Junkin' sure is FUN!

Amazing, fun, colorful art from Lynne!

Thanks Lynne for such fabulous inspiration!!! 

HOWDY.....Yvonne Blair Designs Fans!!!
I hope you had a WONDERFUL Memorial Day Weekend.
I also hope you had the opportunity to take a moment and remember
those who gave all for our Freedom!

Memorial Day signals the beginning of Summer,
yard sales and antiquing season....BRING IT ON!

I had the opportunity to do a bit of junkin' on Saturday.
I bought some lace, 36' of pull chain and some old books.

So....I figured I would combine my new "found" objects,
 and my new Distress Oxide Ink Pads!!

ALMOST TOOO MUCH LOVE all in one spot!
First, I watched Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Demo.
Then, I pulled out the little darlings and began to play.

I smeared,
I spritzed,
I dipped and rubbed.....
and created this BEAUTIFUL tag.

I pulled out a bit of vintage lace.
Next, I smeared the Distress Oxides on my craft mat
and spritzed with a bit of water.
With a flat brush I painted the lace. 

For the flower, I diecut a piece of vintage fabric.
I repeated the "smear and spritz" technique
and applied color to my flower.

I wanted to create leaves so I combined
fossilized amber and broken china to achieve the color green.
I then painted my new color onto a bit of Tissuestock.

I chose one of
