Vintage Page Designs

I'm thrilled to be a guest designer for
this month.  Their theme is
She will be releasing her new kit this week 
and I'm one of the lucky one who got to create with it before everyone else!  :-)
I found this little box in a thrift store the other day and 
realized I could make it into the new recipe box I have been needing.
I covered it with pieces of the vintage pages that were in the kit 
and distressed it a bit using Ranger's Rusty Hinge distress Ink. 
 That colour matched the lovely fabric ribbon that was included in the kit 
The flower on top was also made with some of the vintage paper, 
punched out and sprayed with Tattered Angels mist 
and inked a bit with some more Rusty Hinge.
I also interspersed a couple of punched layers of blue cardstock.
I painted the metal details on the box with Plaid Folk Art acrylic paint.
(That was NOT such a good idea, as it was a major pain
 covering the box around those little tiny details)
On the front are some words from one of the pages
and I used a font by Finecrafted designs to make the "RECIPE" heading.
All in all, I'm pretty happy with the way it looks on my kitchen counter!
You have the entire month of July to participate in their 
Vintage Gentleman Challenge
and can find all the details here.
(and don't tell anyone, but you'll have a chance to win a $25.00 gift
certificate to Ali's wonderful shop!)
I'm excited to see what you create!
