Vintage Page Designs Sneak Peek

Hi there blog friends! 

This is a very exciting post because I'm here as a new design team member for a fabulous, online, honestly vintage store for crafters, artists and decorators.  Vintage Page Designs -  Ali Manning (you all may remember her as one of the co-founders of Gingersnaps Creations) has a vast and gorgeous collection of fabulous vintage items, such as ephemera, old book pages, maps, sheet music, vintage trim and findings as well as themed kits. 

Ali has some outstanding creative ideas and creations for wedding favors as well as other events in her store.  If you like vintage you'll LOVE what Ali is offering.  She shows off some of her products on her blog - you'll want to sign up for regular mailings so you don't miss her fabulous inspirations.  

Today, we're sharing a sneek peak of her vintage bird kit, just one of her themed Vintage Page Kits.  Each kit contains 20+ unique vintage elemets - nothing is reproduced or altered.  They're all hand selected and created around a theme to allow the artist to create beautifully coordinated pieces of work. 

I hope you'll check out Ali's fabulous store.  Before I became part of her first design team for Vintage Page Designs, I purchased a package of vintage pages and was astounded by the pristine condition as well as Ali's surprise packaging - it's all wrapped to use in your art.

For the month of May the Vintage Page Designs, design team will be showcasing Ali's vintage Bird Kit.  Here's a wall hanging I made for the "Grand Opening".

I purchased some thin wooden hearts from my local craft store and layered them with papers from the vintage bird kit.  After applying Distress Stains, some acrylic paint for highlighting, I stamped silhouette stamps from my collection of rubber stamps for backgrounds for the vintage birds. I sprayed the painted background with Perfect Pearls Mist "Perfect Pearl" for some "pool" reflection.  The gorgeous antique seam binding was included in the kit as was the real butcher twine.  The nest, flowers and fragment embellishments were from my stash.  I didn't post a photo of the back of this wall hanging, but it is covered with vintage pages from this kit too. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Please do check out Vintage Page Designs etsy store and discover this vintage treasure chest.
