‘Amazing’ layout by Hetty Hall

Hi there 49 and market fans and welcome to the blog. Hetty with you today and I am really excited to share another layout with you.


I think and I am sure you would all agree that Janene designs the most amazing and stunning papers and I therefor don’t like to throw too much mixed media products on them but instead let the papers shine in their own right. I did however add some stamping to add some colour and to bring out the colours in the photo. I also often add cheescloth/muslin for texture but other then that keep it pretty simple.

Products Used:
– Vintage Artistry – Seeds of Love
– Jute Cording – Single Ply
– Burlap Net Ribbon
– Botanical Potpourri – Hazelnut
– Gabi’s Patterned Textures Stamp

Lots of extra texture was added with the burlap ribbon and jute cording. I love how the stamping brought out the colour in his pants.

All the gorgeous chipboard is of course from 2Crafty Chipboard, I painted them and added some wax to they would represent the boys glasses, hope I achieved that.

I also 3D’d the boy by fussy cutting a second photo and adding it on top of the original with foam tape, it kind of makes him pop out of the picture.

A small cluster of flowers and other embellishments in the top right corner gives the whole layout balance without covering up to much of the design on the paper.

Thanks heaps Janene for always designing the most gorgeous papers and if you have not had the pleasure of working with 49 and market papers yet you really should get some because not only are they beautifully designed they are so much thicker and sturdier then most papers on the market these days.

So there you have it, I hope I was able to inspire you and for you to get your craft on.

Thanks heaps for dropping in.

Until next time…..
