“With all my heart”

Hello and a big welcome back 49andMarket friends. Tina with you today to
share another of my projects using the ever so beautiful products from

 I have called this “With all my heart”.


I really am so lucky to be on this team. I often pinch myself. It is such a huge privilege and one that I am forever grateful of. And the reason I am telling you this is that in the past week I have been ever so low on creating mojo I think you might call it. I have been lacking in creativity or the want to create. And what I find for myself is that sitting and staring at my desk never really works. But what does work is just looking at all the beautiful and gorgeous products that I have been given over my time on 49andMarket. Just doing this got the mojo juices flowing. And the project above is what I came up with.


Oh how I love this photo taken by one of my children I think. Me in a photo
does not happen often but I think what I love about this pic is the happiness on
my little ones face. I really have no idea what had happened during the photo but it is
just the moment that has been captured that pulls on the heart strings. And to
think this little one turns 16 in only a matter of weeks……… I have used “Whisper” from
the “Ethereal” collection. I used two pieces, one for my background and the
other for matting of my photo. I did some distressing with the layers behind the photo and
popped some up on board to give some dimension. On my background I added in
texture using Ranger Crackle Paste and a Script layering stencil. Also I added in colour
using acrylic paints as well as some stamping in archival ink. I added in the
matting layers and then went to work on adding embellishments. I really love 49’s newest
rub-ons so it was my challenge to me to incorporate them into this project. Once I new what my title was I decided on using the stitched hearts and the
stitching. I loved using these. They went on so easily with out a problem. And
they are crispy clear.


I have used a mix of chipboards and MDF’s to help embellish my layout. I
used embossing powders along with acrylic paints and distress inks to colour
them. Once all the shapes were in place I went to work on adding in my flower clusters. This
took me many hours deciding on a colour and in the end I used many different
tones. Something somewhat different for me. I have used many packets of the Sugar Posies and
Sugar Petals. I love the colours of these flowers they are amazing. I used the
Tutti Fruitti colours and then added in the Twilight from the Garden Petals collection.
These matched in perfectly with the Tutti Fruitti flowers and the papers. It was
as if they were meant to be together. I toned down the colour a little using a dry brush
technique with white gesso. I also added in some pretty silver Micro Beads to
add the finishing touches to my project.


 I have also used all of the leaves and branches from the Sugar Posies
packs. These are just the cutest. They helped to break up some of the white from
my mdf flourishes
and just in general. And finishing off I added in some clear crackle over
the skeleton clockface and the cute hot air balloon.


Well that is all from me today. I hope this has inspired you in some small
way. Just remember the next time you are a little low on mojo not to push
yourself but rather
enjoy all the gorgeous products you have and from there I am sure you will
find your creativity. Big hugs and until next time happy crafting.
