Hello, 49 and Market fans!
Happy New Year! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas Time with your beloved. I’m more than pleased to share my works with you all one more year. Thank you for coming to read these posts and read about how we create our projects. Maybe you don’t know, but Christmas Time goes from 20 Dec. to 10th January in Spain, as there are still some holidays at the beginning of the year. That’s why I decided to create this layout focused on Christmas to start my year with 49 & Market.
As you may know by now, the first thing I do in order to create my projects is looking for a captivating photo and checking which are the best 49 & Market collections to work with. Some weeks ago I asked Chloe’s mum to lend me two of her photos (made by Montse , and this wonderful one stole my heart. I wanted to work with whites and reds, so I took the Christmas collection and white flowers from my stash to start working. I doubted about using a red or a kind of a white background, and finally went for this option.
I love to mix and match collections so for this purpose I used a paper from In the Leaves collection for the background -did you see how versatile it is?? – and laser cuts from the christmas collection. First thing was adding some glitter to that paper by using texture paste through a stencil and adding some glitter embossing powder onto it. This gives a great surface over which to work.
When the texture paste was dried, I started layering flowers in two colors. When it came to add the photo, I wasn’t sure about how to mat it. Finally I decided to go with a wooden frame, new release! It’s really awesome, you won’t want to miss it! Then added some other laser cut elements here and there. Rub ons are one of my fave lately and didn’t want to go without them on this project, so I took some white ones. To finish my project, I added some wishing bubbles, art stones and gold ink splashes.
