49 and Market Vintage Artistry Sage Collection. "Captured"

Hello lovies!! Its my turn on the blog today with some new inspiration. The newest Vintage Artistry Collections are simply divine, and with 4 color schemes to choose from, You may have a problem choosing your favorite. I have used the Sage papers for this layout, and the Stitched frames are from the natural collection. But the butterflies are from the coral collection. Did I say you would have a problem choosing a favorite?? The beauty of all 4 color collections, is that they all blend and coordinate with each other beautifully. This makes your crafting so versatile! So go ahead and purchase all 4 collections. The possibilities will be be endless! Coral, Sage , Natural and Sky. Oh my!!

The 49 and Market Wild Flowers are one of my favorite flower style. I used them in Tangerine. I created the floral cluster,  and it was built on a photo wheel I die cut and mounted on corrugated cardboard to give it height. . The laser cut butterflies from the Coral collection blend in perfectly with the Sage color. I also used the laser cut leaves and vines from other 49 and Market collections to fill in the cluster.

I built my matted photo upon 2 stitched frames. The larger one on the bottom was matted over a cream piece of paper that I stamped and used watercolor on. Both stitch frames were edged with some distress ink and then I stamped the word "captured" onto a laser cut tab and tucked it between the 2 stitched frames. I added a  bit of lace over some cheesecloth to the bottom of the matted photo for added texture. The lace adds a soft feminine touch to the airy spring feel of the layout. 

The tags were die cut from the scraps left over after I die cut the photo wheel. You can't tell that they aren't full sized tags, because I only needed a small portion of them peeking out from behind the photo mat.

Here is another closeup where you can see another tag tucked under the photo mat on the side. I love the little butterflies that seem to be enjoying the beautiful flowers. Hard to see in the photos, but the lighter butterflies have layered wings which lends a beautiful dimension to them.

Thank you for taking the time  today to visit my blog. I hope to keep you inspired. xo
