49 and Market Vintage Artistry in Natural...12x12 Layout *Natural Beauty*

 Hello Lovelies. Today I am here in hopes of inspiring you with the brand new Vintage Artistry in natural. There are 4 new color collections in Vintage Artistry. The beauty of the Natural Collection is if you want to add color, you can add any color your creative heart desires! I chose green and peach. I added a touch of brown distress inking to keep with the vintage look. Last year, a beautiful dragonfly let my granddaughter get up close and personal with him. She touched it, stroked his wings, and even held it in her hand. I captured the photos beautifully, and thought this was the perfect time to use them.

I absolutely adore the new Vintage Artistry Stitched Frames. If you don't own a sewing machine, but love the look of real stitching, then these frames are for you! I love to sew, so to tie the frames into the layout, I tore strips from a piece of paper from the 6x6 Natural collection, adhered them together to form a frame the size of the layout, then stitched all around to match the smaller frames. I inked the edges then adhered it to the 12x12 background. I also stitched around the laser cut frame and layered it onto the Stitched  Frame. I left the tail of threads for added texture.

Here is another Stitched Frame. I adorned it with the beautiful Country Bloom florals and the leaves are from the Captured Adventures laser cut sheet. I inked the edges and wrinkled the leaves for a natural look. Then I tucked the leaves under the clusters of flowers. I tucked some of the green leafy stems found in the Cottage blooms pack, under the dragonflies wings.

The tiny rolled roses were created using the smaller scraps of paper left after die cutting the big dragonfly, and tearing the strips for the framed border. I added some of the smaller Wishing Bubbles to the dragonfly body. I used 2 different stamps sets on the background around the design of the layout. It added beauty and texture around the photos and design elements. 

Here is another closeup of one of the clusters of flowers and leaves. The dragonflies from the Serendipitous laser cut sheet are so sweet. I love when you layer them and flip their wings up, they look as if they are ready to fly off of the page!

  1. Yep - this one is wonderful! Love the stitching and just the subject matter is awesome in itself! Rolled flowers always add a touch of 'interesting'. I need to make some again. I forget about all kinds of techniques until I see them. ha! Beautiful layout Lisa

  2. Extraordinarily gorgeous! This elegant, captivating and entirely lovely layout feels like the hugely welcome antithesis of the long, dark winter we've just pulled through. It is nothing short of stunning!
