vintage me

he hee...
that's the title of my next page.
Had to take a lot of pictures cause
I want to show you the texture of this page,
of how it looks in real life.

This is me, when I was 10 months old,
These pictures were taken in 1971,
in the home where I was born.

I started out with 2 pieces
of white cardstock. On the first piece
I stamped several images/text with
Versamark and I used white embossing powder
and heat setted it. Then I added several
colors of Distress ink. ( bundle sage - tumbled glass -
scattered straw - peeled paint and stormy sky )
Then I used the same stamps again, only this time
I used pumice stone - black archival and peeled paint.
My pp came out gorgeous,( at least, I think it did)
that's why I took many pictures,
in the hope you'll pick up the colors.

some close ups:

On the second piece of white cardstock I added
a layer Gesso and stamped in the wet Gesso.
(see picture below)

I added some color using glimmermist and let it dry.
Then stamped my Hex Net in black archival.

For the chipboard piece, (Dusty Attic) I cut it in 3 pieces,
dabbed gesso on it with my finger and then
sprinkled some glitter while the gesso was
still wet. let it air dry.

These flowers were hand dyed, using distress inks
and some perfect pearl mist. Then I added some
frosted lace stickles.

I really love the texture.

The title was hand written, on some
painters tape.

So.... anyone
can make their own patterend paper.
I really like to use stamps and this
resist technique.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Have an awesome weekend!!
