Vintage Chic Scrapbook

I took a workshop last weekend at the Donna Downey Studios in Huntersville, NC, which was taught by Donna Downey herself!


And this is what we made!

The workshop was so inspirational!

I had so much fun!

Her studio is awesome! You must visit it if you are ever in this area!

The pages are 6 x 9 pieces of cardboard that we painted with Gesso.
Then, the edges were inked with Viva Inka-Gold.
We decorated the pages with burlap, canvas, pennants,
 dollhouse frames, a Tim Holtz watch, flowers and all kinds of good stuff!

The photos were printed  on copy paper and crinkled up. I then distressed them with some Tea Stain Distress ink to make them look aged.
The album turned out absolutely beautiful!
This project was so different from anything that I had tried in the past.
I am so glad I went!

Thanks for stopping by!
