49 and Market Vintage Artistry Sky Collection. "Enjoy The Little Things"

Hello Lovelies. Today I bring to you a layout featuring the Vintage Artistry Sky Collection. The blues in the collection are gorgeous and I wanted to give it a true vintage feel with some distress ink. I edged almost all of the pieces in ink, and used some crackle paste on the window shutters. I absolutely love the Ginger color in the Country blooms flowers for the accent color among the blue. I didn't have to do any distressing on the background paper as it is gorgeous on its own. I did so some white and brown/gold spatters to add to the texture, added some art stones and wishing bubbles. I also used some gold pigment ink to edge a lot of the pieces. 

I used the ephemera in the 6x6 collection and fussy cut all of the pieces. I layered them and created a cluster for the bottom left corner. I created a smaller one for the upper right corner. The little butterflies are the sweetest. I placed an eyelet through the tag and strung some 5 ply jute through the hole. I separated the strands of the jute, and used only 2 strands. I also used a couple of pieces of the beautiful cream lace around the layout to add softness to the vintage look. 

I created a few kites to scatter around the upper part of the layout. I hand cut the shapes, used the 5 ply jute separated, and tied a few smaller pieces in the tails for bows. I used pop dots to pop them off the page and give them life! 

I wanted to portray the feel, of my grandaughter peering out of a window into the beautiful blue sky, and see the things that she loves so much. Butterflies, dragonflies, flowers and kites. These things always put a smile on her face. 

This is a closeup of the kites I created. These are one of my favorite parts of my layout. A little bit of paper and a little bit of jute, created a wonderfully big impact on my layout. 

Tucking some of the leaves and flowers under the shutters gives the layout a little bit more depth. And no matter what angle you look at the layout, it is full of bits and pieces of beauty everywhere. As I hope beauty will remain where ever we all shall go.....

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you are inspired to  create your own layout using any of the Vintage Artistry Collections.
