Explore – Layout by Nicole Santos

Hey all! Nicole here with a new project using the Vintage Artistry Nature Study collection. I have this picture of a little stream that I found on vacation up in Flagstaff, AZ and the setting sun made an amazing backdrop to it. I knew this new collection would be perfect for this photo! I also decided to use the June sketch from 49 & Market to set this page up as well!

I used the Foliage Rub-on Transfer Set to add some paint splotches onto the background of my Foundations 1 paper to start my layout. For the right side I used a scrap of the black and white paper from the 6×8 Collection Pack and tore it a bit to give it some more interest. Then I used 1/2 of a wreath, a branch, a flower, a bow, and a butterfly, all from the General Elements laser cuts, to this side of the page to make a small cluster.

To the lower right of my photo I built up the biggest cluster on the page from a bigger floral piece and a frame stand from the General Elements. I then placed my title, EXPLORE, on the top, which I got from the Chipboard Word Set. I also added another branch and butterfly here as well.

I added my last cluster to the top left of my photo. My photo is also matted with paper from the 6×8 Collection Pack as well. I have a little branch, floral element, and butterfly in this cluster as well. I then added phrases and hearts from the Chipboard Word Set to finish off my page.
