Home Sweet Home - A Vintage Journey


Hi fellow bloggers, thanks so much for stopping by today to see my DT post for A Vintage Journey. Jennie is hosting this months challenge called Home Sweet Home and we have to incorporate in to our design what sums up home for us all. I love having vintage touches around my home so I decided to make a wall hanging for my bedroom, incorporating a lot of my favourite things.


I started off with an MDF Ornate Frame which measures 11'' x 8'' that my daughter purchased for me in America  applying paint with Cut n Dry Foam.


Stamping Andy Skinner's Industrial Stamp set.


Next adding some gilding flakes to some areas.


Finally adding a thick layer of Crackle Glaze and rubbing over some Distress ink when dry to highlight the cracks.


Onto some Grey board I stencilled some Crackle paste and added a little paint to the background and a little Black Distress Paint paint to the perimeter.


My paper I had to join as it was a 6x6 pad but I wasn't concerned about the join as I new it would be hidden when finished. I gathered my paper and highlighted with Distress ink, tattered the edges and added stitching and lace for detail. Also adding little pieces of lace ribbon which I had coloured with Milled Lavender Distress Paint. I glued my paper in place with a little Cheesecloth added into areas.


I glued my image on to an MDF Oval rubbing back the edges of my print with a baby wipe. I highlighted her necklace with some gems and her hairpiece with a couple of buttons and gems.


I love Cherubs and have a few around my house so I wanted to add one into my design. On my resin cherub I added a little paint to his sheet and a layer of crackle glaze and once dry a little Distress ink was rubbed over. My metal leaves had a little gilding wax added to them.

Finally finishing off with lots of pearls.

  8. This is so elegant, Julie, with such a glamorous touch of sparkle. I can imagine it gracing the walls of your bedroom - must be quite the boudoir!! I'm a big Lily Elsie fan, and this is one of my favourite photos of her - and you've really given her a perfect setting to show her off.
