The photo is of my great aunt in her roaring twenties days. What a kick! I love using old family photos in projects.
I used several different household items to create this canvas. I used a big piece of lace as a stencil to create the pattern at the top. I just laid it down on the canvas and spritzed the mist through it (and now I have a pink piece of lace for another project). I also used strips of masking tape to add texture under the misting and a piece of feather from my feather duster. On the cardstock for the diecut flowers I first spread on a thin layer of heavy gesso and then squished plastic netting from a mesh fruit bag into it to dry. Then I diecut and misted the flowers. I think the netting gives them a great texture. Finally, I used a lid from a bottle of Tropicana orange juice. How you may ask? Ranger Cut 'n Dry foam has a firm side to it that you can heat with a heat gun and press objects into it to make your own custom stamps. I rolled the lid across the warm foam to make a cool stamp!
I embellished with some vintage buttons and Graphic 45 paper from the Couture collection. (Love their papers!) Thanks for reading about my project, I hope you found inspiration in it. =)
