Don’t Cry because…..

Hello, today I am here to share with you, a LO I did, combining 49 and Market, Flower Fairies of Spring Collection, with the Heirloom Botanicals Collection….


The 49 and Market used:

The Dusty Attic used: Antique Frame, Skeleton Clock Face, Fancy Trim #2, Ferns, Swirly Vine #2, Tropical Foliage #5, Mini Marrakesh Trellis, Don’t Cry because…., Dusty Attic Pearls

Other elements used: Clear gesso, Clear crackle paint, Shimmerz Inklings-Greener Pastures,Honeymoon, Chocolate & Diamonds, & Sheer Bliss, VersaColor ink pad-Pinecone

Here are some close ups….


For the background, the bottom layer  is passage, the next layer is Faded Bloom( I cut out the inside, of the 2 under layers, because you only see the outside edges) distressed the edges, & inked the edges using the Inklings-Honeymoon, then glued these pieces on to old paper, I had in my stash. The next layer is the BS of “With Love” from the Flower Fairies Collection, I also distressed & inked the edges. The final layers on the background are the top & the bottom, I cut the outside edges of the Sanctuary sheet at a angle, distressed & inked the edges, glued it down, on the outside edges, so I can tuck something under…


I love 49 and Market products, what a perfect match these Shimmer and Shine Blooms, are for this paper Collection!!!! In the cluster I used Shimmer and Shine-Lilac Fleur Des Champs, Lilac Jarden Secret and Dusty Attic Ferns & Tropical Foliage…


I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, then applied clear crackle on to some of the chipboard pieces. I let the crackle dry, then painted the pieces with Shimmerz Inklings-Greener Pastures for the green used, Honeymoon for the purple used, Chocolate & Diamonds for the brown. I used the sheer bliss to tone down the colors, inked the edges with the pinecone ink pad, I also used the ink pad on the title…


Glued the fancy trim under the angled pieces on the top & bottom, & the trellis, that I had glued pearls on….


Love, love the suitcase & the clocks from the cut out sheet. I Painted the clocks with clear crackle paint…


The photo was matted with the remains from the Sanctuary sheet, then framed with the Antique Frame…

Here are a few more close ups…..





Thank you so much for taking the time to look….Rachelle
