I'm hoping Blogger is going to stop playing up and allow me to get this posted as it's time for another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this time we're going for a vintage theme.
The great thing about playing with the DT over at Eclectic Ellapu is that you don't have to stick to cards or even papercrafts - it's eclectic you see, so anything is possible!
I decided to showcase a vintage metal trunk that I had painted during the summer - you remember summer, that time of warmth and sunshine without the dirty great piles of snow and ice everywhere! Sorry, I'm a bit fed up with all the winter weather here in New Jersey and we've another storm heading our way today :( Still these photos should warm you up a bit.........
This was a battered up metal trunk that I picked up out in Pennsylvania on one of our junking trips. I painted it an off-white colour with a chalk paint mixture I made myself and painted the inside grey. I then added a red stripe and roughly waxed the whole exterior to give it more of an aged look. I cut a vinyl stencil for the capital cities, using my Silhouette Cameo and painted the names using black acrylic paint.
