Hello crafty friends, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Mixed Media World, and theme chosen for us by Lena is Vintage. This month our fab sponser is The old Design Shop who is offering three images for the winner

                                                                       The Old Vintage Shop on Etsy
There are some fabulous designs from the team which you can see by following the link above, and here is mine.


On a Grey/whiteboard  tag from That's Crafty, I created lots of texture with heavy white gesso and  new brushes from Prima. Spray paint from Lyndys Stamp Gang, washi tape, Ranger, butterfly and stems die cuts from Sizzix, sentiments number is from Prima and the other is Ranger. Rust is Viva paper rust. 

Here are some close ups of the process




I hope we have inspired you to play along


I'm entering this tag into a Vintage Journey challenge which you can see here.

Take care as always
