Today sees the start of a new challenge at A Vintage Journey, and no surprises, - there are some hearts and love involved in our challenge theme this month.
Our fabulous host this month is the talented Annie, and this is what she had to say about the challenge theme:
Since February is the month of love, include hearts as the main focus of your project. Just be sure your design is in keeping with our vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk styles we prefer.
Well, I decided to alter one of Tim Holtz's ETC tags, but started my project with a Graphics 45 tag and then cut some scrapbook paper with the matching G45 die. I love the shape of these tags.
I sanded the edges of the adhered paper for a distressed look.
Time to put it all together.
I covered the ETC tag with Gesso and then some buff acrylic paint. Next I added crackle paints and when then had created its crackle added a thin wash off watery dark umber.
Well, that's it from me for today. Do hop over to A Vintage Journey to see what my marvellous teamies have created and we all hope you will share some heart themed projects with us too.
Have a great month!!
