“Amazing Moments” by Tina Ollett

Hello and a very big welcome to you today!

Tina O with you here ! It seems like a lifetime ago that it was, that I was last here, typing madly away to get my next 49andMarket creation in on time. I have been unable to scrap for the past two months due to shoulder surgery which unfortunately had left my arm in a sling for 6 weeks. But……. I am so very happy to say that everything is going well, although I still do have to be very careful until I have full use and strength back in my shoulder. So every day since, my sling has come off, I have sat at my table for only short periods to sometimes only sit and stare at my beautiful 49andMarket goodies. But after 6 long intermittent days of crafting I finally came up with this creation.

I am so happy to be back guys, I can’t tell you enough!! Thank you for waiting and being so patient with me Janene and Di !  You guys are just the best.

Ok enough about me and now back to the layout.

Even though I had the new collection of 49andMarket’s Rusty Autumn in my hot hands, I decided to keep creating with Cottage Life as I had in my head a little something that I had wanted to do with some cute photos of my youngest that I have never scrapped.

This has been titled …… “Amazing Moments”……..


For this layout I have simply torn layers of Watering the Garden papers and laid them across the middle of  Rooster Row. Red on red, I really didn’t think it would work but then I came across the pack of Dragon Revolutions 3D Embellishments. These come doubled up which is just perfect for taking apart and making them go further. To do this I layered the smaller circular embellishment over the larger and cut away the excess underneath to go around other sections of my page.

And how cute are these little spotted gum boots. These were cut from the cut out Cottage Life Sheet along with the barn which you can just see to the left behind the large photo.


And of course I have used the gorgeous gorgeous blooms from 49andMarket’s Blossom Blends to help with clustering of my flowers. All the flowers were dry brushed and treated with a little Distress Crackle Paint to help them shine! I used the colours Poppy and Cotton to compliment with my page and photos.

As you can see above I have also added in some Art Stones in differing sizes. These were coloured up with the Rust Paste and some Star Dust Stickles to add a little sparkle.

You can see below that I have also added in some paper doilies and of course Dusty Attic chipboards. These chipboards were all dressed with Gessoes, Rust Paste, Crackle Texture Pastes and Distress Crackles to give that rustic look. I broke the picket fence in half and extended from behind the photo framing to help elongate the page.

I have also added in some torn pieces of 49andMarket’s Burlap Trim. These pieces were tucked in and around sections of the beautiful flowers that I clustered together around the circular embellishment.
