Vintage - Wednesday's With Claudine

Wow, what a week it's been so far, we are knee deep into Spring Break!! WOOHOO!! My daughter turns 16 on the 30th and we are thrilled. What a beautiful young lady she is becoming.

For this week's challenge over at the Stampotique's Designers Challenge Blog our hostess is France Papillon and she has challenged us to do something Vintage looking.

This was a toughie for me, Vintage is not my forte' and I'm not so good at it. I love the challenge though and always try and look at something straight in the eye and just GO FOR IT!!

I used the Stampotique Stamp

Topknot - By Artist Daniel Torrente

I made a background with patterned paper, math problems and spread gesso and then sprayed with Color Wash and also did some stenciling

I created the flowers with the Big Shot and some Tim Holtz dies and just added lace and buttons and other bits and bobs here and there

I hope you've gotten a little bit inspired for this week's challenge. Have fun and thanks for stopping by.

Hey, Claudine! I think I have some of that background math paper you used here. I have always thought it too bold to use for a background, but I never thought to tone it down with gesso! Brilliant, my dear! You have added perfect embellishments to create your vintage look here!
