Be proud of who you are by Valerie Ouellet

Hi 49andMarket lovers!

Today I would like to share with you a layout I did using the new 49andMarket collection “Cottage Life”. I used the B side of “Fresh Delivery” paper. I had fun working out my background with white only.

I have prepared my paper with Clear Gesso before stamping and using embossing powder. I used one of my favorite stamp “Faded Damask” that I embossed in white. Then, I added many drops of white ink.

To add texture, I glued some sequins and beads on my background with 3d Gel medium.

I used a 12×12 sheet of the Cottage Life “Watering the Garden”, to do some die-cuts.


I added some flowers to finalize my design.

Garden Bloom Alabaster and Blossom Blends Cotton.

BB-86141 Blossom Blends - Cotton

I added some 3d embellishments leaves and butterflies of “Cottage Life Layered Embellishments”.

See you later xxx
