Inspired by a pretty mismatched teacup and saucer, I created this vintage page using some new Tim Holtz products.
I also used some old book pages to remind you that there is still another week to join our Use book pages challenge over at Try it on Tuesday; I hope to see you there (grin!).
I started by adding a piece vintage flower paper, from a Worn Wallpaper Scraps set from Tim Holtz, to the left-hand side of the page. It was stuck down using Liquitex matte gel medium which I used for all the paper elements. Then I tore a dictionary page and edged the pieces with black Faber-Castell marker before sticking them into place. When dry I outlined the word “vintage” at the bottom of the dictionary page with a black fine line marker. The rose was fussy cut from an old garden flowers book and I added some shadow using a Cold Grey Faber-Castell marker and outlined it using a black fine line marker. The wording were Quotations metallic stickers from Tim Holtz and read “It’s all perspective”, “Choose happiness” and “There is beauty in simplicity”. To finish, I added some gold dot outline stickers and black gemstones which I layered together.
As T Stands for Tuesday, here’s the mismatched teacup and saucer that inspired my page with my pot of green tea which I enjoyed whilst sat in the café gardens at Lytham Hall. I just loved the pink rose on the inside of the teacup and the pretty aqua green colour with the gold accents – Happy T Day everyone!
Hope that you’re all staying safe and well!
