame first and then added the dark green frame on top of the photo off side. Then I added two chipboard tags from the chipboard set behind the frame at the top centre. This was then adhered to the page with foam tape to the left side of the circle.

I then added a piece of “lace” from the laser-cut sheet under the photo and on top of the frame, as well as the “twine”. I then started adding laser-cut flowers and leaves, plus the stamps in layers around the photo.

I have added in some flowers (new release) – Salsa Florets – a perfect match for this collection.

I have added some chipboard elements like wording and the chipboard heart to the layout, including the title “picture perfect”. I have also added laser cut buttons and butterflies to the flowers and leaves.

I have added some rub-on leaves around the flower cluster. I also added some rub-ons down the side and a flower rub-on to the top of the page, where I added a chipboard tag (which I sanded on the edges) and added a chipboard word “find the joy”
