Our new theme at Try It On Tuesday is Vintage and as usual it can be anything you would like to make as long as it fits our Vintage theme!
The Design team have put their posh outfits on for this theme so do take a look
My original thought was to make a card but when I found this canvas in my craft room, already gessoed, I changed my mind.
I used the reverse of the canvas to make a box for my ephemera to fit into...
..and painted the outside of the frame with Paper Artsy Fresco paints. I was intending adding papers so didn't need to paint the base.
On my BIG clearout I found all sorts of bits and pieces to use.
Some Tim Holtz ephemera, some Indigoblu images, and some scraps of vintage style papers. I stamped onto some with butterflies.
I don't recall buying this fancy ribbon but it seemed to be waiting for this project!
I used a frame to add a photo of our young woman's beau and a wooden stamp shape to show where he lives. It's Paris of course!
I used some copper acrylic paint to colour the frame!
Finally a corsage of roses was added to the corner and some more butterflies were stamped, coloured and fussy cut and added to the frame.
I'd like to think that the young woman is in Paris with her beau and the postcard was the one she sent to say she was on her way!!
I hope you will join us this time, there are a few rules which you will find here!
Thanks for looking, Chris
