Vintage

 

Hi, Wendy K here from wendyscraftjournal.blogspot.com with my third hosting for Art Journal Journey. Thank you all for inviting me once again. This time I have chosen Vintage for my theme. One broad definition of vintage is: generally commercial artwork created from the 18th century through to the mid 20th century. In other words, it appears I am vintage. It is up to you how you wish to interpret this and I look forward to seeing all your pages. If you are still a bit confused have a look at Tim Holtz stuff, he does a lot of vintage.
For this double page I started by quickly writing all over the background, covering with a coat of gesso to tone it down and then adding some collage. I used an old envelope and made a little book of scraps of papers as a little journal.The picture of the wren is a card I made with some quotes in. You can see these on my blog. The right pocket at the bottom contains some feathers found in the garden. I painted the tree on the left to bring it into touch with the birds and leaves. Hopefully this page looks vintage.
Have fun.
