hello there!! i am here to showcase the Vintage Kitchen line by Eileen Hull. You can check out the entire Vintage Kitchen Sizzix collection HERE (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/catalog#q=Vintage+Kitchen&facets=designer~eileen-hull&page=1). as well as see my original post showing my sneak peaks here
Well with this month’s Art with Heart (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/2014/11/art-with-heart-challenge-november-favorite-recipes NULL.html) challenge theme being Favorite Recipes, and since we are getting so much closer to the release date, we have been asked to show you how these dies can be used.
I started out creating this little vintage oven. i just knew when i started it it had to be teal and it had to be enamelled. i started out by painting the whole thing then once dry i created the back white portion using Rangers enamel accents. i then proceeded to coat with embossing ink and heat setting UTEE until the whole oven was coated. when working the top of the oven i dropped the ‘elements’ into the hot UTEE. the oven handle was a quick idea using a label pull which i bent over the oven door. to finish off this project i used some left over mat board which i shaped into a mini book and enamelled to make the glass front in the door
for my next project i was given the loaf pan die cut. so when is a loaf pan not a loaf pan…. when it is a pincushion!!
i started off by running it through my vagabond using the measuring embossing folder. i then covered the whole thing using distress inks, sanded and then using Archival ink i hit all hit spots to darken. i then coated the whole thing with gel medium because i wanted to be able to handle it for years to come.
and last but not least here is my take using the canister
for the canister i stared off cutting out the heart on what was to be the front and back of my canister. i then used various stencils and art anthology velvets and stone effects along with a couple of stamps and sandcastle coloration to complete the outside of my project
absolutely loved the different dimensions this gave in both texture and sight. i wish you could touch it!
to finish off my canister i added some idea-ology pieces to the lid and bottom to create legs. inside is a battery operated tea light
i hope you enjoyed my little review and had the opportunity to catch Eileen when she was on the paper trail.i also hope you have taken the opportunity this month to not only view all the pieces created by the design team but play along with Art with Heart Challenge!!
you never know when one of these may end up coming to live with you for you to create your very own!
