Happy Monday to ya...again

I'm back with another challenge from Tiffany at ScrapTiffany. This week Tiffany challenged us to do something VINTAGE.

YIKES...vintage...ME?  Really? If you follow me at all, you know that vintage is not what I do. Don't get me wrong...I love looking at it and admire people who can do's just not my thing. When I saw "vintage", I seriously thought about calling in sick on this one. (Big breath in) But, I decided to put my big girl pants on and go for it. 

The first thing I did was ask around about doing a vintage project. I was pretty much told to do what feels right to me. Then I looked up the word on, here is what it says the definition of vintage is:


of or pertaining to wines or winemaking.

being of a specified vintage: Vintage wines are usually more expensive than nonvintage wines.

representing the high quality of a past time: vintage cars; vintage movies.

old-fashioned or obsolete: vintage jokes

being the best of its kind: They praised the play as vintage O'Neill.

Ok whew, it didn't say anyting about lace, feathers, pearls etc. etc.

What I did think is that it basically means...old, I can do old.

Here is my version of Vintage:

I started out with a new picture of an old (vintage) tractor. I used A LOT of vintage photo Distress Ink on it to really dull the color. Then I just really distressed all of the edges of the paper and kinda dirtied everything up. 

I hope you enjoy my version of sure to stop over at ScrapTiffany and see what the rest of the design team came up with for Vintage.

  2. I think you're interpretation of vintage is spot on. LOL You're too smart. :)

  3. Fabulous take on the vintage challenge - it was a toughie wasn't it!

  4. You make me SMILE! I love your take on vintage! Maybe the scrapbooking world should come up with another "style" we can call it something like "K-vintage" or "Kristina-Vintage"... :-)

  5. I looked up the definition, too! You did awesome using the distressing and getting the vintage feel.

  6. What a fun take on vintage. I can't do the traditional vintage colors without a pop of color so I know where you were coming fro,. Great layout!
