ARTastic OCTOBER challenge - VINTAGE BLISS
It's new challenge time at ARTastic!
This month the theme is VINTAGE & here is the art inspiration from E Phillips:
Isn't it gorgeous?
I've got a slightly different take, with an OTP project.
The neighbours gave me this set of drawers [tea included, LOL!!!]:
and I thought it would be a great little container for the flowers I have [which isn't that many!].
It took quite a bit of work. Heaps, actually! But I love how it turned out:)
I used the colours from the picture & lots of vintage-y elements.....
Initially I had to cover the whole thing with old cardboard because the plastic ridges
stuck out beyond the 'walls'.....then I taped over it
so I had a nice flat surface to adhere my patterned vintage papers:
Lots of layers! I added some pretty papers inside:
Below you can see that the ridges of plastic mean there was a bit of a gap - but a bit of lace helped
hide it nicely!
The sides I've added some Inkagold, then stenciling, then die cuts, then gesso!
I did the same to the top:)
After this, it was a bit of decoration & we were done!!!
The wicker chair gave me the inspiration for the name tags on each little container:
And 'in situ':
I know this is a long post.....to match the long time this took!!!! And I'm sure some of you
will have a giggle at how few flowers I actually have!!!
So....vintage.....what does that mean to you? Hoping you join us at ARTastic this month!
