Welcome to my blog,
I decided to travel with A Vintage Journey on their new challenge.
I had to use grey board ( Doorhanger and perfume bottle), metal ( butterfly and charm), lilac/ purple colour and rust technique ( Distress Vintage Photo embossing Powder and Quin Gold Decoart paint).
When I read that lilac and purple were the colours to use I remembered old perfume bottles smelling of lavender belonging to my Nana, so that became my inspiration.
I really enjoyed creating the background. I started with white gesso then shades of purple paint which were then script stamped. I added White heat embossed butterflies and pearlescent texture paste through stencils. Mostly Tim products!
The perfume bottle had a coat of gesso then purple paint. When it was dry I covered it with Decoart Crackle Glaze then Antiquing cream in white to highlight the cracks. I had some perfume bottle stamps which I heat embossed onto tracing paper and coloured with spectrum noir pens.
The ribbon and flowers were dyed with DI, wilted violet and Dusty Concord. The metal butterfly and charm had treasure gold rubbed on and then pearls added.
The rust was created with Vintage Photo embossing powder heated then diluted Quin Gold dripped on top to run down. Very satisfying process!!!

Our Creative Corner
I had this lovely photo taken last year of the four generations of females in our family and wanted a lovely frame to suit the background of the picture.
So I chose Rustic from Oct 14! I used a £1 cardboard frame which I painted with Decoart products.
I put blobs of paint at the top of the frame and scraped them down using an old credit card. I used TH script stamp and a splatter stamp with translucent ink over the top.
To create the rusted wrought iron gate effect I mixed Paynes Grey with sand texture paste and scraped it through a flourish stencil. when it dried I dabbed Qincorine Gold on top. Gorgeous!
I hope you are inspired to join our challenge, great choice, check out our lovely DT projects.
