owdy everybody! Today I will be sharing with you a project carrying that Vintage Vibe! Here she comes the queen of the the household…Gilli Rockability!
Okay I love to go to flea markets, garage sales, you name it…LOL I have sooo much fun going through all the things…not only because they have some aesthetic appeal but also of its past. Each piece in my view was important to someone..was designed by somebody…and made a lot of difference somewhere. Each piece has more then one meaning and should be admired : ). I treasure each one of my finds.
I think it is super cute to mix old and new…find a new life in an old object. I try to incorporate pieces here and there in my space as much as I can…(maybe too much lol).
Gilli Rockability comes to bring this vintage vibe…a time of no ipods..PCs…or smart phones! A time where everything seems looked so romantic and the impossible was the goal!
I tried to evoke this time period in my little project…how about that refrigerator ha? LOL. I used copic markers to color Gilli. The papers used for this project are cryogen (super good for coloring with copics), regular cardstock and patterned papers from DCWV and K & Co. Flowers and Ribbons from personal collection. The little lacy border is a piece punched using Martha Stewart punch. All pieces were distressed using Distress inks. A true rockability would never dare be without earrings LOL so I used tiny little rhinestones for this effect. The wall clock was made using a clear button, regular cardstock and copic multiliners (as you can see I have before and after pictures of it…since I decide to pull a nice metallic feel to it.). To finalize a cutsey bow with a flower and a pearl! Ahh the old times…so nostalgic..so romantic…: )
