Easy Layout by Bridget Louw

Hi Bridget here again with a quick layout, using an assortment of wonderful Couture Creations products.

I made this layout in just a few hours thanks to Couture Creations products. I was inspired by a beautiful layout I saw on the Internet.

I started by heat embossing a doily stamp onto the top of the layout. Once it had cooled I laid down some of the gorgeous Gem Stones. Using the paper piercer from the Handheld Essentials set (C0721986) works brilliantly for placing the Gemstones.


Using some of the patterned paper I made a mock Instagram frame. I cut a piece of paper 3 ¾” x 4 ½” and using the 2nd largest die from the Nesting Dies: Square (C0723042) I cut out the window. I then placed my photo behind that.

I cut out one of the beautiful new doily dies from the Fantasia Collection called Celestial (C0723220) which comes with ejection foam.

I then painted my chipboard elements using white acrylic paint, and once dried sprayed it with some white Glimmer Mist.

I cut a 2” x6’ strip from another patterned paper and ran it through the embossing folder using the Poetry Embossing Folder (C0723825). I also cut a fish tail on one side to make it into a banner piece.

My favourite part of this layout was colouring the flowers. I sprayed them all in various colours of glimmer mist but wanted them less bold and more shabby chic. So I made a puddle of white paint and a blob of Glitzin Glamour – Crystalina (C0721971). I took a paint brush and dry-brushed white paint on the petals and using another brush lightly coated some glitter on it. This glammed them up but also toned down the bright colours.


I then assembled the layout using Foam Mounting Tape (C0721963) and double sided tape (C0721984).
