I had such a great Christmas. What a whirlwind of fun!
My last project before Christmas was to transform this train case screaming"Make me over"
This time I got my "paper" from Crafty Secrets an online craft store carrying vintage paper and art stamps. They Sent me a CD to tryout filled with vintage patterns and extras.
You can use the graphics on the CD just as they are or you can put them in photoshop, alter the colors, and layer on extras, like I did with the rose...Complete with great instructions!
The color of this suitcase was in the ball park of the paper I choose
I simply printed the vintage pattern onto regular copy paper
Then Mod Podged it onto the suitcase. One little tip is to brush the Mod Podge onto the suitcase and then lay the paper on top, if you get to heavy applying the Mod Podge, it may make the ink run...Bummer!
I finished the suitcase off by hot glueing (After trying many glues, hot glue was the only thing that did not bleed through and discolor the ribbon) ribbon over the seams and giving it a spray of Walnut ink for a little age.
I also used printed vintage paper from the CD on this cute little shelf
Both are headed to my booth at Orange Tree. We are in season at the antique mall between snowbirds and tourist, I'm having a crazy time trying to keep my booth stocked, and loving every minute of it!!
You won't want to miss my post on Thursday. I'm going to reveal my meanest comment (Hysterical) of 2011!
