it's vintage week...

Hi there, this week is all about 'vintage'..I don't know about you, but it's one of my favourite types of layouts to do lately! There are so many gorgeous Scrapware pieces which will add charm to you vintage creations.. For this layout of my father and his little dog, I've chosen to use the classic AZ08 Antique Lowercase alphas and MI20 Mini Apples - these are so sweet!

The apples were very quick and easy to do, just some Versacolor 'cardinal' red ink and a little 'pine cone' on the edges..

..and to age the letters I tried to pick up a few of the colours in the background paper; some more Versacolor in 'cyan' (a mid blue) 'bark' and 'burgundy', while leaving parts of the chipboard still raw. Then I drew a bit of an outline using a Pentel white gel pen.

I can't wait to see what vintage creations the rest of the girls are sharing this week, you can guarantee there'll be plenty of inspiration to come!!

Best wishes,
