Hi, Audrey here to share a creation using 49 and Market’s beautiful products from the NEW ArtOptions Viken Collection, with a hint of Spectrum Sherbet Tidal Wave product. Which I must say blended beautifully with Viken.
I started with a plain white base as I wanted to showcase the beautiful ARToptions Viken 12×12 Rub on Transfers. Well!! they ended up being covered every so slightly but were a great base for my layout in the end and I didn’t need to tuck too many rub-ons here and there once finishing off because small amounts of the original ones peeked through perfectly.
Using the ArtOptions Viken Ephemera Bits I chose the large ledger paper sheet in the deep purple colour. I glued this in place then layered other sheets from the pack followed by the fussy cut ledger piece from the ArtOptions Viken 12×12 Collection Pack. I really don’t like fussy cutting so I chose the larger pieces and the butterflies. Give me the laser-cut pieces any day lol!! Lucky for me I used a combination of both here.
I matted my photo on white card. The piece has been cut using a die-cut, that’s how the little stitching is done on the edge. I added mounting tape to the back of the Arched doors from the Ephemera Bits pack and stuck it in place. Positioned the matted photo and stuck that in place. The little ornate frame is also from the Ephemera Bits. I added foam tape to the back of this and stuck it in place.
From the ARToptions Viken 6×8 Rub-On Transfer Set I chose the ‘Stay Here’ words and rubbed them onto some acetate, cut it to size and suck it over the ornate frame.
Yes, I know I complain about fussy cutting!! And can’t quite believe I did so much for this layout, but I loved the images and if I was, to be honest, it was just a tad relaxing. So I did some more! I did have to put a stronger pair of glasses on to do so, but I got there, in the end, 😁 and before I knew it I’d cut everything out. I glued the larger floral piece to the bottom right of the ornate frame and evenly tucked the leaves and extra flowers around the photo and center layered card. I then chose matching coloured leaves from the Spectrum Sherbet – Tidal Wave Laser Cut Elements and evenly glued them in place. I then tucked some Spectrum Sherbet – Tidal Wave Laser Cut flowers here and there, to the left of the photo, some to the front, and some tucked behind and between layers. I then added some laser-cut leaves from the same pack here and there, followed by some fussy-cut flowers.
I used the hot glue gun to add the butterflies, some fussy cut, some laser cut, and some acetate butterflies from the Spectrum sherbet – Tidal Wave Acetate Leaves pack. To finish I used the word ‘Happiness’ from the waste strip of a 12×12 sheet of paper below the photo and dotted some extra rub-ons from the ArtOptions Viken 6×8 Rub-On Transfer Set here and there.
