Vintage Journey Challenge - Create within a Frame

I was so pleased and super excited to be asked to join 
"A Vintage Journey" as a Guest Creative.
Thanks so much for having me this month as a guest.

Here is the blog post over at "A Vintage Journey"


Here is my post -  Adriana Bolzon. 
I have been a devoted Card maker for many years and have been
Scrapbooking and Paper Crafting for well over 16 years.  I love creating, inspiring others and experimenting with different techniques. It is a hobby and creative outlet, which I am totally passionate about. I believe that preserving memories are important, and scrapbooking is a great way to create lasting treasures.



My style is classic with a distressed, shabby chic and vintage twist, with lots of attention to details. Another passion is creating altered art pieces, turning everyday items into works of art.
I live in beautiful Australia with my husband & daughter. I have been on many Design Teams including KaiserCraft, ArtDeco- Couture Creations, Imagainarium Designs & Meg’s Garden.
I have been published in many magazines around the world.

You can find my creations here on my blog:


I was so pleased to be asked to join "A Vintage Journey" as a Guest Creative.


For this month's challenge you have to create something inside a frame. Whatever you use show us how you have incorporated a frame on your vintage; shabby; mixed-media; art journaling; industrial or steampunk project. We can't wait to see all of your creative framing ideas! 
Just go to this link VIntage Journey : for more information.

So for my project - I found a frame with a canvas quote inside of it. It is quite a nice size to hand on the wall. I love recycling and altering items for displaying around the home or to give as gifts, so I am going to alter this framed canvas to look more vintage & shabby chic! 
Here is my finished project!!

"Create your own DREAMS"




This is what it looked like before I altered it! 
Nice quote but a very plain display frame.




I applied a couple of coats of "Anna Griffin" white gesso on the frame and inside on the canvas background.
I applied some "Anna Griffin" texture paste inside the frame on to a
Anna Griffin stencil "Ironwork", once dry - I applied some Distress spray stain and Distress inks over the texture paste design. With a touch of gold embossing on the top of the textured design.


I sprayed inks, embossed all over the Imaginarium Designs chipboards frames, vines words & butterflies. Adding some pretty flowers here and there.




Imaganirium Designs  vines, butterflies, frame chipboards and words







so, I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project for this challenge
and I hope you can join in here in the fun, 
more details on how to enter are on the
Vintage Journey blog.

Thanks so much for having me here this month, 
Cheers

Sparkly Christmas - Couture Creations

Hi everyone, today I am super excited to share a layout that I have created with the New papers from the
Couture Creations "Be Merry & Bright & Be Merry & Classic". 

This christmas collection have two different papers pad with matching Diecut Ephemera,  dies cuts, stamp set and embellishments. I have used the Be Merry & Classic for my layout.

Here is my layout
"Sparkle" - With love at Christmas


The paper is the from the Be Merry and Classic, C0724911 I added some Gold & Red Glitter stars.
The colours of the Paper pad are very grey or silvery tones. I think the papers need a touch of burgundy tone papers and the gold glitter and silver adds a little sparkle.

Using the Be Merry and Classic stamp set C0724914
I stamped around the edges of the paper and inked a little soft green to give a bit of colour.





Using stars from the Be Merry and Classic Ephemera die cut set C0724913 & cut out
of plain stars die cut  "Swirling Layered Stars Set" C0724942, I layered them on top of each other glue dots.



The word title "Sparkle" is from the Be Merry and Classic word set C0724924
