Hello,today I am here to share with you, a LO I did, combining the Vintage Baby Collection & the Vintage Spring Basics Collection. The photo’s used, are of me, giving Sigurdur his first bath,in 1981,time flies!!! I am also going to show you, the latest LO’s I have completed for the kitchen wall….
From the Vintage Spring Basics I used: 2nd of April-BS,7th of April & 7th of April-BS
The chipboard used is from Dusty Attic,the flowers used are Prima…
Here are some closeups of detail….I just love all of the images on the Vintage baby Collection……I used picket fence crackle on most of the chipboard,ten rubbed in some brown chalk once the crackle had dried…Shows distressed,hand stitched layers…
The chipboard used is from Dusty Attic
For this LO,I used a photo of my middle son,who is now painting canvas’s,finding the creative side in him….For the red used on the chipboard ,I used my wall paint,for the red,plus I applied a coat of clear crackle varnish.
I used LuminArt’ (Jasper Red)H20 over the crackle on the chipboard. The red was still a bit to bright,so I toned with wintermist gray H20,once the red had dried. I used this on all the chipboard in these LO’s….I also inked the edges of the chipboard using a ink pad..I used distressed brushed pewter stain,paint & crackle on the rest of the chipboard.
This next LO,is of me with my sisters,I am the first one on the left,the oldest…..A LO of us girls as we got older,my Mom called us the 3 Queens,we did not like that!!!! This is a photo, of a younger,Siggi,my husband….My Mom & Dads wedding photo,with my grandparents…My middle & youngest son,when they were little…My husbands parents,wedding photo…Well, I guess that is it for today,I am hoping that, for my next post I can show you the before & after of the kitchen wall….Rachelle
