fun, bright, vintage

this lo is done for a couple of things: first for the april challenge on scrappy jos forum! It is to see who will be the gdotm for may.second, for ruths new blog, ourvintageaffair. I fliped the sketch around.
the purple ppis marks paper co. your sunday best, and the green one is marks paper co. porch swing. the blue underneath is blue awning and the cream one is inked cs. all flowers and leaves are prima. Keyhole and key are tim holtz which I painted with crackle paint and then inked. the brads I pounded out. The tiny alphas I made, i cut them out and inked them. the larger alphas are felt, they were bright yellow but Ialso painted them with crackle paint and inked them also. the gimp and lace are from walmart. I also distressed and hand stitched and the green piece with mulberry embroidery floss.

this is a fun fun lo I did of valdo first time using a lwan mower! I had tons of fun with this lo, lots of glitter, hand stitching, and use of the fun pp! I sugar coated the chipboard and made the journal spot!
