You can never have too much happy layout by Bridget Louw


#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts  

Hello crafty people, 
Bridget here with a single layout done with the fabulous Ooh La La range from Ultimate Crafts.
The range lends itself to vintage pictures and the photo of my mother as a toddler works perfectly with the colour scheme.


I have supplied the measurements etc below should you want to make a layout like this on.

To start off we used the Chocolate cardstock from Ultimate crafts as the base page.

To create the layers we cut as follows:
I trimmed 1/8” off each of the sides of the Baroque Bronze patterned paper and glued it to the Chocolate cardstock.
The next layer measures 8 ¾” wide x 7 ½” high using Wrapped in Gold patterned paper
Onto this, center a piece of Chocolate Swirls measuring 7 ½” high x 6” wide:
Create the photo mat 4 ¼” x 6 ¼” from Butterflies & Lace
These papers are all from the 12”x12” Ooh La La paper pad (ULT157600)
Before you stick the photo & photo mat down on the layout, place a piece of the lace across the center of the page and add a piece of the luscious velvet ribbon above it. Once this is done stick down the photo & photo mat.

To colour up the flowers, I put some water in a mister bottle, added some brown ink from a re-inker and then added some Anna Griffin Mix & Match Pigments-Brown. This made the most beautiful shimmery brown colour. Use this to mixture to colour up one of the Cottage Pollen Flowers.
Lightly sponged the same brown shimmer onto the edges of Paper Magnolias flowers.



While the flowers are drying make another batch of the Anna Griffin Mix & Match Pigments-Brown but do not add brown ink, this should make a lovely gold shimmery paint which must be applied to one of the beautiful heart shaped doilies.
Set aside to dry.



Die cut the following dies: (see which ones I have used from the photo above as the dies come in sets)
ULT157558 Intrinsic & Ornamental Set Die
ULT157568 Art Deco Border Set Die
I die cut them from plain white smooth cardstock as I wanted to ink them to get a slightly mottled effect.


Using the Happy Lives stamp set, cut a piece of Butterflies& Lace 2 1/8” x 1 5/8” and stamp the “happy” sentiment on it using black ink. Glue this to the ornate piece from the Intrinsic & Ornamental Set Die (see photo above)


For the metal butterfly, I used glue in all the wing recesses and then added Anna Griffin Fine Glitter Collection-Copper


Use the photo at the top of this post to place all the elements on the layout. Add some final touches using the beautiful pearls included in this range.
