Follow your ❤️

Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
As its Valentines day this week I thought 
I would share a vintage inspired make with you...

I started with a scrap piece of wood, to which I added lots of layers of gesso and texture crackle paste, I then coloured it using distress paints.
Next I used some of the new collage floral papers (yep... I'm using colour!) onto one of the new large cabinet card frames using collage medium, I also layered the background 
using some of the new wallpaper from Idea-ology.
Then I selected the photo from the found relatives pack and added layers, 
stitching and some Idea-ology embellishments.

To finish I added a couple of butterflies and a word chip
and added a rusty wire to the wood to make a hanging.

As always please feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and every one
Wishing you a very Happy Valentines!

I will be back soon with more of my samples from the Creativation show!
best Wishes



  1. this is beautiful Kaz! I have got to try this type of coloring...just makes the flowers look so very vintage!!

  2. Just love this Kaz! I was really drawn to the texture on the wood, it looks amazing, and then my thoughts turned to those beautiful flowers-so glad to read they are from the collage papers since I prob could never color my own so beautifully. Thanks for sharing this super valentine!

  3. I love it... those found relatives are so amazing aren't they? Can't wait to get the new ones ! I'm loving how you used the wall paper too. My wishlist is so long for Tim's new product :)

  4. This is so beautiful - such gorgeous colours and all those wonderful details. I can't wait to get some of this gorgeous paper!

  5. What a lovely piece! TFS Kaz!

  6. Wonderful hanging Kaz and I just love all those delicious layers x The papers look amazing, reminding me of some of the wallpaper I had in my room as a kid xx

  7. So pretty. I love the vintage feel and the crackle in the background. The papers are gorgeous and I love the addition of the ruler . Tracy x

  8. Beautiful! Those papers really make the piece. Vintage, nostalgic and so lovely.

  9. Can you use the crackle on burlap? I made a vintage burlap picture with my husband's great grandmother and it is missing something

  10. Color and vintage goodness...beautiful!

  11. To me you are the 'Vintage Queen' but it is also lovely to see you use colour - and you still manage that vintage vibe - a gorgeous make Kaz! Anne xxx

  12. Lovely. I love the vintage effect. I’m not sure about using crackle stuff, I’ve got some, just not sure what to do with it.

  13. Ooh, just love this project with all the different elements and layers!


Thanks so much for passing by the little shabby shed....your comments mean so much xx
