It's another canvas with a combination of Artistic Outpost stamps and Pion Papers (like the romantic canvas of last week).
This time I've used the wonderful Bluebird plate with some of the Pion Vintage Garden papers.
I started with a piece of white corrugated card, but things started to gather and grow, and in the end it needed a larger canvas as the base.
The Artistic Outpost images are stamped on some of my tea/coffee-dyed tags. I love these birds over the music manuscript...
... and they seemed perfect with the little Pion birds.
The bluebird boy is fast becoming one of my favourite images (he put in an appearance on my little hanging recently), and I edged his tag with some of the lovely typescript stamp from the same set.
That text also appears on the other little tags...
... and on the bunting in the top corner.
The flowers are by Wild Orchid, layered with some cheesecloth...
... and a little heart cut from the white corrugated card - inked of course - to link with the other side of the canvas.
I cut some kraft glassine with the Tim Holtz Doily, and also layered in some other pieces of kraft glassine in various places to add a bit of depth to the colour palette.
I added the lovely Thinking of You stamp to this little postcard from the papers.
And I just love this tiny little bird on the stamp...
I altered one of the Idea-ology bookplates with some layers of Distress Paint, wiping back and adding layers until I was happy with the look.
My trusty Hero Arts alphabet was pressed into action for the word Memories, stamped on another bit of tea/coffee stained tag, to go inside it.
There are doilies layered in too, and where they overlapped the edge, I folded them around to add decoration to the edges of the canvas.
Also around the edge I added music manuscript washi tape.
I not only like the look of this, but it came in very handy for securing the bunting too!
So there are my Golden Memories - hope you enjoyed the tour. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll be back touring around Craftyblogland with a bit more time soon, I hope...
Don't forget you've still got time to join in with the Artistic Outpost Referral Program this month.
All you need is at least one AO image to qualify for the prize draw. Hope to see you there, or elsewhere very soon!
Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.
True nostalgia is an ephemeral composition of disjointed memories.
