My Father and Mother are Timeless
It's July layout time at Vintage Affair and the following sketch was provided for your inspiration. The only request is that at least 1 flower is made my little o'l YOU.
Our guest designers this month are Gosia and Ana Brisas... take a moment to drop by their beautiful blogs and leave them some love.
This challenge is open until July 20th... so take some time from the heat, go inside to your cool crafty spot and make something beautiful to share with us at Our Vintage Affair.
The picture I chose of my parents was probably around their dating years... and I just adore these pictures. I used my die cut gears as masks and sprayed the background paper with my Lindys Stamp Gang Moonshadow Spray in Treasure Island Aqua for that aged patina'd look. Painted all my gears with black glossy acrylic paint. Framed the pictures with Prima "Say It With Crystals" Purchased at Studio Garage Band Etsy Store. Stained and hand crinkled seam binding with Moon Shadow spray also. And last but not least follow'd YouTuber Rina Ballerina's instruction for her take on Prima's Gatsby flower. Stay cool, go run through a sprinkler or jump in a pool... xoxo Toni
