Welcome 49 and Market friends. I hope this blog post finds you well.
Today I am sharing another project that I designed for 49 and Market’s stand at the recent CHA event.
This project I have titled “Timeless Love”.
“Timeless Love” has been created using 49 and Market’s Vintage Artistry’s Natural Colors Collection. For my background, I have used the patterned paper piece “Painted Ladies” Oh how I love this piece. It is beyond beautiful. All the delicate details are just spectacular. So I wanted to keep the detail and not cover this too much. So starting out I added in a little texture using the creative script stencil from Dusty Attic with white crackle paste and allowed this to dry. Next, I wanted to add highlights to help the gorgeous frame on the background to stand out a little more. So I decided to use a frame on the inside of the patterned paper. This Dusty Attic chipboard frame was coloured using Inka Golds and Liquid Pearls. I used another piece of the Vintage Artistry Colours Naturals, “Ecology”. I have used the b side of this paper to add a few layers of matting to lift my cute pic. This is a photo of our chocolate boy Rafael. He really is not allowed on our leather couch but the youngest daughter often insists that it is okay and he runs with it. But how could you get angry at a face like his?
I added in my photo and paper layers and then tucked the chipboard frame over and around the pic. Moving along I wanted to keep the butterflies at the right of the paper so I framed the bottom butterfly with a paper mould and coloured it using Finn’s Rust Pastes. I kept the layout flowing by using more of the moulds and in a couple of them, I tucked in 49andMarket’s Archival Boards from the “Timeless” collection pack. These were cut and coloured with mediums as you will see in the project.
I have used some older 49andMarket styled flowers. some being from the Mixology collections which I have hoarded because I love the deep richness of the mudslide colour which you can see in the project above and below. With the mudslide, I included some Garden Seeds in Sandcastle, Wildflowers in Mushroom and Country Blooms in White along with the soon to be released Fluff Sugar Stems. I absolutely adore these. They are just gorgeous and the extra amount of leaf green makes these packs a must-have for me. Once all my embellishing was done I finished up with the final touches of Art Stones and I added more green using some watercolour paints from my stash.
