49 and Market | ARToptions Spice | Part 3 | Giselle Homer
Today I’m sharing my 3rd layout using the 49 & Market ARToptions Spice collection. And showcasing these beautiful mixed media leaves designed with water colour effects in pink, green, orange & teal. What a great colour combination for autumn!
Using the packaging technique I began by adding some yellow & orange ink in the centre of the page. And I applied a Vintage Artistry Sunburst rub-on above that, slightly to the right.
I distressed the edges of my photo & backed it with patterned paper, glued it into place & added a phrase which I’d trimmed from the collection’s packaging. Then I placed some chipboard & paper die cuts, plus some small rub-on details on the right.
Next came the fun part! Trying to select just a few leaves from a big pack of 49 pieces & arranging them to cascade down the left hand side. I added some tiny rub-on flowers in some of the gaps.
Finally, I trimmed my white cardstock base to 11″ x 11”, distressed the edges & glued it to the patterned paper called Inverted Garden. And as a finishing touch, I put a small die cut flowers under two of the edges & drew 2 lines around the edge.
So, until next month, keep in touch on our Facebook page, we love seeing your layouts!
