Hello and welcome back 49 and Market friends. Today I have my next project to share with you. For this project today, which I have titled “Make A Wish”, I have gone back to my vintage roots where I started my crafting journey. For those that have known me this long, this is where I felt most at home. Something with a vintage feel. Of course this photo is not 100 years old, but the project itself would suit that with a vintage photo very well indeed. This is my project for today….
And because I am doing something vintage I have used 49 and Market’s Vintage Remnants Collection. Oh so many differing papers in this collection. So many to choose from and the background features in these papers are beyond amazing. I felt that they were so amazing that I did not add much at all but a little random stamping with some archival ink using Pascale’s Form Stamp. But because I am creating with a photo of my youngest daughter I decided on something pretty with a little bit of grunge to it. I chose to use the Vintage Remnants “Paper No. 05”. I used two sheets, the first of course for my background and the second was for the tearing of strips that I layered up with some old corrugated board. I used both sides for the layering and matting of my photo. All the layers were made more dimensional by the addition of some old board.
After I layered up all the layers of torn paper I embossed my string of hearts chipboard frame with gold embossing powder. I then inked the edges with a little ground espresso distress ink. After the ink dried completely I swiped over some acrylic paint in Dusty Pink. I repeated this step with the chipboard word also. My chipboard baroque corners were cut into little pieces and inked. The frame was added over and around the photo. I then added in all my pretty 49andMarket Florals. I have used a mixture for this project. To highlight the colours from the photo I decided to add in some Ecru Blossoms from the Vintage Shades older collections. I combined in some Blossom Blends and Garden Seeds using the vintage pinks and the lighter browns from these packs. I have also add in a couple of the mini Garden Seeds in Cotton. I tucked in the remaining chipboards amongst the clusters.
To complete my project I added in some gorgeous pieces from the Ethereal Layered Embellishments pack and some distressed sections of muslin. I also did some splatters of watered down gesso and colouring of the background with some of the Dusty Acrylic Pink paint. My last thing was the addition of the Lacey Trim in white. Sections of this made the photo pop a little more at the base. And that was that. My layout was complete.
