TV Time 2011


OK, so I wanted to use this beautiful canvas that I got with my May Scrap That! kit super bad! I was trying to make a vintage type of layout so I dug in my old stash of Graphic 45 papers and October Afternoon papers, it was a perfect match. So as I was cutting up the papers, it needed something else and when I flipped the paper over it had a couple of TV schedules on it....so the theme became kind-of a vintage TV theme...it is timed for 2011 but in time this too will be vintage. LOL
I love the clock paper so much and can you believe I have used the same paper for several lo's? Its amazing! I do keep every scrap till there is absolutely nothing left to do with it.... hoarding?
The paper also had this adorable little crossword..so I was thinking it would go...remember the old TV guides? They always had crossword puzzles in them...my grandmother loved them every week. Lately, I have been using doilies for the past few lo's...so it was a must for a vintage project...I just chalked them blue. There were buttons on the Graphic 45 patterned paper so I added real ones too....it happened to be perfect for my little retro TV. It is just 2 rectangles layered with a couple of black strips for the antenna's. Super easy... :)
Now, the flowers in cream are paper...totally inspired by Prima flowers...tutorial coming soon.
