Getting Creative with Altered Projects

Free Product Give Away

 
In an earlier post, I shared some pictures with you of some great "finds" from some antique and vintage shops in the Spokane, WA area. I recently was at a great local shop in Poulsbo, WA where I found a couple of great things. I decided that I wanted to put both my love of stamping and my new love of vintage things and create a couple of altered projects. I hope you enjoy.
 
Chicken Wire Heart




 
   
What I loved about this heart when I found it was the sea foam green. This is really a popular vintage color. I am also a heart person. I am drawn to them ever since I was young. I even have a few heart tattoos. The Layered Alphabet stamp set has become one of my favorites in the catalog. Here are the supplies I used for this beautiful project.




 
A Nod to Grandparents
  



 
 
 
One of my newest interest is in antique and vintage frames! It has become such a trend to alter them using chicken wire, chalk boards, and more. I love how people are using empty frames as wall art too. I decided to use this beautiful white oval frame as a way to display my husband's picture of his grandparents. The new Affectionately yours specialty DSP is perfect for this. I just love the accents of copper that run through some of the papers. I decided that that would be my color focus for this project.  Here are the supplies I used to make this vintage memory.



I hope you get inspired to try a little outside of the box when it come to your stamping. I think that Shelli Gardner would enjoy these two projects. I usually don't stamp a very vintage look, but I sure am getting more into it.
