“Fly without wings”

Hi there friends. I hope this post finds you healthy
and happy. 

I am back today to share my latest creation for 49andMarket. I have
called this project “Fly without wings”. I hope you enjoy my post today, so
without further ado I will give you a little rundown of the products used and my
creative process.


As you could well imagine every two weeks choosing from the
amazing collections from 49andMarket is no mean feat. I um and ah so much it
even annoys me!! So when I started creating this project for today I swapped backwards
and forwards with differing collections always coming back to the Vintage
Artistry Lilac. Oh how I love this collection. The softness of the papers
always bring me back to the shabby vintage style of scrapbooking which I love to create in. 

I started out with the patterned paper “Tranquil”.
This is a beautiful piece with a very simplistic background, a little cursive
writing on it and touches of imperfections which always makes for a gorgeous
backdrop. I added a small amount of interest to the background paper using
Crackle Paste and some random stamping with Ethereal Stamp Set and Black Soot
distress ink. I also used the piece “Mystique” from the Lilac Collection as
well as the backer card of Sweet Reflections to help the lilacs pop a little.
The blues and greys in the Sweet Reflections piece does exactly this. So using
the Mystique and Sweet Reflections backer card I made lots layers and mats for
my gorgeous photo of my daughter from her formal, to sit upon. I also added in
ticket elements from the Lilac Ephemera Stack to help with the layers. These
stacks are just amazing with a multitude of tones of purple to help with


I added in some other elements too from the cut out sheets of the
backer papers which you will always find in the collection packs. I have used
the clocks from the Tattered Garden Sheet, and cut them in half to allow them
to go further around my layout. These were also layered up on some Dusty Attic
Chipboard doilies which added more interest to the clocks. To the clock faces I
dressed them with acrylic paint and also a large covering of Dusty Attic Clear
Crackle Varnish.







 I have used numerous different collections of flowers from
49andMarket to help with my clustering of flowers. These include the Lavender
from the Daisy Stems and the baby Blues from the Sugar Posies Huckleberry
collections. With the Fluff from the Sugar Posies collection I used some in
white and some I coloured using a mix of white gesso with some Acrylic Paint in
Sugar Plum. This gave me a gentler pinkish colour.

Serendiptious Layered Embellishments

Star Dust Stickles


As you will notice I added in many more chipboards pieces to help
frame my photo. Also I added in some laces cut into pieces. The butterflies are
from the older collection of 49andMarket’s layered embellishments. The blue
leaves were from the Serendipitous collection of layered embellishments. I
chose the title name from the barcode strip of the Irrevocable Beauty
“Petrarch” paper…… “Fly without wings”. Finishing
up my project I added in some pretty flower pearls with mat gel and some Star
Dust Stickles over my flower stamens and butterflies and little birds.







Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed my blog


Take care and until next time happy crafting.
