I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather,
its a gorgeous day here in sunny Shropshire...
Maybe because of the sunshine or the fact that its late spring, the fields where I live are filled with the brightest, rapeseed yellow ever....it must have had an influence on me to use more colour in my work......
(Those who know me well, know that I'm on the dark side....I pretty much always wear my comfort colour, black, black or more black!)
That really hasn't changed and probably never will but I have to admit,
Ive really enjoyed experimenting with colour....
So today I thought I would share some subtle vintage colour, courtesy of Paperartsy fresco chalk paints....
To create the background I painted up an XL Manilla tag
I used lots of Fresco colours to create the background
Lilac, snowflake, yellow submarine, haystack, zucchini, bougainvillea, china, cherry red, tinned peas and mermaid
I stamped over the paint using Papersrtsy stamp set Word plate 2 using Tim Holtz distress Archival (hickory smoke)
Then I started layering using some of my original vintage ephemera,
The image is an original photo I found from an auction sale
( I'm always buying other peoples memories....hate to see them being thrown away!)
I used my sewing machine to add lots of stitches too!
To finish I added some rusty wire to hang it from....
I hope you like it?

Hope you enjoy the sun too!
bye for now
