I'm so excited about this week's theme over on Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge (CCC). It's called tinted vision fragments. I found this picture of my Dad several years ago and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it in a project - THIS IS IT! The picture is so telling of the time it was taken and just SCREAMS vintage to me!
I used a page from a chipboard book as the base for this wall hanging, covered it with paper from TH using Claudine's multi medium as adhesive. Sanded the edges and inked with vintage photo DI. Added the photo using this week's technique (see Tim's book, page 55 for details on the technique if you're interested - you can buy it directly from Tim's website HERE). Then used the mini grunge alpha set for the "King of the road" sentiment - I inked the letters heavily with Ranger's watermark resist ink and then brushed perfect pearls over them for a bronze shimmer. Did the same technique with the crown but used gold perfect pearls. Added the gears at the bottom. Here's a close up that shows the shimmery effect of the perfect pearls.
I hope you enjoyed this week's project - I'm having a blast! Hoping to get another post in this week for the Lots To Do challenge. Busy week at work, so I'll do my best! Stay cool til next time!
