“Love” by Tina Ollett

Welcome 49andMarket friends. Tina with you today sharing my next project using the gorgeously beautiful Sweet Reflections collection along with coordinating flowers and archival boards.

This is


This photo of my eldest daughter was taken, no not by me, but by my youngest daughter. The instant it was taken the girls were up the stairs to show me. They knew that I would be very keen to use this photo and so I was. The stream of sunlight coming through the bushes was pure luck the girls said. No photoshopping needed.

For this project I didn’t use very much on my background page just some splatters of white gesso and a little texture paste through a Dusty Attic stencil. I focused on the gorgeous music notes that are already on Singing the blues…… I also used a second piece of this and used it for the matting of my photo which I layered up along with some beautiful pieces of Dusty Attic circle frames and the 49andMarket Archival Board “Love”.

From the Archival Board I used the word and the bricks along with the vines and key. These were all inked with Frayed Burlap and then coated with a little shimmer.

I used the 49andMarket vine and coloured it up a little with some sweet shimmery paint to make it pop. I also added in some of the new deliciously beautiful Stargazers in the colour of Periwinkle perfect for this project.

To finish my project I added in some moss and draped over the vine and moss a little frayed muslin as you can see above.

Well that is all from me today. I do hope that this blogpost has found you happy and well. Until next time happy creating and take care.
