It's Friday and an exciting day over at A Vintage Journey! We are celebrating our first birthday and there are some seriously exciting prizes to be won. Ok, ok, I know we all say that - but this month I wish I could enter, really I do! Do hop over and take a peek. Not only are there some cool prizes up for grabs but there is a new format to the challenge blog too.
So onto by make, the theme is Anything Goes with a Tim influence so I had a play with the new Runway stamps to make this wall hanging.
The background is greyboard, covered in some Tim Holtz paper - although pretty much covered it up with some stencilling through the latticework stencil and some sanded, blackened edges.
I took some corrugated card and painted and shabbied it up a little.
My tags were sitting on my desk from mopping up but I decided to recolour them. I used a variety of brown and blue distress paints to create a marbled background. I then stamped over them with picket fence distress stain.
For the girls I used frosted film on acetate. I stamped in stayzon, lightly coloured with alcohol inks and then added the blue for the clothes with a promarker.
My words are from Tim's new Big Chat stickers and the 'I's' cut from grungeboard, painted and finished with glossy accents.
Here are some close ups (these were taken in a little more sunlight if the colours look slightly different!)
Thanks for visiting today, and hope to see you over at A Vintage Journey for lots more inspiration, exciting news and prizes.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
