Past Times

Hello and welcome to the newest challenge.
This week we move back to the VINTAGE/PAST TIMES.

As always you can be a random winner of $50 voucher
and spend it at Simon Says Stamp Store

When I think of past times, I see lots of shabby chic scenes. 
This kind of style seems to be my favorite for last weeks
and I use a lot of the dry brush technique to give a final touches.
Here is my shabby chic panel made as my craft room decor.  

As always I had quite different vision for this tag and I started with
adhering pieces of old book pages, covering the surface with grey
acrylic paint, giving a thin layer of white gesso (all invisible now, lol).

Having this done, I applied my lovely Nuvo Expanding Mousse
through my fave SSS Extra Large Dots Stencil and heated it up.
Love the texture got with the expanding mousses. 

Then I applied some texture and crackle paste randomly.
After that I colored the surface with Distress Oxide blue and grey inks.
Finally I stamped and embossed in white the Tim Hiltz Grunge Scroll. 
At the end I just gave several extra thin layers of white gesso 
placing it with a really dry brush. It takes some time and patience.

Since the color of the Baseboard Frame didn't match my vision
I painted the fame with white gesso and stamped and embossed
the same scroll stamp all over the frame and I really loved the result. 

Then I cut and colored the Sizzix Wildflower Stems 2 and the rest
of my embellishments. All of them was covered with a thin layer
of white gesso which is my closest friend :P

Od dawna w ścianie przy wejściu do kuchni tkwił samotny gwóźdź.
Cierpliwie czekał na spełnienie swojej dumnej roli. Się doczekał. 
 Zasuszonym zdobyczom spacerowym oraz sporemu 
drewnianemu obrazkowi (30x30) dałam drugie życie.
Jeszcze jeden od kompletu czeka na swoją kolej, pomysł już dojrzewa.
Tymczasem ten szaro-błękitny mówi dzień dobry o każdej porze dnia :-)
