Guest Designing for Pretty Little Studio

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.
