Arty Girlz weekly challenge # 46 Vintage

This weeks Arty Girlz challenge is 'Vintage' so you could use a vintage photograph on your creation, give your creation an aged effect, or go shabby chic use old ribbon or lace etc. As always you choose the format for your creation.





This challenge is sponsored by 3d Jean Altered Art Supplies who have supplied a fantastic prize for one person to win jean from 3d jean is also our guest designer this week so go check out the challenge on Arty Girlz to see what the fabby prize is that's up for grabs and also to see jeans gorgeous skinny she made using some of the products from her shop which are in the prize this week.





Julie and i were also lucky enough to receive some goodies to use in our example this week to. Thanks Jean



Here's mine



I used the Atc frame kit for this one but left of the back section. I used my soldering iron tool to burn the pattern in to the wood and used one of the images of the Indian girl in the frame. twisted wire to make the hanging loop and drilled small hole in the frame to fix it on also did this at the bottom to add the Believe charm



for the box below i used medium sized round box painted it gold then over painted in white while it was tacky i used a crackle medium over the top for the aged crack look then cut out the transparent image and fixed her to the box you can s the crack through it looks kinda cool then rubbed the silver charm with gold paint and fixed it to the box.
