I decided to have a little play today just for me and forget about challenges as I have been burning myself out trying to keep up with myself. I started off looking through some of my stash labelled vintage and found lots of stuff that I had forgotten about. lovely images from Creative Expressions and some wartime things that set me off on an adventure.
I started by brayering some Fresco paints onto my journalling page and randomly stamping in sepia. Then I got out the "trowel" and mixed up Grungepaste, frescos and some mica flakes to spread across the page. Soon learned that mica flakes have to be pushed in on top of the grungepaste as they get lost in the paint. Had fun experimenting, added some Frantage embossing powder and got to this stage.
I selected an image from Creative expressions and glued it to some frayed fabric, aged it with Vintage photo and sewed on some buttons. Cut and frayed a strip of hessian, aged some ribbon, tore up some card and found some wartime music.(We'll meet again).
I arranged them and glued them down.
To finish off I stamped a PA sentiment onto more manuscript paper in sepia and that completed my page.
