Hello again! Stacey back again with a couple more projects to share. Today I have used the collection Vintage Summer Basics. For my first project I opted to create something girly for a change. I love that these collections cater for everyone!! This is my sweet little niece who just turned 4 back in August. She had her face painted at her party and I snapped this adorable picture of her. These papers are gorgeous, fit for any little princess.
I distressed the edges and also used my lace heart punch.
Here I would like to share a really quick run down on my process for this layout. I started out with my background paper and scraped some Gesso on it to whitewash the flower print. I did this only on the section were I planned my embellishments to go. I didn’t want to cover too much of the print as it is so stunning!
Using a mask and texture paste I applied the mask down the centre of the page. Then I sprayed some Shimmerz mists to the masked area. Also taking the lid off to add flickers of paint.
I then applied my photo mat to the centre of my page. I distressed coordinating papers at different sizes and layered them along with some calico material and string/twine.
My next layers consisted of some transparency and then I used foam tape to attach the photo to the centre. Once this was in place it was then ready to embellish with all of the pretty flowers and trinkets.
I have used the following Vintage Summer Basics papers for this creation: 1909, 1922, 1923, 1925, 1945.
Plus additional of Prima flowers and embellishments, Webster’s Pages Embellishments and 2 Crafty Chipboard.
My second project today is a Mini Wishing Well. I asked my best friend what she would like for her birthday and she said “Make me something”!! So this is what I come up with………now to get it all the way over the other side of the country!!
I have also used the Vintage Summer Basic collection. This time using the blue and grey papers. I just loved this weatherboard paper and it was a perfect fit with this wishing well!
I just cut the papers to fit the sides and adhered. I then used some texture paste and paint to add some colour to the grey.
The little birdy looks so sweet perched up on top!
I used the papers 1905,1899 and 1935 from the Vintage Summer Basics collection.
A little brick masking also.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my creations using the gorgeous Vintage Summer Basics Collection.
