Hi there 49andMarket friends.
Tina with you today to share my newest project using 49andMarket’s fabulous Vintage Artistry in Coral from the Mini Collection.
I have used the “Love Letters” patterned paper as my base paper to start me off. It is so pretty. It was such a pity to put anything over it so I tried to go a little more minimally than my norm. I added in textures using Paper Texture Pastes through a stencil and I also added in some freehand crackle paste too. I did some random stamping using my favourite 49andMarket set at the moment, Snapshots of Yesterday.
This pretty photo of my gorgeous youngest daughter was used and to emphasize her more I have used two photos overlapping. Each photo was matted using the patterned piece “Fleur”. I have used it in such a way that the stitching on the paper frames the photo. If you look closely enough you may be able to see this. All the paper edges were distressed. I layered this up a little to allow room for the ephemera elements to be tucked in and around the project. In the mini collection, you will find not one but two sheets of laser cut ephemera elements. I love these sheets. They are stunning. From one sheet I have fussy cut an element. The large green leaves with rose heads. These were cut up into more sections and added into my clusters as well.
I have used a wooden fence piece that I textured with paper paste and art alchemy metallic acrylic paint. I then randomly added a little more gesso over the top to help with the shabby feel. I cut the piece in half and added it to either side of the photos. And once all my laser cuts were in place along with the Wildflowers in Tangerine and Scarlet I distressed some sections of the 49andMarket White Trim lace and added it to the project. Also, the barcode strip was used for my title at the bottom of the layout. The little butterflies from this strip were also cut and added to the project. Over some elements, I wiped some Ranger Star Dust Stickles to make it all shimmer and shine. I went back the next day and decided to add more of the elements from the laser cut sheets. This time around I used the gorgeously cute birds that you see at the bottom of the project. I also added in half of the largest butterfly to the right of the photos and to the right of the project.
