This week our challenge for Just-A-Scrappin Design team (www.just-a-scrappin.blogspot.com) was to create something vintage. I'm either doing cards, scrapbooking, mini albums, well...paper crafting type stuff. This time I did a bit of a mixed media/vintage placard for Mother's Day.
I bought the placard at Michael's. It was original white. I put a coat of brown acrylic paint first.
Using Mod Podge I placed torn pieces of music themed paper and let it dry. I then put a coat of Medium Varnish and waited for it to dry. I inked up the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Peeled paint distress ink. I then put the embellishments on. The yellow flower, it's leaves and pins came from Remember When Scrapbooking (my local "x" scrapbooking store). I used seam binding for the brown accent ribbon. The metal embellishment is from Memory Makers. The vellum "Happy Mother's Day" came from Quick Quotes.
I absolutely love doing projects like this.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
