Hello 49 and Market Fans,
Today I get to share a layout of us heading off on a vacation. Borders are not open yet but we can travel within Australia, we took the opportunity to go “up north” to Broome. We were so excited for many reasons, one, because we were able to travel and two, because it was the first time we have been away together all three of us. Beforehand it was Ky and me or Anthony and Ky, this time was family time. These photos were taken at the airport and inside the plane! Vintage Artistry Anywhere collection is just perfect for our trip photos.
I have also used this month’s sketch challenge as a jumping-off platform to start my layout.
To enter for your chance to win one of two 49 and Market prize packs, load your take on the challenge into the May file section on Facebook HERE.
I have used three different papers from the 12×12 Collection pack which includes the amazing laser cut pieces. The main piece is actually the reverse of the collections cover page, one thing I adore about 49 and Market designs is that nothing is wastage, even the cut-off barcode strips have patterns or words to be used on the opposite side. “Quest” in the dark blue background paper and “At the Core” is the green central piece.
I have used the 4×6 frame from the Laser cut sheet with the gorgeous elastic string effect, however, I cut my photo down and added a reverse piece of paper from the “At the Core” paper, and added an array of different rub ons like the compass rose, arrows and We’re going places words. I have then fanned out three smaller photos underneath and added the “Away We Go” chipboard sticker.
I have then used Washi tape on the bottom of the middle green section and rub on transfers at the top. I have then added some notepaper punched edges with the dark blue underneath to mimic the sketch adding some more rub ons as I go.
The ephemera stack pieces have been layered with frames, tags, and “enjoy the Journey” along with some of the laser cut pieces. The love heart is from the Wishing bubbles and trinkets pack along with the three green epoxy dots on the left hand side to balance the composition of the green colour. I have used lots of the border-type rub-ons around the edges of the page.
The final touches are the amazing NEW flowers Royal Spray in Ocean Jade and Royal Posies in Midnight with some Essentials epoxy leaves and jute.
