Trying Something New...

by making something old!
I don't typically "do" vintage...
my great friend Theresa does vintage...
quite well...
I wanted to do a wall art piece
and the papers I picked
just screamed
so I went to it.
I inked the canvas, I inked the papers,
I inked the doilies,
I inked my nightgown
(modge podged it, too---!)
and I inked ME!
It was fun--and I am waiting the verdict
from Theresa
on what she thinks...
(I ended up with an even # of roses around the photo...
thinking it might need
a few more in that bottom left corner
to weigh it down some...?)
but here it is..
my first REAL attempt  at VINTAGE...

Whatcha think? it is AFTER I added more roses!
Now I have a group of cream that should be broken up
but--it's DONE!

The papers are by Lost and Found
the roses are made with the Close to My Heart
Art Philosophy cartridge
(I LOVE making roses with this! Super super easy!)
and our CTMH little pearls adorn the center.
The "memories" letters were in my stash
as was the ribbon
distressing ink and lots of Modge Podge!
I am only a month late with this gals
birthday gift--but I think she'll like it.

Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
