You're My Type

Design Team Double Duty:

Unruly PaperArts:  February Heartfelt Issue:   Readers Art Quest:  I used both the word and photo prompt
My Artistic Adventures Challenge # 3:  Anything Goes

My celebrations are our 44th wedding anniversary and Valentine's Day.

Why not take advantage of my double duty and make something to enter both challenges yourself?

My Artistic Adventures

As you can see, I created this wall hanging in my typical vintage style.  I love using old-timey images and backgrounds such as script and music.  Vintage, just like my blog background, is where I'm most comfortable.

Materials Used:

Heather Hudson's MyArtisticAdventures Etsy: Shabby Vintage Chic Valentine's Day Romantic Music Tags Digital Collage Sheet You get a set of 4 colors. I used the beige collage sheet.
Shabby Vintage  chic Valentine's Day Romantic Music Tags Digital Collage sheet

I colored the heart with Ranger Distress Stain:  Broken China.  I used my brand new Tim Holtz rosette die on Heather's music strip.

I peeled back the top layer on my cardboard and painted with Ranger Broken China Distress Paint.  I thought it was too blue compared to the distress stain so I covered it with Ranger Bronze Metallic stain.

I edged my papers with Stampin' Up Stamp 'n Write Chocolate Chip marker.  Heather has done a nice job distressing her tag.  I added a bit of  Ranger Walnut Stain distress ink to the edges and then edged with Ranger Walnut stain.  I also used the stain on the Maya Road scroll mini chipboards.
