My heart – Layout by Adri du Preez

Hello, 49 and Market fans!

Welcome to the blog today.

For this layout, I used the Painted Foundations Array paper from the beautiful Spectrum Gardenia 12 x 12 paper collection.

Here is my layout.

I matted the photo on a piece of Solids Paper 2. For the layering of matted the photo, I selected elements from the Ephemera Bits, General, and Essential Laser Cut Elements. These two sets are filled with amazing laser cut elements. The notebook piece at the bottom of the photo is from the Curators Meadow Ephemera Bits and the black piece with the white script at the top of the photo is from the V/A Country Side Ephemera bits. It is amazing how you can mix and match all the different collections. I used the black and red striped tags from the Ephemera Bits to make banners.

To create the layered cluster used pieces from the Ephemera Bits, General, and Essential Laser Cut Elements. I used a beautiful butterfly from Butterfly Laser Cut Elements, and a word strip and hearts included in the Ephemera bits. I raised the butterfly with foam tape. I also used a red photo wrap from the ARToptions Holiday Wishes laser cut elements.

The Spectrum Gardenia collection includes a packet of beautiful chipboard bits and words, and I have glued some of them to my photo and layout as well as elements from the Ephemera Bits and washi tape stickers. For the title, I used the words My Heart from the chipboard word set.

I cut the red lace included in the Essential Laser Cut Elements into pieces and glued it next to the faux stitching on the Array paper as well as some word strips.

The flower clusters are made up of a variety of pretty blooms, some old and new ones, Leaves, and Floral Laser Cut Elements. I used the B-side of the Painted Foundations Color Wheel paper and Solids Paper 2 for a few die cut leaves. I also glued the word You onto one of the flowers.
To finish off my layout I added some beautiful epoxy coated sticker embellishments from the Wishing Bubbles and Baubles, Washi Tape stickers, and a few butterflies from the Essential Butterflies 01 Rub-On Transfers. I then added splatters with diluted white gesso and black ink.
