I mentioned that I love playing with altered art and mixed media. I am still very much a newbie at this and I don't know all the secrets, but I am experimenting and loving it.
This is another project inspired by the talented Rosemary @ Villabarnes. I love the way she has fun with aging and tinting paper.
This is my version!
I used old German dictionary pages and treated my paper bundle with Walnut Ink Antiquing Solution. I gave the top page only a wash with blue and silver paste after I thinned it down a bit!
I added string, a fresh rose and skeleton leaves. One can also use dried rose buds, but I was too impatient to wait for my roses to dry. I have four more roses hanging out to dry right now:)
I played some more with my little bundle and added a tea soaked scrap of lace!
I think I will be making a lot more of these!
You can often find me at these fabulous parties:
