Trust yourself - a vintage project by Marietta Tegi

Today I have a vintage-style project for you. This is my second favourite style after steampunk.

I chose AB studio chipboard as a base, on which I applied white gesso with a sponge, and then white crackle paste. So I got a slightly grainy surface on which I coloured liquid acrylics. I got this result with the following shades: Umber, Ink Black, Carmine, True Yellow, Burnt Sienna and Avocado Green.

I used liquid acrylic paints for the mould elements. I used Ink Black and Avocado Green for the leaves, Burnt Sienna, Umber and True Yellow for the frames. 

I chose Hazelnut metallique paint for the chipboard roman numerals and cogs.

Before assembly, I put paper under a small part of the chipboard base.

I also added tree branches and metal flower- leaves and gear chipboard.

Finally, I sprinkled on some granular decorative elements. I stamped and spattered in places.
