A little shabby/Vintage ......


Hello friends

Hope you are good!
Brrrr  hasn't the weather has turned.....yuk!
I think its time to dig out those thermals!!

Just a quickie post to share some Shabby/vintage
 (plus a little give away ........ more about that at the end of the post)

I recently came across this vintage postcard
and I fell in love with the image...
I'm so fascinated by the story behind old postcards and photos
who they are, where they are from......
On the post mark
Its dated October 14th 1908 and is called 
"Uncle Ned's child studies" (series 2)
it was addressed to a Lily from  A William Thorpe....

I started by taking a page out of my favourite  Dylusions journal
I used lots of gesso, brown paper and old text pages...... 
Remnant Rub-ons, Industrial stickers and vintage lace from my own stash 
I used lots of Idea-ology, tissue tape, along with lots of stitching 
I thought I would add the post date to the front of the photo
The pencil writing is original........ 
I mounted the page onto some board which was covered in brown paper and distressed using Walnut stain distress ink
I added the "enjoy the journey"  as the little guy looks like he is doing just that!
I hope you like the image as much as I do......
thanks for popping by!

So who would like a little give away??

I have a Ranger Apron to give away to one lucky person
All you need to do is to leave a comment.......
good luck!
Winner will be announced on my next post!
GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

have a great week

  23. It's really cool how you bring these lost souls back to life. Who knows, maybe someone will recognize their grandmother or grandfather in one of these old photos. They are amazing.

  31. And the vintage goodness continues to stream out of the shabby little shed and that creative brain of yours! This is just fabulous, Kaz! The machine stitching on top of the layers of torn and distressed papers. Just perfection! Love the photograph and the sentiment! Even the little metal embellishments just seem to "sing" and be so content to be included in this little work of art! <3 Candy

  36. That's sweet of you. I don't need an apron but just wanted to say that your page is fabulous. What a great image to jumpstart your creativity!

  37. This is FABULOUS - I always did love the antiquey, brownish slightly grungey vintage look, and this is the pinnacle of the art! But what do you mean "took a page OUT the journal"?? Sacrilege ...

    ReplyDelete
  38. You have such a unique style Kaz; I just love looking at your pieces...so many little details. This is just fabulous. I love your mind!!!! (that sounds a little weird - I mean it as a compliment!) Maybe it's best to say I love how your creative spirit works. There, that's better! Thanks so much for sharing.

    Yes the children look like they are going on a very fun journey! Wonder where they were off too? Sometimes it's the best being the smallest :)
