“Life is Beautiful” by Tina Ollett

Welcome and happy new year to you!

Tina with you today to bring you the first of my creations using the gorgeous 49andMarket’s “Vintage Artistry” collection. This is titled “Life is Beautiful”.


Okay so admittedly I am a huge Vintage Artistry lover. I simply cannot get enough of the earthy tones. So once more I am here using this wonderful collection coloured up with some peachy cuteness from another of 49andMarket’s gorgeous collection Heirloom Botanicals.


It was simply the addition of these gorgeous little suitcases from Heirloom Botanicals Cut Outs Paper Pack that lead to this colour addition to my page. You can see this pretty paper here below.



And in so changing my layout to combine these peachy tones I added in some of my fave Rustic Blooms coloured with paints to co-ordinate.


 I love the addition of fussy cut pieces. Just makes a layout I think! I have cut two sections of these vines from Vintage Artistry’s “Laws of Nature” which you can see here below. The remaining pieces were used as matting layering up of my photo.


My background paper “Botanical Press” was treated with a dressing of clear gesso and Crackle texture paste through a new release Dusty Attic stencil “Woodgrain”.



And below all the beautiful, beautiful, beautiful floral  blooms that were added to this.
