Hello and happy Friday Try-Day:
Today, I wanted to share with you some of the "vintage" projects that have inspired me. To me, vintage means softer colors, lots of inking edges and distressing, and clusters---of ephemera, flowers, whatever. It doesn't necessarily have to be an actual vintage photo.
Check out these great projects from PINTEREST:
These flowers seem so simple to make. I will try them soon as I have some old books ready to cut up!
Lately, anything doily seems all the rage. This is so soft and beautiful!
I loved this layout because it shows that you don't have to use a vintage photo to use vintage products.
This one I loved becasue it does use a vintage photo, but also incorporates some more modern elements---successfully! I love the banner, and the scrabble tiles.
My new goal is to have a project of my own that the photos I post inspired. I truly can't promise anything, because as you know, life often gets in the way of crafting! But this week, I was inspired to use a really old family photo. Most of the people in my family do not get the whole scrapbooking thing, and I have been reluctant to use old photos.
I used an Echo Park Collection for this layout...
Here is a closeup of my "cluster".
I think that I'm gonna hook up with Cropstop's latest challenge, here, which is a project with three flowers on it.
So there you have it---If you try something vintage, shoot me a link---I'd love to look at it.
Thanks for stopping by...
