Happy by Rachelle Sigurdson

Hello, today I am here to share with you, a LO I did “Happy”, using 49 and Market’s New Summer releases Cottage Life, Layered Embellishments & the beautiful flowers that go with this Collection, I went with the blues & greens in this Collection….

The 49 and Market Products used:

Cottage Life

Flowers-Summer 2017

Textures

Other Elements used: Dusty Attic Chipboard: Word Tags #2, Mini Tags, Mini Tabs #5, Mini Chicken Wire, Scribble Frame, Happy, Burlap Twine, Versamark ink pad-pinecone

Here are some close ups….

For the background I used Cottage Cut Outs-BS. I cut out the inside of Garden Seeds-BS, leaving 1 inch on the outside edges, distressed the edges & glued this piece onto the background. Using a paper pierce I poked in holes for hand stitching. I then hand stitched using single ply burlap twine. Once I completed the hand stitching, I looped under the stitches to add more dimension…..

I kept the chipboard simple, I just inked the pieces using Versa Mark Ink Pad-Pinecone….

I matted the photo using Provence-BS, distressed the edges, did hand stitching, then glued it on to the burlap trim….

I wrapped jute cording around the photo..

Shows more paper layers using Provence 8×8, Provence-BS & Garden Seeds-BS. Also shows a flower cluster using Layered Embellishments, Blossom Blends, Garden Seeds, Seaside Blooms, Floral Mixology & Dusty Attic mini Tags…

In this flower cluster I used Cottage Blooms, Blossom Blends, Floral Mixology, Layered Embellishments, Cut Outs, Jute & a Dusty Attic Tag…

I glued a couple of pieces of mini chicken wire & scribble frame into the layers…

Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle
