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.

  1. Attach a base layer of scrapbook paper to the oblong plaque, sand the edges until smooth.
  2. 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.
  3. Tear a second layer of paper, making it slightly smaller than the first, again ink and apply before sanding the edges.
  1. Apply crackle paint or paste to the MDF clock and set aside to dry naturally.
  2. Add random stamping to areas of the paper which lack interest, I concentrated on the edges of the plaque.
  3. Colour the muslin with watered down distress ink and dry with a heat gun, glue to the base of the plaque with gel medium
  4. Add vintage themed ephemera to tie in with the theme, I used vintage postage stamps, a tram ticket and postcard ephemera.
  5. Mount your chosen paper doll on foam pads and position him or her to stand on the muslin.
  6. 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.

Hello All,

I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.

These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.

If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.

I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)

I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)

Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member https://amzn.to/3j1IcVp
