Hey, friends!! I'm back today to share a new layout for A Flair For Buttons. I used flair from three different sets: Hello Life, Black Marquee Lights & Summer Gold. I decided to scrap some photos of a few Las Vegas views from one of our trips out there a few years ago. I'm always amazed at all the hotels and all the beautiful mountains. We have zero mountains in Florida, so they are a treat to see. I pulled out a very old Lily Bee patterned paper to use as my background. I covered a large portion of it with white acrylic paint and then came in with some Shimmerz and watercolor paints. I wanted to pull out the blues from the photos. I also had to add lots of gold. Because Vegas is flashy and glittery, and I can't make a page about Vegas without that! :D
I've been hoarding my gold flair buttons! This airplane was perfect for this page since we flew out there. Planes are the perfect embellishment for a travel layout. Here you can see some of the watercolor work. I used some cheesecloth behind my photos as well as some pop dots. The dimension is incredible! I just love it. I also added in some shiny gold thread.
This marquee LOVE flair just screams Vegas to me...the flashy lights and big letters! I used a few cut apart labels from Evalicious here and added some gold MAMBI alpha and star stickers. I used shiny gold thread to machine stitch and to create a nest for the flair. I used some Dear Lizzy washi tape and a few Tim Holtz word stickers. And I broke out my hoarded gold glittery Thickers, too!
Since I had a bit of green going on in the layout, this flair was a perfect choice. I cut "vegas" on my Cameo in a yellow Lily Bee paper and then coated it with Heidi Swapp gold texture paste. I just love this font...it's called Shoreline. It's the perfect scripty font, I think! And I love this gold color up against the pretty blues.
Here's a good shot of the background work...lots of Kuretake watercolors & Shimmerz with some Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine. I seriously cannot get enough of gold glitter...
Here's one more close up of the top area. More washi tape, stickers and stitching. I love how the white paint faded away some of the background circles.
Here are the flair sets I pulled from:
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
