|Supplies: all patterned paper from Crate; all alphabet stickers from Basic Grey; heart tag & red twine from Canvas Corp.; enamel heart charm from C-Koop Beads; thread from DMC; milk cap from Jenni Bowlin True Vintage; eyelet trim & slide mount from my stash; vintage game card from Olla Podrida; buttons from Blumenthal Lansing; stamp from My Mind's Eye; ink from Clearsnap; yellow pencil from Faber-Castell; watercolor paints from Angora; pens from Zig.|
The technique I tried this week was using a slide mount as an embellishment. I love the faux vintage slide mounts that Crate Paper released as part of their "The Pier" collection. They inspired me to dig out some slide mounts that I've had since the 1990's. I used one of them as a frame for a "Pretty Kitty" vintage playing card.
I enhanced the slide mount, the heart tag, and the background paper on this layout with colored pencil, watercolor paint, and stamping. I also made a custom flower accent with a milk cap and eyelet trim.
The journaling reads: "Sweet Tina never really grew up. She stayed playful, loving to run, jump, and pounce."
Tina's real name is Valentina, hence all the "valentine-y" embellishments. We called her Tina for short.
Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog and checking out my latest project.
