Challenge 24 - Vintage (or at least looks like it)

Happy happy Tuesday dear friends - it's time for another challenge with us at Tuesday Alchemy.  This week our challenge is all about "vintage" or at least it looks like it is vintage.  As some of you already know I love love love vintage.  Makes me smile smile smile.

I created this altered clipboard with a vintage Paris Eiffel Tower theme.  I painted the metal on the clipboard with paint (but I sanded it first).  I wanted it to look really old and worn out.  I found some vintage looking cardstock and just started tearing it in big pieces.  Adhered it to the clipboard and inked all the edges with ink.  Added some brown ribbon, a vintage button and didn't seal this one with any sealant.  I wanted to keep it the way I made it.   I hope you like it and it inspires you to create something of your own.

I also hope you check out all the design teams projects for this challenge - there are amazing!!  Jump in and join us this week and I am really looking forward to seeing what you create.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Flonz, who will be giving one lucky crafter a $20 Store Voucher - WooHoo!!!  But that's not all . . Leo, Flonz's owner, will be picking his favorite creation & that crafter will win a $20 Store Voucher as well!  All the information is listed on our Tuesday Alchemy Blog.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
