ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY – MAGGIE HOLMES – MARKET SQUARE 2 – WENDY MEFFAN
Hi Magpies! It’s Wendy here again sharing another layout using this gorgeous Market Square Collection by Maggie Holmes. I decided to show case some of the other colours in the collection this time to show the diversity it has.
I love layers and the torn paper look so decided for this layout not to use mixed media and focus on the dimension of the layout. I chose three different papers from the collection and tore 12 inch strips from each of them leaving the white edges showing. I then placed them one on top of each other across the top of the layout. I added sticky fixers under the edges of each layer to give dimension.
I chose my photo and then decided to add it in black and white as well creating two parts to the layout. With the main photo I matted it on two different papers again for dimension. I then created three tabs from the 12×12 papers, I distressed their edges and added some hemp string and tucked them in under the photo .
I then fussy cut some of the flowers from the floral page from the collection, along with this I cut out some of the pieces from the 12×12 Lovely Day cut apart sheet and chose some pieces from the ephemera pack. I then distressed all the edges of the pieces and arranged them around the photo tucking some under and placing some over the top on sticky fixers. i also added half a small white doily to the side of the photo. I also fussy cut a rosette from the 6×8 paper pad and added a Hey Little Magpie flair badge.
With the smaller black and white photo I again chose pieces from the ephemera pack, used some fussy cut flowers and used a half doily, I tucked some pieces around the photo and some over the top in layers creating an embellishment cluster. I used the acetate ephemera along with the chipboard stickers. I then added a small epoxy clip to the top of the photo and another Hey Little Magpie flair badge.
Across the top of the layout I added some hemp string along with a silver bird charm and a tassel.
I love how this layout turned outing can’t wait to continue using this gorgeous collection which also coordinates with previous Maggie Holmes collections.
