"Love your smile" 49andMarket Design Team Project

Hi there 49andMarket friends! Welcome back to the blog. Tina Ollett with you here today to share my next layout titled “Love your smile” featuring my gorgeous oldest girl on the fabulously beautiful new release collection Vintage Artistry.

I have to tell you that the first ever Vintage Artistry release was a heart starter for me and then along comes the next versions that I really have no words to describe them except for unbelievably amazing. Each and every pattern piece makes my heart happy.   I had the pleasure of creating for the 49andMarket booth at CHA last month. This was one of the pieces that I did for it. I have used a gorgeous black and white of my beautiful daughter doing a selfie. I have used two patterned sheets from Vintage Artistry being “Admit One” and “Ambrosial”.

The gorgeous patterned piece admit one was used as my background. Really not much need to add any other things to this but I did decide to add in a little texture using modelling paste through a TCW stencil. I only added sections here and there as I didn’t want to take away from all the details of the paper. I went on to do some matting of my photo using Ambrosial patterned paper. And then I added in some gorgeous pieces from the fabulous Collage Stacks. There really is so much in these packs. I tried to use lots of differing pieces to keep the layout interesting.

I have included in this project lots of gorgeous Dusty Attic pieces that were dressed in embossing powders and inks. The ATC frames were backed with the leftover pieces of the Ambrosial patterned paper. I did lots of layering with the collage stacks and chipboard pieces. Then I moved on to giving my project some more colour. To do this I used the 49andMarket Garden Petal flowers in Sea Glass. Such a very pretty colour. I also used Country Bloom florals in Storm.

In finishing off my project I used Valerie’s  “You are loved” stamp set and made some acetate embellishments with embossing powders. These were fussy cut and added amongst the layers of my project. I also added in some black and silver micro beads along with some snippets of lace to add more interest to the project.  Well that is all from me today. I do hope that you are enjoying 49andMarket’s new releases as much as I am. Until next time take care and happy crafting.

"Together" 49andMarket project for January 2020

A huge welcome back 49andMarket friends. Today I am back here with you to share my latest projects designed with the not yet released collections of 
"Irrevocable Beauty"........

Can I just start off by saying how speechless I was when I saw this collection spilling through from the top of my goodies box. I have never truly ever been a lover of purples, but in my time on the 49andMarket team I have slowly and surely begun to love this colour. And it has become a sure go to for me. So needless to say this collection is right up my alley!! Thankyou so much Janene Jaeger Meyerowitz for designing this collection. You have rocked it!!! It is just amazing!

For this project I have used the Irrevocable Beauty's "Timekeeper" for my background piece. This has been primed and an addition of texture was made using a mini heart stencil. I also added in some colour using acrylic paints.

My chipboards were dressed in white crackle paint and allowed to dry. They were then coloured with acrylic paints. The title and chipboard filmstrip was coloured with black soot Distress Ink and Crackle Varnish.

I used the second sheet titled "Petrarch" to allow for layering. To do this I used Gabi's Circle Stitch Stamp Set and embossing with the circle stitch stamps in a variety of sizes. These were then cut out and layered amongst some of the pieces from the Sage Collage Stacks. 

Completing my layout was just a matter of layering the Laser Cut Elements amongst the Chipboard layers. I have also added in some soon to be new released Sugar Petals in "Huckleberry" along with a couple of blooms from the Stargazers Cashmere pack. A little random stamping was also done using 49andMarket’s Snapshots of Yesterday Stamp Set also soon to be released. 

Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed my project. More for you to come your way very soon.

"Snuggle" - 49andMarket Design Team Creation

Welcome and Happy New Year to you all. I hope your year will be full of creative energy. Today I have my first post for 49andMarket. I can share with you today that I will be continuing on with the team for the next year. I feel very humbled to have been asked to return once more and create and design with such beautiful products. 

Today I present my project titled "Snuggle".

Snuggle has been created using 49andMarket's Ethereal Mini Collection. This is a great way to create on the go projects for when you are on retreat or crop. The packs are full of gorgeous co-ordinating papers with an additional sheet of beautiful Laser Cut Images and a cut out sheet which you will also find in the pack.

I have created my background page using this collection by tearing and layering. I added in textures using Crackle Paste and a Dusty Attic brickwork stencil. I have also added in a little random stamping using 49andMarket's newest release from Snapshots of Yesterday. An absolutely gorgeous new stamp set which I will forever use I think. Just amazing !!! I used the stamp with a little Archival in Watering Can to my background page.

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 Botanical Blends in Sandcastle. Along with these I also added a couple of the cotton coloured blooms from the Garden Seeds collection.

I absolutely loved layering up the laser cuts for this project. And it really is so simple to do. Simply pop out the image and layer up with foam tape or old chipboard. Adding some additonal elements to create a touch of shabby elegancy is always easy to do with a little Star Dust Stickles and dry brushing with white gesso.

As with most things that I create a little bit of DustyAttic chippiness does not go astray. Here above you can see that I have used the skeleton clockface. It was simply dusted with a little white gesso. My title was also from a Dusty Attic Word pack. 

I also added in a small amount of Finn's Art Stones with some gel medium. Above you can see the effects of the Crackle Paste through the Brick stencil from Dusty Attic. I also handmade some gorgeous moulds from my stash for a little added extra special as this will be for a present for a family member. I hope you have enjoyed my project today and was inspired in some small way. I would love to hear your thoughts about my project below. It always makes my day to hear from you.

"Timeless" 49andMarket Design Team Creation

Hi there friends and Merry Christmas to you all. I do hope your day was filled with everything wonderful and that lots of special memories made with your loved ones. Well here in Australia we have been struggling through excessive heat and in some places fires. So for me doing a festive layout was a tad little offbeat with all that is happening here. So I decided on something relaxing and serene. A beach layout. This is “Timeless”.

I have chosen to use 49andMarket’s “Seaside” collection to create with. Lots of gorgeous blue hues with subtle hints of purple and some green. So I chose a pic of my son and our dog’s. Some of you may think that you have seen this photo before. But this is not so. You will have seen a similar photo from the same series of photos taken on this special day. The first ever day that I dogs had been to a beach and in the middle of our winter which really isn’t so cold here. They of course were only puppies and are now so much bigger and 7 years old. Starting off with my layout I tore papers from “Whales Tales” and “Seaside Cottage”. I added in some texture using a Fishnet stencil and texture paste. I also added in some gorgeous embossing powders in blues and golds to keep with the colours of my layout.

My photo edges were sanded gently and then placed up on some more torn papers and adhered to the centre of my layout. I added in a gorgeous Decorative Chipboard frame and some rope encircling the photo to bring the focus back to the photo. The chipboard frame was dressed in gesso and Distress Inks. The rope was highlighted using a little white gesso.

I used the sheet of beautiful  Laser Cuts from the collection to help with embellishing my layout. These were placed in and around the photo and on top of some extra shells and other beach finds that I had in my stash. To complete my beach themed layout I added in a mix of flowers from differing collections. The Country Blooms in Mushroom is my complete favourite. This colour is just gorgeous and I think was the perfect fit to compliment my layout.

A touch of dry brushing was made to the flowers and other embellishments to help pull the page together. I also added in a little colour around the clusters using Distress Inks and water.
Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed my beach themed layout and of course your festive celebrations. See you again very soon.

"My Gentleman" Brand Ambassador project for Dress My Craft

Hi there Dress My Craft friends. Tina Ollet Brand Ambassador for this fabulous company is  back here with you today to share my next featured Gentleman's collection project for the month.

You can find more of my work on my :
Facebook page here:
Instagram Page here:
You Tube Channel here:

 This project has been titled "Remember".

I chose to use a vintage family photo to help create my layout page. These two little boys we are still trying to decide how old they were in the photo. I am sure we will figure it out one day soon. 
My starting point was to adjust and fix the photo as it was a very dark colour. I used some tools in photoshop just to tweak it a little bit and tone down the sepia. 

I have used the Dress My Craft's amazing "My Gentlemen" collection kit in the 12 x 12 Set to layer my background pieces. I chose 3 or 4 pieces from the collection to start off with.

I have used Dress My Craft's Circle Chain Border punch to add more interest to my layout. I really love this punch and to be quite honest it is some time since I have used a punch on my work. So I think in future layouts this could be my added go to piece.
All of my papers were primed with Clear Gesso. I added in Dress My Crafts Swirls Stencil firstly. I made a mix of Gold Crackle Texture Paste with Rust Paste and added it through the stencil. I heat set the media and then coloured over the top with a Black Gesso. Once dry I wiped over this using some Opal Wax Magic.
I also added in a little random stamping using distress ink in Frayed Burlap. I moved along to cut some matting for my gorgeous photo. I took some pieces from the tea coloured pages. These papers are just gorgeous. The background details are a perfect fit for any masculine or vintage styled project. I distressed inked and punched the edges on some of these mats. I also added in a couple of pieces of black cardstock to help with the layers. This really made my photo pop which is always my aim in scrapbooking. Highlighting the photo really is the most important thing to me.

I adhered my photo to the project a little off centre. I made use of some old burlpap twine that was sitting nearby on a desk. This was wrapped around the project to help yet again draw the eye to the photo. I tied it off in a bow and then set to work cutting a few little images from the coordinating A4 motif sheets that come with this collection pack. 

I cut a couple of the cute little cards with the Kings and also a large crown. To these I added Crackle Accents along with ink around the edges. These you can see to the right of the photo.
And next to the cards I added the pocket watch. I added a Papermagiclay mould over the top of the pocket watch. This was coloured using Rust paste and some acrylic in black. I adhered this to the pocket watch and then filled the centre with a little Crackle Accents and then I sprinkled some Copper Mix Sequins from Dress My Craft into the crackle whilst still wet.  

Below you can see the colours from the stenciling done to the background of the page. I really love this stencil. A great addition to vintage styled creations for sure. 

You will also see the addition of other moulds and chipboards. These were all dressed in black gesso and rust pastes. For good measure I added in a couple of flowers that were coloured similarly to the layout. Also above you can see the circle border punch that was used to help create the layers.

Finishing off my project I added in some flower pearls around my layout along with some white splatters of gesso mixed down with water. 

And from another angle. I do hope you have enjoyed this project that I have created for you today.
