Our post and postage challenge at Art Journal Journey is nearing it's completion; on Saturday we will be starting our new challenge with a good theme
and a lovely guest designer, so don't forget to drop in at the 1st and see
what's going on.
I made another A3 vintage page, using an image I found in my stash. The background was painted with a mix of gesso and titan buff, and after fixing the image to the middle I used a large flourish stamp to stamp rather randomly around the edges using rusty hinge DI. I added more stamping using archival black, a vintage envelope and some stamps.
At Tag Tuesday our them is photography. I made a 'camera' using an image and some squares of black cardstock. I glued 2 CI images behind some filmstrip foil.
The background is a page from an old Sears and Roebuck Catalogue from 1899. I scanned it, printed it out to size, matted it with some linen card and some browny-black card.
Here are the scans of 2 pages from the S&R catalogue, feel free to download and use them in your work if you like them.
And a couple of photos from sunny Sunday:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
