Digital Switch Over Vintage Style!

Seeing as its the week for digital switch over I thought I'd have ago at digital, vintage style For The Happy Daze Vintage Style Challenge. I've downloaded a trial version of Paint shop pro which I'm really enjoying using, but I only have a couple of weeks before it expires, so I am in computer mode at present playing about with some gorgeous vintage graphics which I've used in my first project. This is a small collage frame, that I covered in texture paint, then embossed, adding some cosmic shimmer mist and my favourite products at the moment Inka Gold, in gold and copper. I added some more Inka gold and copper to the die cut swirls and Prima mixed metal flower to tone in.

The other project is an old metal tin I sanded down and painted with gesso and black acrylic paint. I glued on some Joanna Sheen Da Vinci papers, an old book page and used a Lost Coast Mona Lisa stamp. Stamping a few swirls and more Inka gold. Finally I used some ranger crackle glaze and added a Tim Holtz book plate.

My Greek inspired project is on hold at the moment as I'm awaiting some goodies from ebay to finish it. But I've just taken delivery of a Bind it All machine so off now to have a play!! Until next time.

Both are fabulous projects. I especially like the tin.
