Vintage Photograph

Hi All and welcome to Jumbled Crafts where today the post is for the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday. The theme for the next two weeks is A Vintage Photograph and you can make anything you like so long as it fits in with the theme. Great ideas from my team mates so I hope you will visit TIOT and maybe visit their blogs to find out more about the projects.


I found my Vintage photograph here and as it had a Paris theme I used a French paper design by With Wild Abandon. This was from a long time ago you now have to use the Etsy Shop to get papers etc from WWA.

Thought I would show you how I made the wrought iron frame

It started life as a very large Cornflakes Box that I cut up for the outside of the frame and the box middle

Cut into strips and stuck on the outer edges of the box, make a box the size and shape that you want.. After that I curled the strips and sprayed it all with black paint.


I made this up after seeing some things on here

Hope to see your makes for the challenge soon

Thank you for calling in

Love Chrissie xx
