I am very please to announce my appearance at A Vintage Journey challenge blog for their Celebration challenge.
When I was informed that the theme was Celebration, I immediately knew I was going to create a card and a trinket box for my very dear blog friend Aneta who is getting married this summer.
I started off with plain wooden box:
And ended up with this:
I used gesso, Broken China Distress Paint, Clear Crackle Paint, Tim Holtz script and LOVE stamp and embossing powder to create the box.
All the hardware in this project is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology collection covered with several layers of gesso...
Here you can see the crackle paint effect...
I randomly applied Broken China Distress Paint to give it that work out antique look...
I created this embellishment from several layers of die cuts glued together to give it extra dimension, painted it and stamped it, then heat embossed it. I added pearls to the corners and then painted everything over with crackle paint to give it that aged look...
Now onto my card:
I wanted everything to match so the card just followed the same technique with addition of a hand died shabby bow..
I added a Tim Holtz Idea-ology key attached to the bow with a loop pin..
I would like to thank Brenda and Chris for the opportunity to appear at A Vintage Journey and to invite crafters to join this fabulous challenge!
