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 projects.
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 post.
Take care and until next time happy crafting.

Hello and welcome crafty friends. I am back today to share with you my newest creation called "Let your smile change the world". I thought this title which I found from the Dusty Attic Sentiments pack was quite apt for our challenging times at present. So without further ado this is my take on this months Dusty Attic moodboard which I just adore.
