Hello everyone! Today, I am trying out for the Sin City Stamps design team again. So, I want to share my "Treasures in the Attic" altered art piece for consideration. Once again, I am going to use a technique I learned from Finnabair. I have truly enjoyed my first two terms here with Sin City Stamps, and I hope I can continue for another term. Wish me luck, everyone, and please leave me a little love (comment) and let me know what you think of my piece.

Cut a piece of mat board and corrugated card board to 7" x 9". Adhere both pieces together for stability. Cut up scraps of corrugated cardboard to 3/4" x 5", 1-1/4" x 4-1/2", and 1-1/4" x 6", varying the directions of the corrugations.
Stamp chair onto a different print paper with vintage sepia ink, fussy cut.
gear on top of the flower. The other will be placed behind the Bingo Collage image. See photos for placement.
Adhere cream lace around the edges.
Glue metal corners down to each corner over the lace.
Lightly gesso over all pieces just added, i.e., the metal parts, lace, paper flowers and leaves.
Trim two G45 packaging tags to 2-1/4", then paint with white gesso. Allow to dry.
Lightly cover any paper images that you don't want to spritz with color with paper towel, and use all of the spray inks listed above to add color to the gessoed pieces, this time adding the Jazz Blue and Blue Hawaiian mists. Dry inks between coats so you do not muddy your colors.
Here are a few close-ups.
Scrunch up a piece of cream rayon ribbon, spritz with water, then spritz with orange, lemon, browns, and a touch of the blue ink sprays. Leave to dry in the scrunched up position to get a crumpled, vintage look. Allow to dry.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed my "Treasures in the Attic" piece today and will give some of these techniques a try. Sin City Stamps are the perfect accompaniment to all of your paper craft and altered art projects. Best of all, they have some amazing new product to go with their stamps, such as matching chipboard shapes, books, stencils, and masks.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
