“Dream – Always” by Di Garling



Hi there lovelies. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Today I have  layout featuring yours truly, to share with you, that I created using this gorgeous “Specimen” paper from the 49 and Market “Vintage Artistry” collection. I have done a small amount of mixed media on it but I wanted to let it stand alone because it has some lovely soft & subtle details that were just too good to cover up. I have also cut up some pieces of the Vintage Artistry “Flora & Fauna Cut Out” paper and used these in my layers.

These stunning butterflies were also cut out of the “Fauna & Flora Cut Out” paper too.

I have used lots of various flowers from the 49 and Market flower collections, all are listed below. They all compliment each other perfectly & have such a rustic feel.

I think the highlight of my layout would have to be these beautiful fern fronds, which were also  cut out of the “Flora & Fauna Cut Out” paper too. They really are quite spectacular & well worth the effort of cutting them out.

I have stamped along the top & bottom edges with the 49 and Market “Gabbi’s Line Stitch Stamp Set”. It looks so realistic, just like real stitching, with such great detail too.

Now all these amazing small green leaves were stamped with a leaf stamp from the “Gabbi’s Texture Stamp Set” & then cut out. I think they are the perfect partnering with all the flowers & they have really nice detail too.

You will see me using this leaf stamp often, now that I have discovered this stamp set. I love them.  🙂 🙂

Now I have also used some of the “Burlap Ribbon in Natural”. I pulled several 1 metre strands off  the roll & then just laid  all the loops of it, underneath my photos & flowers, for added texture. I think this works really well. I also tied a large bow using three more strands of the burlap, which I have placed  amongst the flowers to create some more fabulous texture.
