So, next challenge is………………….. antiqueness !Miwako:
I used a baby photo which was taken 40 years ago. (It was me!) This photo has naturally changed to feel past time, and then, I can use my finger only for distress because the paper becomes so weak. Also, I soaked jurnaling card and gaze into TEA. I used tea bag to get same color on 12inch paper, please see my blog if you want to know more details of the tecuniques. And dripped some vanilla essense at randam for the stains. You see the center letter paper and labels take waxwork,too. One buttom, ribbon and paper bobbin are real vintage.
one more layout of same taste. My process (using tea bag and stains) which is almost same my both layouts is up in my blog, please click and see it!
My aunt found this photo of the ship my grandpa served on in the navy and told me an interesting story to go with it that demanded to be scrapped. I used paper from Girls Paperie & LOTS of primas.
I used tea to stain some white paper and fabric flowers and ended up drying them with my heat gun to go along with this photo of me & my brothers from the 70's.
I used flea-market-found vintage trim, a doily, and a handwritten letter along with a photo of my grandmother as a little girl. Couple that with a handmade book-page flower for an antique touch. Detail shot on my blog.
