Hi there 49 and Market Creatives!
This time I wanted to preserve this old traveling memory. I stumbled on this photo taken almost 21 years to the day and thought the Vintage Artistry Anywhere 12×12 Collection pack is perfect for it. My sister and I visited New York in 2000 and it was such fun! I cherish this memory and this collection has all the elements to create a beautiful layout. Isn’t it wonderful? No need to look elsewhere! 49 and Market’s flowers, embellishments, and rub-on transfers are amazing!
The background is created on the turquoise “Journal Cards” and I trimmed the “At the Coire” sheet and punched the edges all around with my postage stamp punch to repeat the design of the photo frames. I chalk the edges of the frames with Vintage Photo Distress ink. The embellishment ensemble is created with flowers, a rose gold arrow clip, and elements from the laser cut sheet included in the collection pack. The Guiney Fowl feather was added as a special little detail.
A closer look at how the rose gold arrow paper clip keeps the paper elements in place. The beautiful Salmon flowers are from the “Enchanted Petals” collection.
I inserted real eyelets into the 3 tags, chalked the edges, and adhered them in layers behind the photo frames. The grey and white baker’s twine is threaded through the eyelets.
A second flower and embellishment collage is created on the other side of the layout. I used various rub-on transfers to fill blank spaces on the background paper. Text, arrows, and splatters. And another Guiney Fowl feather! I quite like to use them on layouts!
I found some arrows on the barcode strips of the paper and fussy cut them. The title is the word “Adventure” from the laser cut sheets and the arrows point to the title. I darkened the word “Adventure” a little with a grey Copic Marker to make it stand out more. You will also see an old favorite of mine: Champaign: All-Purpose Ink platters randomly in the background.
I added more rub-on transfer arrows at the bottom of the photo focal point to repeat the arrows from the top. I also added a few glazed dots from the Anywhere Wishing Bubbles and Trinkets pack.
And that is it! Quick and easy with 49 and Market!
