I am thrilled beyond measure to be a guest designer today for A Vintage Journey and their fabulous challenge "Create Inside a Frame." I am a frame hoarder and could not wait to alter one of my frames for this challenge. I've shared all the inky details of my background process on my A Vintage Journey post, so do click on over and read about this fun process.
Here's a glimpse of the before. Don't worry, I have saved this handwritten parchment and will incorporate it in a collage in the future, well of course I will!
Some of the details of my fall embellishment bundle. The die under the flowers (can somebody help me name this?) is a recent score at Tuesday Morning and is by Darcie's.
The beautiful flowers are by Recollections, from Michaels. I've used Sizzix dies for the clock, the branch, the frame, and the tattered leaves.
The branch is painted with IndigoBlu metallic copper paint. It is the most wonderful color!!! I used splashes of it with their gold paint as well.
In just the right light you can see the base colors peeking through the layered white gesso, this is my favorite section. I really had a blast working on this altered frame. The Found Relatives photo from Tim Holtz was the perfect focal image. Thank you A Vintage Journey creative guides for having me today!
