'find joy'

Hello everyone..hope you are all great!

I found a new Russian challenge blog a little while ago called Vintage Cafe Card Challenge,
and I saw a beautiful new theme they had going called 'French Vintage'.  

'find joy'

More details on the challenge you can find here....

We are pleased to offer you a new job))) of this we still have not)))
Need to make a card or page in the style of French Vintage
Accept work until October 25, inclusive)))

Style French vintage (vintage french) - it is nothing like a modern interpretation of the Norman style, particularly in handmade medium and style of Simplicity (Simplisiti), using specific prints.
   The main distinguishing features 5 style French vintage (vintage french):

1 Colour: white, maybe sometimes use shades gray-blue, cold pearly pink, cream, lavender, lilac, beige, gray and silver - gray.
2 Print (picture) - monochrome, retro styled under the more likely it is: logo, label, labels, etc.
3 Sophistication, some aristocratic.
4 Artificial aging - wear, patina, crackles, etc.
5 Easy. Simplisiti - clearly expressed the idea of ​​using the lowest possible decorative elements.

I loved the collage photos and I thought the 5 requisites were interesting. I love the look of really distressed white paint, so I though I would try to create a shabby page with only black and white......
 it was really hard to not add color!

Here are some close ups....

The paper is the new Epiphany line from Prima. I added lots of masking, stamping 
and some Blue Fern Studios chipboard that I painted white.

Until next time...
