Living Our Best Life – 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Everywhere – Wendy Meffan

Hi Everyone! it’s Wendy here sharing my last layout for May using the gorgeous 49 and Market Vintage Artistry travel Collection. I have taken another different approach as I wanted to use multiple photos for this layout. I love banners and tags and pockets so decided to create mini version and make a grid layout with them. I used the 12×12 bright Pilgrimage paper as a background.

I trimmed the 12×12 patterned paper and added a white card stock border to give more dimension. I hand cut several banners and pocket shapes in different papers from the collection, I distressed all the edges and I then punched holes so I could add eyelets to attach them along a string.Then I started arranging the banners and pockets into rows to make a grid effect.

I cut four photos from our travels and created the banners shape with them too, to add into the rows. I then embellished each banner and pocket individually with the elements from the Cluster kit and fussy cut some pieces from the embellishment sheet in the 6×8 pack. I added faux stitching around each pennant and outlined the photos in white pen.

You can see a co ordinating flair badge created by Sarah to match the collection, (there are several different sets on the website)  I used the Flair Everywhere Map set.

Behind the pennant and pockets I used some travel stamps on the background paper with stazon ink.

Each pennant and pocket has a slightly different embellishment on it, I wrapped some waxed string around one and added some mini die cut tags as well as sing the Wishing Bubbles and Baubles epoxy stickers.

I love this layout and enjoyed cutting photos to match the shapes which is not something I normally choose. Do search out this collection, it is so versatile and can be used in so many different ways due to all the wonderful elements in it.

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!
