Pure Vintage - a Journal page with Astrid

Hello lovely Shimmerz friends, today I have a Journal Spread to share with you in my all time favourite vintage style.
I used some of my  favourite Shimmerz colours and products, here is the list:
Inklingz: Tarnished Treasures and Ruby Lost Her Slipper
Creameez: Black Cherry Soda
and last but not least one of the new Paste-Eez: The Cream Team
All available from the Store of course.
A vintage photo from my stash is the focal for this spread

Below some close ups where you can see how these lovely shimmery paints puddle and pool with the help of some water, over the textures created with extra thick Gesso, strips of lace, art stones and die cuts.

Here you can see the effect of the subtle colour of the Paste-Eez gorgeous soft texture paste
A few bits of background stamping for extra interest.


Don't you just love the gorgeous vintage pink hues? 

And like usual, the best bit, - if you want a free product, just mention my name when placing your order.

Thanks for your visit like always!
xxxxx
