Vintage Page Designs: Wearable Art

March 4, 2012

Wearable Art

We had a lazy Sunday today and I had some time to play.  I've been inspired by all the entries to Linda's Grungy Monday challenge - Wearable Art this week, but it's something totally out of my comfort zone.  So, today instead of playing it safe, I decided to take the challenge and try something new.

I figured a pin or brooch would be the most straightforward thing to attempt.  So, this is what I created on a piece of 2.5" x 2.5" grunge board.

The grunge board is covered with a piece of sheet music and some stamping.  I added an aged paper flower with a vintage hat pin, one of Tim's word sticks and hing clips.  I finished with a vintage flash card and typewriter key.  There's a little metal pin on back, but I don't think you need to see a picture of that!  Everything was adhered with soft or heavy weight gel medium.

Come and share what you've been working on today on my Facebook page.  I'm curious....

Hope you like it :)

Have a happy Monday!

This is wonderful! You've given me some inspiration --- I've never tried wearable art. I think it's time to create some... it.

Oh it is stunning! I am so behind that I have never tried any grunge. I'll have to give it a shot someday. With you as my inspiration I just may succeed.
