Two Vintage Layouts By Lisa Griffith

Hello crafty friends!! I have prepared two layouts 
this month, both in my favourite vintage style.

'Spread Your Wings'

I love finding vintage photographs on Pinterest and this one caught my eye for the 
lovely girls and the beautiful patterns in their clothes. 

I used the following 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces:
'Mini Branches'
'Doily Frames'
'Birds Set'
'Leafy Shrub Set 1'

I painted the 'Birds Set' with black acrylic paint and then lightly brushed 
on some metallic silver paint to give the wings some motion.

For the 'Doily Frame' and the 'Leafy Shrub Set' I embossed them both
 with sparkly black embossing powder to add some shine.

And the last chipboard piece I used, the 'Mini Branches'. I firstly coated them with white gesso,
then I painted them with bright green watercolor paint and then stamped them in black ink.

'Miss Potter'

This is a photograph I found on Pinterest of Beatrix Potter with her pet mouse. 
Who remembers falling in love with all of her sweet little animal characters?

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
'Corner Thick Vine'
'Brick Panel'

For the 'Brick Panel' I kept it simple with some brown ink, and for the 'Corner Thick Vines' 
I painted them white, and then splashed them with some pink mist to give it a weathered look.

I hope you have found a little inspiration today :)
