I seem to have discovered a love for all things vintage as well as finding myself looking at loads of altered art, mixed media and textile arts sites. I've always loved looking at this kind of work but thought it was something I was unable to achieve but now I think it's about time I gave it a go! I mean, art and craft is all about having fun in the process and well, if something good comes out at the end then that's a bonus LOL! I made this card today, not for any reason in particular but just because I wanted to have a play. Hopefully my style will improve/evolve if I keep playing: I used: Kraft card from my Crafty Templates prize, image from Ebay CD, paper by, text from vintage children's book, Prima flower, vintage glass button and necklace, Shimmerz, lace, K&Co metal sticker, Marcella metal word, MM safety pin, Tibetan silver heart charm and Distress inks.
