I made some flowers with my new Shabby Posies die by Tammy Tutterow and Tim's Tattered Florals inked with Tumbled Glass. Smaller flowers were made with the Tattered Flower Garland die and colored with Peacock Feathers crayon at edge and Peacock Feathers ink. A single black half pearl with gesso stands in for the center. I cut a few from crinoline and these were painted with titanium white and a hint of Tumbled Glass. The larger posies have centers of beautiful tiny roses gifted to me by blog buddy Samra of Paper Talk With Samra. She makes the prettiest flowers! These work perfectly with the posies--thank you, Samra! I colored the flowers with Titanium White to unify them, since they were made from different card. I never knew there were so many shades of white! The single Tiny Tattered flower tucked in at the top of the spray is leftover from a previous project.
Check out those old metal word file tabs! They were the rage at one time. The price tag tells me they were just 49 cents on clearance at Michaels, and that was years ago! I simply altered them by cutting off the back flap and coloring them with the Distress Crayon--easy peasy!
The resin bicycle was first painted with the Distress crayon just on the frame, followed by a pat down with the Titanium White on a make up sponge. Just a hint of color shows through.
Here's one more look at my shabby monochromatic summertime canvas. I would like to thank Nikki and the entire panel of Creative Guides at A Vintage Journey for inviting me to be Guest Designer for a day here at one of my favorite challenge blogs! I am truly honored!
