WW "Vintage"

Hi Everyone!
Happy Wednesday or Hump Day for some!
I can't believe it's June can you?
My kids will be out of school soon and AHHHH!!
I'm not ready for that.  Well, I am and I'm not.  I have some things planned for them but it's still overwhelming.  No summer camps here not this year at least.  We do have a road trip planned this summer to Boston.  What are you plans this summer?

I'm back again for another weekly Challenge over at Whimsical Designs.  This week is just up my alley. We had to create something with a vintage feel.  Most of my projects already have that feel and I absolutely love it.  I like other types but vintage is the one I go to the most. 

Here is my project:
I made a mixed media canvas. 

I used a 5x7 flat canvas I got the last visit to Boston last year.  I can't remember where I got them from.  I believe it's a store only up in the New England area.  
I used a stamp from StampersBest called Evening Walk.  They have the best image stamps around. 
I used some crepe paper for the some texture for the ground and moon.  I used some of my glimmer mist and Smooch spritz for the colors.  I then used some modeling paste with my Template from The Crafters Workshop called Mini Art Is.  I embossed some words from Cuttlebug embossing folders You and Friend.  Cut them out gesso it and then distress it with TH Vintage Photo Ranger Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Whimsical Designs stamps set "Whimsical Fun - Vol. 1".  I have been wanting to use this stamp for sometime and I finally got a chance.  I'm sure it's not the last time I use it.  I love this saying and I thought it was appropriate.  Lastly, I added a metal corner piece from Monica on facebook/scrapyard.  

I hope you all like it.  I missed the Mixed Media challenge in May, so I had to give this a try. 

This week our sponsor is Scrapping Memories.  They are generously offering a prize of 5 free files of winner's choice on their site.  Awesome!!

So, stop on by Whimsical Designs for this challenge and future challenges and enter to win. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today. 

Have a great day and take care,

I love canvases, but rarely make one. I find them a bit intimidating. Yours is wonderful! Fellow DT sister, Julie O
