Hello 49 and Market fans!
Living in a major tourist location of my country makes me realize more often than not how lucky I am! I live in a place people travel from all over the world to see. Table Mountain in Cape Town is very special to me and like most Capetonians, I also refer to Table Mountain as “my Mountain”! Beside the mountain’s wonderous beauty, there are a lot of activities in and around the mountain, from hiking to a cable car trip to take you to the top of the Mountain. On this day we were sitting at a harbor café drinking some wine, and just enjoying the glorious day. The new Vintage Artistry Travel Anywhere paper collection is perfect to showcase this special memory.
By now you know that I like a frame around my layouts. For the background I trimmed the “Vintage Artistry Anywhere – Edges” to 11,5” x 11,5” and distressed all the edges with my distressing tool. I adhered it to “Vintage Artistry Anywhere – Quest”. I chose “Edges:” because I wanted to create my own background with the amazing “Vintage Artistry Anywhere Rub-on transfers”.
I like the pink in the photo and used the “Vintage Artistry Anywhere – Atlas” to matt my photograph on. The “Vintage Artistry Anywhere – Fragments” and the back of the front page of the paper pack I cut into smaller pieces to layer with. I used my “postage stamp” punch to punch all around the edges of these layering pieces.
There is a film strip on one of the laser-cut sheets that I used and a chipboard film strip to add more detail to the layers behind the photo. I distress all the pieces with Distress Ink. Other elements from the laser-cut sheet include a pink cord and small cameras.
There is a little yellow in the photograph that I wanted to accentuate with yellow flowers. I also added blue ones and to complete the flower bouquets I added “Vintage Artistry Essentials – Foliage”. Just LOVE this product!
I also added some Art Stones and pink watercolor paint splatters randomly all over the page.
The sentiment banners and flags complete the Layout, they are all found in the “Vintage Artistry Anywhere Ephemera Bits”.
