As I mentioned in my last post, my mojo has fallen and can't get up...or so it seems. However, in a last ditch effort to find SOMETHING creative in myself I attended a Crop For Missions last weekend and did (somehow) manage to eek out a few valentines.
(Displayed here on a vintage piece of velvet just purchased for...yes, you guessed it...tattered roses! I'll let you know how they turn out!)
I know, I know...it's COWBOYS. Yet AGAIN! I just can't get my fill of these sweet v-intage little boy and girl images!
I used three colors of glitter cardstock: Red, Aqua and Pink. I used stamps, rub-ons, fabric, paper embellies, glittery silver pipe cleaners, and lots of chocolate-colored chalk to ink the edges and "grunge" the little images. (And here's a tip for those of you who prefer your images look vintage instead of printed...print on ivory colored cardstock instead of white. It makes the colors appear richer and more vibrant. I also used textured cardstock which makes the images appear worn in places...not sure why?!?!)
I have two more; still incomplete...pics when they are finished. I borrowed a camera from a friend, so I thought I'd get these photographed while the ability to do so was afforded me. :-)
More soon...what are YOU working on?
