LOVE IS THE MASTER KEY 

today I am showcasing the vintage artistry in the sage range …

 totally in love with this collection .. I began this LO by choosing a quote . 

I have done journaling since I was a teenager and I truly  believe journals can keep us positive and aware of our thoughts and emotions.

I  begin each day by reading a positive affirmation and popping it where I can read it throughout the day reminding me to be conscious of my thoughts, which helps me to be happy and grateful . 

I keep a journal and begin each day by reading a positive affirmation and popping it where I can read it throughout the day reminding me to be conscious of my thoughts,
 as I believe being aware of my thoughts helps me to be happy and grateful and manifesting my goals and purpose in life.

Each of us choose our thoughts and if we read positive words during each day I believe it helps, especially if I am having a low day . 

I surrounded the quote with blooms and layered embellishments ,  as I am sure  you know I adore layering. These collage packs, laser cuts are perfect for creating many layers on a LO . I painted some chipboard houses with green paint and added a layer of  crackle paint . I loaded lots of beautiful blooms in a cluster hugging the quote, and also included some butterflies and leaves as an added feature .The lacey laser cuts complete this LO .





 



Thanks for popping by and I hope I have inspired you to use some of these packs to create layers on your work .. lots of big hugz until next  time .. love from heather J

WONDERFUL


Hello and a very warm welcome to everyone .
 Today I am showcasing more of the fabulous 
Vintage Artistry collection and embellishments, 
from the amazing 


This is quite a simple page I produced, 
with lots of dimension and my signature layers .. 
Items used …..
Vintage artistry Collection – Gilded – Natural
Vintage artistry Emphera Sheet stickers .
Stitched frames - Natural
Washi tape - Natural
Collage stacks – Natural
Serendipitous Layered Embellishments
Epoxy stickers
 Dusty attic chipboard.


As many of you know I am a keen gardener . 
tending to my garden is a great passion of mine 
so I decided to create a layout featuring 
some of my pots and bulbs . 

 I have added a couple of pics of my garden at the end of this post .


WONDERFUL 
{welcome spring}
 I needed 2 of the papers for my Layout today as I began by fussy cutting the leaves on the paper and taped them over the mirror image on the paper …
 I layered the collage stacks and frames behind the photo , while securing these papers with sticky dots to raise the layers , giving a 3 dimensional feel and look to my page .
. I stained the chipboard title and bloom placing them each side of my photo . Washi tape is used on one corner of the collage stacks and also to secure the chipboard stem . I added a cluster of tiny pieces of left over papers and used this to embellish the top left corner .

a little red and kraft cardstock thrown in to break up the black and white . 
ENJOY 

My Cover 

 The cover has heaps of beautiful Dusty attic chipboard 
together with paint, ink and crackle paint and touches of metal elements .


My open book ..

Amazing Moments


Hello my friends and fans of 49andmarket 

Today I am sharing my March project with you .

I am showcasing the wonderful 49andMarket vintage artistry and embellishments .


 The photo I decided to use was taken while we were relaxing at breakfast, 

 on one of our many holidays at Byron Bay.  

I used the vintage artistry papers as my base – Collector.
 I began by machine stitching a piece of kraft cardstock under my paper, exposing a small edge of the kraft paper each side. Next I added depth and texture by using fibre paste with a stencil on the top left and bottom right corner of my LO.   


AMAZING MOMENTS 
 The photo was taken while we were relaxing at breakfast, 
 on one of our many holidays at Byron Bay.  

I had such fun layering the various stacks and stitched frames as the base under my photo
I decided to layer these on angles to create both interest and depth to my design . 
I complimented the Collector paper by coordinating both the shades of sky and natural frames 
and stacks …
 this magnified the depth and different layers under the photo .


I diecut various tags using the vintage artistry ephemera and placed them under and around the edges of my photo. The floral cluster on the bottom right of the photo is made up of rustic barn blooms and the beautiful leaves from the serendipitous layered epoxy stickers. 






I adore these epoxy stickers , they are truly fun to play with and make a wonderful statement on any page . I placed small strips of the natural washi tape over various diecuts to complete the design .
 I urge you to take a look at the embellishments available from 49andmarket, you will have so much fun playing with these designs and embellishments …

Vintage Artistry collection – Collector.

Natural washi tape
Sky collage stacks and Sky stitched frames
Epoxy coated sticker embellishments -Serendipitous layered embellishments
Vintage artistry Emphemera
Blooms – rustic Barn Medium .
Laser cut sheet images and wishing bubbles Misty breeze 

many thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my work.
 Take care everyone. Bye for now and big hugz from me .
