Wow, I must have been missing vintage/distressing/etc. a lot! I made this project tonite in less than two hours. I guess I was VERY excited to craft :)! Sometimes I think I like distressing because it's like painting, which I used to do in my elementary and high school days. I loved painting and creating abstract projects...it's pretty freeing (is that a word?).
I love this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show! I am all into re-purposing things...the base of this project is a thick sort of like what we now called chipboard. It may have been from the backing of a notepad or something. I added Tim Holtz Lost and Found papers and the letters I cut from one of the papers. Life is but a dream, don't you think?
I distressed the paper edges with the distressing tool and distressed everything with distress inks, alcohol inks, and starburst stains. Used some of my favorite Melissa Frances embellies (the wings), which I distressed. Added some lace, a trinket pin, a muse token, some Prima pearls, a bunch of flowers that I edged with stains, a clip...I clipped each corner with my Corner Chomper. Hope I didn't break it! It was quite hard to chomp, but I think it's okay ;p'.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like my distressing ;p', hehe. I had a TON of fun creating tonite.
Have a great Tuesday!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
