Using Overlays

Overlays can add a luxurious feel to a layout and this 12×12 acetate overlay from the Lulu and Roy collection adds real impact to my layout.

Using overlays can feel a little scary as adhering it to the background needs a little forethought. I wanted to cluster my photo and embellishments and these areas are ideal for hiding the adhesive.

I normally have to connect my elements together, so I really had to break out of my comfort zone and create two distinctive areas on the layout. The border pieces from the 6 1/2″ paper pad forms the basis of this grouping. I added pieces from the collectables layering several altogether and mixing them in with punched leaves and stickers. I added more flags below the border and topped it off with a new Bijou  Button – Utterly Butterfly.

To give some balance to the layout, I replicated the embellishment cluster around my photo.

I hope that you’ll enjoy the Lulu and Roy collection as much as I did!
