It's all about Vintage at Mixed Media World this month

Hi Everyone
Today is the start of a new challenge month over at Mixed Media World and our theme for the month is
I have chosen to use those colours that I associate with that vintage look and those are shades of brown rather than make a vintage looking piece as is with any challenge theme it's just down to how you interpret the theme.

I started with the large MDF piece from That's Crafty and covered it in a coat of dark brown Paperartsy Fresco paint. I then added stencilling using texture paste and when that was dry added the lighter shade of paint over the top. I then rubbed off some of the lighter shade to allow the brown to pop through giving a distressed look. I then punched some circles from printed tissue paper and added those edging them with a brown pitt artist pen which you can blend with. Word stencilling is added with Tim Holtz stencil.

I then finally stencilled on the Paperartsy Lin Brown stencil PS024 using crackle paste and when dry coloured with the pitt pen. A few glass drops that I had stuck to text paper and blue splashes finish the piece before finally adding my sentiment using Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.

Even in the finest of stalks you get a fabulous crackle look.

If you pop along HERE you can see the fabulous inspiration that has been made by the rest of the DT.
We would love to see your interpretation of our VINTAGE theme and one lucky winner will receive their choice of 3 images from the Etsy shop of our sponsor this month "Old Vintage Shop" (more details can be found on our challenge blog)
Can't wait to see what you make
