Happy Mother’s Day Vintage-Style Home Decor

ScarletCalliope Moms Day 3

Disclaimer: I get a little detailed sometimes! I just love to share!

I went totally vintage on this project and I am in LOVE! I started off by painting a chipboard album page with gesso, then collaging some old book paper on it. Next, I distressed some scrapbook papers with white paint to tone the color down a little and then layered them with foam dots. I cut a photo with my decorative edge scissors, rubbed the edges with a stamp pad and added this on top of the scrapbook papers with foam dots.

I created all kinds of fun embellishments using bits of lace, crocheted doilies, sewing pattern paper and all sorts of vintage and vintage-style pretties. I’m so happy that I finally figured out how to use my paper punch on sewing pattern paper without it ripping. Are you ready for the secret?  Sandwich the pattern paper between two sheets of copy paper and punch away!

The paper rose with the tulle trim is from my friend, Michelle Duke, aka The Duchess, and the lace that I used to create the flower is from crafter extraordinaire, Jennifer Priest.

Of course my project has to have some gorgeous Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon. Don’t you love this vintage color?  It makes my vintage heart go pitter pat!  It’s called George and it’s part of the Oh Cecilia Collection.

And in true Vintage Girl style, I added a gorgeous rhinestone pin that I got in a swag bag from the Enchanted Affaire creative event that I went to last weekend. This rhinestone bling is from Lori Sparkly Franklin of Sparkly Heart Studio.

I added some pretty dew drops from The Robin’s Nest to my paper flower.

And some more dew drops to the side next to the vintage velvet and sequined ribbon.

More dew drops and some vintage colored plastic roses.

And finished off with the word LOVE in glittered chipboard.
