Hey y’all! Today I bring to you my “2017 Vaca” Layout! And as you see today’s theme is “antiqued” so I thought I would just walk you through a few things I did on this page to give it a bit of an antique vibe without using anything vintage on it at all.
I ran across this super cute dolly Sizzix die and knew I had to get it to give my projects some sweet vintage vibes! And I feel like it certainly did that. I used the vintage looking pretty floral patters of the Maggie Holmes Crate Paper sheets to make these sweet little dollies and they really ramped up the vintage feeling on this page.
The machine stitching always make me think of antique linens with the zig zag stitches. I also gave the bright yellow a little of a tone down with a thin coat of white Bad Girls Couture gesso. It’s all accented with various botanical and leaf cut outs using Sizzix dies. I find this is a wonderful way to play with my patterned papers and add interest and dimension to my pages.
And finally as normal with most of my work, I inked it all up with a brown stamp pad to soften edges and give it all an antiqued, aged feeling.
Thank you for stoping by today, now go get your antique on!
