Vintage Style Layout for Scrap Africa Mood Board No. 69

Hi there! It's time to wish you warmly welcome to the Scrap Africa Challenge again. This time we have an atmospheric vintagey mood board that could inspire an old times page, a travel page, or anything you feel up to creating!

You have until February 29th to join!

I used this sketch from Memuaris for my layout.

I am also joining the following challenges:

The Craft Stamper Take a Technique Challenge: Text me! The prompt was to use text or script background stamps or text paper in the projects. I stamped with an old fashioned script stamp through a cross shaped stencil. I also used the same stencil to cut shapes from two papers, one with the same script stamp and another where I had previously put gold paint through a weekday stencil.

For the C'est Magnifique Mixed Media Technique Challenge, I was to add texture to the background in three different ways. I used gesso, mists, and the cross stencil in the two ways I mentioned already. I don't know if this counts as background, but I also painted crackle texture onto one of the papers that I used for matting my photo.

At the Retro Kraft Shop Challenge, it was Anything Goes this month, as long as it is with a visible hint of the old-fashioned.

You're welcome to combine the Scrap Africa Challenges with as many other challenges as you like! Just make sure that you do not combine similar challenges together, i.e. mood board with another mood board or sketch with another sketch.

The top and bottom layers of the tag are re-used kraft tags from bought clothes, and even the twine was already there. I stamped the script on the top one and embossed it to bring in a pop of white, and added the middle layer from an old Basic Grey paper with a stained glass mosaic pattern. Onto the bottom one I glued a scrap piece of a previously made ATC background, also with some text stamping!

Thank you so much for your visit, and I wish you a very nice weekend!
