new 49 and Market collection share

If you have been around this community even a little bit, then you know there is a long and serious love affair with 49 and Market.

49 and Market is a gorgeous brand that just keeps delivering on the gorgeous organic and mixed media vibe. We are all really here for the rub on transfers, if we are to be completely honest. 

Brand new and available now is the new Nature Study. This is a monochromatic natural feeling collection of ledgers and butterflies and painterly effects. As soon as this was available at ScrapbookCom I had it in my cart and on it's way. 

Here today is a little free inspiration for you. Plus a link to a video series that also plays a long with much of the 49 and Market found in this studio.

Hey friends...when you shop the links in this blog I receive a small kick back from your sales from ScrapbookCom and Heidi Swapp Shop. There is absolutely no extra cost to you at all! But these commissions help to cover the costs of this blog to provide you with project ideas. I want to continue to bring you FREE inspiration. Shopping these links allows me to do just that. I can't thank you enough for your love and continued support. Also, the opinions expressed in my blog and my YouTube Channel and all social platforms are independently my own.

One of the things we have been chatting about a lot on the YT Channel is Embellished Clusters. This one in the above image takes Nature Study Ledger paper, Foliage pieces, Ephemera, washi tape plus rub on transfers to craft this little embellished cluster as shown in the image above.

For the video tutorial, the idea was to take that 'sketch', if you will, and translate it to a layout page.

Which is just what we did here in this above image. As seen in the video tutorial, similar elements were used to make that same cluster. Only here it's  popped up on a page.

And that butterfly? It's a rub on transfer. It's been transfered to acetate giving it such a beautiful ethereal feel right there. Oh. Man. Do I love that! And from the comments received, you all are enjoying this little technique too.

There it is. A few of our favorite things. An embellished cluster. A scrapbook layout. Plus Nature Study in all its organic glory helping to tell our stories. This is what we call useful creativity. Not only did we dabble in the layering on of elements to create a clustered embellishment...but it also is home to a story. 

Hope this inspires you to layer away and to tell your story too.
