Mags is here today with a beautiful shabby chic plaque featuring products from our November sponsor Samantha K Gifts and Crafts.Hello, today I would love to share a project created using the fabulous MDF shapes from Samantha K Gifts. The moment I set eyes upon the clock I fell in love. As some of you may know I adore vintage, shabby chic projects and this one is no exception.
The large plaque was a great shape and size and allowed me to include lots of vintage ephemera along with some Tim Holtz Paper Dolls.
To begin the project I attached several layers of torn and distressed scrapbook papers using gel medium.To add a shabby look I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edges
The next step was to add some stenciling using a 13 Arts stencil designed by Marta Lapkowska and a Ranger Archival Sepia ink pad.
Decoart Crackle Paste added more texture along the edges and around the corners, once dry a wash of Distress Oxide Vintage Photo highlighted the crackle .
Yet more texture was added at the base of the plaque using muslin coloured with watered down Vintage Photo ink.
The much loved ephemera added a travel theme to the whole project along with the clock.
