Hi there Audrey here with a Journal Beautiful Botanicals!!
Be still my beating heart!. The whole collection of the NEW Curators Botanicals is just divine. AND!!! News Flash!!! If you don’t know already know, the laser cuts that I always go on about in each post from 49 and Market can now be BOUGHT SEPERATE, SEPERATELY, sorry didn’t mean to yell!! 🤣 So both the New Curators Botanicals and the NEW ARToptions Avesta have separate laser-cut elements and the most beautiful Ephemera Bits to match each collection.
Here’s a little sample of the Botanicals in the form of a journal. I think I’ve used a little bit of every new product in the range and then some! From paper to rub-on transfers, fabric tape, washi, tags, ephemera…. what’s a girl to do!! I needed to show you a sample of every little bit of NEW product 49 and Market has to offer in this beautiful collection.
I love creating journals and especially junk journals and that’s where the inspiration for this one came from. I can’t very well call it a junk journal because it’s made from the most divine new stuff but in the style of a junk journal. It’s got flaps and hidden folds here and there for journaling and lots of room to add more rub-on transfers, washi tape, and even a postage stamp or a strip of them for colour. Another of the newest of products from 49.
I was heading away for a couple of weeks’ holidays and really wanted a journal for the holiday so when my design team samples arrived I instantly knew I was going to make a journal to bring rather than buy an already made one. I sewed 3 small signatures into this journal and secured them with the new cloth tape. I then proceeded to add extra folds here and there and decorated with lots of the new stitched washi. Yeah, it’s cheating in a way but boy does it look good and it saved so much time. I really don’t want to have to get my sewing machine out!! So look closely at all that stitching in the journal, it just may not exactly be stitching at all 😋😉😊
There is also a little video run-through of the journal to give you a bit more of an idea of how to pop one together.
I have added some lacey trim, muslin, tiny gold beads, lace, and ribbon to finish off.
