Hello, 49 and Market fans!
Antonia with you today sharing a new layout. Have you seen that I’ve hosted the August challenge? As I liked a lot the sketch, I decided to use it again for my monthly layout and I did this one I show you today. Does it seem different? This may be because I flipped it 90 degrees so it shows in vertical instead of horizontal. I just used one photo (made by the awarded photographer Claudia Marzo – @claumarzophotography).
Remember that, when working with a sketch for a challenge, you can adapt it to your way of working, so it can be flipped, rotated, or even change the number of photos and embellishments.
Just for you to compare with my previous layout, I used the VA Everyday collection along with the VA Anywhere collection laser cuts. Instead of using a background with color, I preferred to use plain color papers, so I could work with them a little bit more. To do so, I first distressed and glued down my paper layers to create the composition and used the same papers to mat the photo.
When this was done I chose the same new range of flowers and the same colors (Posies and Majestic in Ivory color). But this time I decided to use Layered embellishments to combine with those flowers. My fave is Wander, which is about trips and adventure, and that has some leaves awesome for this project. I thought it was done, and let the layout rest during the night in order to take some photos in the morning. But sunlight told me that it was not enough. The layout was asking for some more texture. And so I took rub ons to add to the background, here and there.
To finish the project I added some Wishing bubbles around.
