You’re the Best – Layout by Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

Hello there 🙂

I just can’t get enough of this Vintage Artistry Serenity Collection, so I created another layout using these fabulous products. Here is my layout:

You're the Best - Layout by Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

I have used the Vintage Artistry Serenity Brief Glimpse paper out of the 12×12 collection pack. The photo is then matted onto the Serenity Solids no 3 paper from the 12×12 Vintage Artistry Serenity Solids collection pack. Behind this, I have added distressed layers of pieces from the Serenity Ephemera and Serenity Remnants pack. I also cut a banner strip from the Serenity paper called Fluttering Trio and added this behind the matted papers. I also cut a ticket in half and created banner points and added this next to the paper banner. Plus I cut a paper “frame” in half (from the laser cut pieces) and added these in the flower cluster and at the corner of the banners.

I fussy cut leaves from the bonus paper of the Serenity collection pack – which is on the reverse side of the cover paper in the pack. I have layered these, with laser cut flowers and tickets. The bow is made from the Single Ply Jute Cording, making a triple bow, adding this to the flower and leaf cluster, and adding on the chipboard title “You’re the Best”.

I have added bits of rub-ons (butterflies and splotches, as well as foliage) from the 6×8 rub-on transfers pack – the wording “loved” comes from the 12×12 Serenity Sentiments Rub-on pack.
I have also added butterflies – these I have given a dimensional effect – by adding glue down the centre of the body, and foam tape to the wings, close to the body. The closer the foam tape is added to the body, the more the wings will raise off the page.

I finished off the layout by adding little bits out of the Ephemera pack, like the heart buttons, some wording, and the frame.

Thanks for popping over to see the blog today. I will be back later in February, featuring a layout created using one of the new collections recently released.
