Hello 49 and Market fans!

I have created a layout using the older but still beautiful Vintage Artistry Sky Collection. For this layout, I used the Collector paper. The background of this paper is stunning.

This is a photo of my daughter I took some year ago.

On the left side of the background, I used a strip of Curators Essential 4″ Fabric Tape in Vintage Plaid. The fabric tape is repositionable and very easy to use and creates a great look.

I layered my matted photo on pieces from the V/A Teal Ephemera Stack, V/A Everyday Ephemera Stack, V/A Natural Collage Stack, and the Curators Essential Remnants. The banners under the photo and top right corner are from the V/A Natural Collage Stack.

Next, I added rub-ons from the V/A Sky/Navy and Curators Botanical 6×8 Botanical Rub-on Transfer set. The coffee stains are gorgeous. I used a variety of pretty blooms, and die cuts to create the flower clusters. The edges of the flowers were dry brushed with white gesso and
acrylic paint.

The final touches to this layout included wishing bubbles from the V/A Teal collection. I also added splatters with diluted white gesso.
