“Sparkle” by Valia Katzaki

Hello 49 and Market friends!

It’s Valia Katzaki on the blog today to share another mixed media layout made with 49 and Market products.


Heirloom Botanicals is my new favorite collection! I love the rich, warm colors and there are tons of designs to choose from for your backrgounds, from sweet and shabby to artsy ones, perfect for your mixed media projects.

For my monthly layout, I decided to feature a mixed media layout on a sweet, shabby and flowery paper, the “Faded Bloom”.

49 and Market papers are so thick and sturdy, you don’t have to worry, no matter how many media you put onto them! On this layout, I went to town with mists, picas, pigments and 3d gloss gel for my background! Absolute no paper warping!


I combined Basic Multi Lavender and Basic Multi Melon flowers for my cluster. All 49 flowers mix very well together and are a perfect addition to the 49 paper collections.


I fell in love with the subtle watercolor roses! Classy and elegant and oh so sweet!
