2016! Happy New Year
Two posts in one day for me must mean the first of the month and some new challenges. First up we have a new theme at A Vintage Journey - Vintage Travel and Luggage.
I have been meaning to do something like this for a while - using an Andy Warhol style but with a slightly more vintage feel.
I took a shadow box - this one is 20cm x 20cm inside and cut 9 squares. I stamped my selected images (archival ink) and then coloured each one with a different distress ink. A little flicking of water, distressing of edges and some vintage photo ink was added.
The frame was white originally. I added some neutral coloured household paint and when dry began dry brushing various darker tones. Once dry I added a watery wash of a couple of Deco Art translucent paints.
I added some lightly coloured (vintage photo) chit chat stickers to the little ornate frame and filled it with glossy accents.
I took some time arranging my images and colours in the box and gave some extra dimension with foam pads. I have taken my photos before adding the glass to the frame to avoid reflections!
Do stop by a A Vintage Journey if you haven't already where there is some wonderful inspiration this month.
I'll be back later with the launch of this month's challenge at Country View Crafts.
