Hello, Mags here ,today I am sharing a hanging plaque with a vintage travel theme.
I love vintage inspired projects that tell a story and this one certainly does.
- Attach a base layer of scrapbook paper to the oblong plaque, sand the edges until smooth.
- Tear a coordinating paper to create a second layer across opposite corners, ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink and apply with PVA glue. Sand the edges again to neaten.
- Tear a second layer of paper, making it slightly smaller than the first, again ink and apply before sanding the edges.
- Apply crackle paint or paste to the MDF clock and set aside to dry naturally.
- Add random stamping to areas of the paper which lack interest, I concentrated on the edges of the plaque.
- Colour the muslin with watered down distress ink and dry with a heat gun, glue to the base of the plaque with gel medium
- Add vintage themed ephemera to tie in with the theme, I used vintage postage stamps, a tram ticket and postcard ephemera.
- Mount your chosen paper doll on foam pads and position him or her to stand on the muslin.
- Finish the project by adding Distress ink to the dried crackle paste and then gluing the clock at the top half of the plaque as shown. Add a string hanger.
I would love to see what you create inspired by this project so please share in the Facebook group mentioning this blog post and tagging me.
Have fun and happy crafting.
