I had a play day recently just for fun with a friend and these are the results.
It was fun to just play for no reason but fun. The idea was to combine vintage finds with any of our craft items and mediums. I altered an old cigar box using DecoArt Media products, Relic Pieces and Prima Artisan Powder along with added embellishments and bits and pieces.
The spoon which holds the Relic piece was from a car boot sale, I love the edge detail on the spoon. Torn papers and wire are added to a torn piece of Alice in Wonderland book page. The beads are from an old set of earrings.
I aged the Relic piece and the spoon with the Prima Artisan Powder and backed everything onto a Mega Crackle backdrop using DecoArt Media products.
I also included an old door handle which fitted perfectly over the spoon along with some circles of wire for added texture.
The book page was aged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The text "Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures" is computer generated. The picture is from one of my vintage shopping trips along with the cherub and mushroom.
The hessian added behind is for added texture to the design, I love adding texture to my work.
A little fairy added to the top of the cherub and metal leaves added from an old necklace.
A rusty heart and moss add further texture.
The cigar box is surrounded by crackle texture.
Thanks so much for popping by. Hope you are all enjoying the festive build up to the big day. Tracy x x
