These Are Good Times - Layout by Lisa Gregory

Hello Beauties!
I am here to hopefully inspire you to create a new project using the gorgeous Vintage Artistry Teal collection. I have created a 12×12 layout and paired the Teal with Vintage Artistry Mango. The colors complement each other beautifully. The 12×12 Collection Pack has 2 sheets full of beautiful laser cuts. Flowers, frames, leaves, butterflies, and a beautiful 10 window door that I used on this layout. There is so much beauty in the 12×12 paper I chose, (Bloom), that I did not use any mixed media on this layout. It is all flowers, laser cuts and Rub – Ons. And don’t forget the little details that create a big impact. Like using acetate behind your frames or windows, and stringing some jute on to your laser cut tags. When you glue on the butterflies to your projects, only use glue on the body, so that you can lift the wings after it is dry. Remember the little things!

I mixed 2 different flower collections on this layout. I love the sweet ferns in Maura’s Vineyard, and the variety of Ginger flowers in the Country Blooms pack. I chose the laser cut word banners for my title, and tucked in some moss for a rustic garden look.

The Rub-Ons glide on like butter! And the doily design, is one of my favorites that you will find in each of the rub on packs. Here I used the mango color. I also rubbed on, some seed beads and butterflies. For the 10 window panel, I backed the window with some clear acetate for a more realistic look, and I used one of the bubbles and baubles to create a knob. The word on the knob is joy…

I clustered some of the things I would find in the woods behind my back yard, where the photo of my granddaughter was taken. Fern, moss, flowers, tiny plants and butterflies. These are a few of her favorite things…I ties some single ply jute around the photo before I adhered it to the photo, then topped off the bow with a laser cut bow.
