Vintage... One of a Kind Contest ~ Tag
My Scrappy Friends over at Vintage... 1 of a Kind sponsored a contest at my LSS to kick off their line of amazing vintage embellishment kits. Each kit is truly one of a kind, and created by hand by the folks at V1.
Here is my entry. I haven't done altered art previously, so this was a real challenge for me. I wanted my creation to tell a story.... I used Graphic 45 Baby to Bride paper and created a mythical Baby to Bride Shoppe in downtown San Francisco, circa 1906. I wanted my tag to look at though it was made from long forgotten "junk' drawer stuff. I also included a vintage calendar..... they were so popular for every shoppe to give away back in the day. I got the vintage calendar from the Crafty Secrets.
Here is my picture story of my first altered art creation....... moving from the Vintage... 1 of a Kind Kit I chose, through my initial planning and then the finished product. Enjoy :-)
