Hi guys! I'm back with another layout using Zinia's Sunny Memories for Pretty Little Studio.
The starting point for this layout was the gorgeous deep magenta colour that features in the collection. I pulled out a 3x4 card, a 4x6 clear card, a banner piece and some labels.
I used my craft knife to carefully cut around part of the design on the 3x4 card so my photo could slide underneath. I decided early in that staples would feature heavily in my design. I often hide my staples underneath layers but this time I wanted them showing. As I got further in I realised my stapler didn’t have the required reach so I added the staples first and then used tape or glue to attach the pieces where I wanted them.
My favourite thing to do with acetate is layer things both beneath and on top of it, and to use dimensional adhesive to add some height. I hid the majority of the dimensional adhesive behind the photo and flower but decided as it didn’t show too much that I would go ahead and add some to the corners too.
I used some tracing paper and a black pen to copy the floral design from the patterned paper, took a photo of it and converted it into a cut file. I cut three out from white cardstock and added them in which in my eyes brought the layout together.
