"The best thing" The Scrapbook Store DTC


Hello and welcome back. Last month for the Scrapbook Store I was so extremely grateful to have received the gorgeous Maja Design "Vintage Romance" in my goodies box. I, unfortunately was sick for a good period of June and ran behind schedule......so I am here now trying to catch up.

This layout is titled "The best thing"......


I wanted to create something very soft and feminine for this layout to accommodate this photo of my two girls . So to do this I have used Maja's "Walk With Me" as my background piece and it has been given a wash with gesso in certain areas to add more softness to this gorgeous patterned paper, but also to allow the Dusty Attic chipboards to shine through.


Okay so I love to add in a little fussy cutting from time to time. To help keep my layout a little flatter than other creations I have refrained from using any other florals. 


These Dusty Attic Leafy Stems I would say would have to be a huge favourite. For this layout I have kept them quite soft adding a little Archival Potting Mix to the edges to help them pop a little more.


And I have added in some New Release Dusty Attic Sentiments Quotes.
This one reads:
"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other"
I think this fits quite nicely with the photo.










Here you can see that I have cut the frames from Vintage Romance's Love Notes patterned paper and layered them as matting. And of course I have added in a few more layers of dyed muslin, chipboard and some fussy cut elements.


And from a few more angles.


I have used half an ATC chipboard here to lift and highlight the Love Notes card and to add a little dimension. 



Well that is all from me today. I so hope that you have liked this project using Maja's Vintage Romance collection. There are so many more colours in this collection.......you will see in my next Scrapbook Store layout!! Stay tuned, until then happy scrapping.
