How are you all doing?/
Its Friday...my favourite day!
(Gin and tonic day!)
As you know, I'm an big collector of vintage and I'm always on the look out for
I recently came across some really cool "Sale Price" tickets
at my local antiques centre....
(I almost broke my neck to get them to the till!)
I couldn't wait to get them home and to use them in some art work....
here's what I did....
I used lots of Tim Holtz ephemera ( expedition pack) some Tim holtz idea-ology
and some of my own vintage finds....
I layered some of the ephemera on top of a burlap canvas
I also added lots of stitches
The focus is a photo from the "lost relatives" Idea-ology pack and that vintage "sale price"ticket
I added some old rusty wire around the boy and the dog
I LOVE keys and I cant help but add them to my art....
The bulldog clip is very old, I had to be careful with it as it was very rusty
The white background is from Tim's embossed Motif paper stash, painted with gesso,
then wiped off with a wet wipe.
I've also used bunting inked with pumice stone/vintage photo distress inks
I really enjoyed putting this canvas together.
I think I may need another visit to the antique store this weekend!
