Vintage Chic

Vintage Chic

Hallo Everyone!

Here we are with a new topic
and some super new projects

Helen Chilton is going to start
us off.  Over to you Helen.....

"This project uses Brushos, 
but this time on Yupo paper. 
They give a much softer effect on the Yupo.

Start off by VersaMarking your stamp and 
then rubbing in dry the three colours of Brushos.

Spritz with water and stamp repeatedly........

..........until you've built up a whole background.
 Looks a mess? Don't worry.

Blot it back with kitchen paper...........

.......and hey presto! A lovely soft, muted background
 with just traces of the stamp image here and there.

Next stamp one image onto Yupo as before
 using a Stamp Positioner if you've got one.

Let it dry and then ink up just parts of the stamp
 with Watering Can Archival inkpad and stamp.

Keep going, picking out details, until you're happy. 
Add extra diamonds from the stamp in grey 
round the edges.

Echo the diamond shapes in the stamp 
by stencilling in yellow over the background.

It will then look like this.

Use the Tim Holtz Mixed Media Thinlits die set 1
 to cut out the corners of your background and 
overlay on scrapbook paper. 

Then cut some more out of blueish paper 
and use the actual cut shapes.

Lay the top shapes slightly offset to create 
an interesting pattern.

Cut a hexagon background for your main images 
and add border stamping in grey. Add brads

Add fibres and beaded embellishments.

And here's the finished piece:"

Materials used:

Lovely Helen, thank you very much

Something  little bit different but very
versatile.  Would make a wall hanging,
a book cover, or even a card front....

Been a while since I gave my Brushos
an airing - now might be a good time

'Till tomorrow
