Hello, 49 and Market fans!

It’s mid-November and most of you are, for sure, thinking or working on Christmas projects. As you may have guessed by my mid-October’s project, I’m not classical when working on this time of the year layouts. I like to look for other colors, far from greens and reds. Of course, I love those collections (have you seen the wonderful Vintage Artistry Noel?) and encourage you to use them! But sometimes I prefer to give you inspiration using other colors in case you are in a hurry and don’t have the proper collection.

So this time, taking advantage of this gorgeous photo made by the photographer Anna Bondareva, I’ve created a layout using Vintage Artistry in Natural color and in browns and white. I enjoyed a lot playing with Natural washi strips to create a textured background. The most wonderful about them is that you don’t see they are there, but they do a lot on the layout. Afterward, I stamped here and there with a chocolate ink pad and used a stencil to create a kind of a brown shadow with a stencil and brown ink.

It was time to work with the chipboards. I painted them with a brown liquid ink from Stamperia. The jigsaw pieces were covered with texture paste and, when dry, I added some Antique gold wax with my finger. When everything was dry, I started to work on the composition. Firstly, I worked with the chipboards over the background, then the flowers, and finally, some touches with paper from the Ephemera stacks and Lacey trims.

The upper right side was a simple one this time, just to balance the whole composition. Again, I used frames, stacks, and wonderful flowers from different packs in browns and whites.
