Framed Vintage Inspired Library Pocket Floral Collage

Lately, my style has leaned towards “Clean and Simple”.

But sometimes I like to get inky and create a project with a vintage feel.

The Framed Library Pocket Floral Collage uses the Library Card Die Set from

the Maker’s Movement and beautiful papers from Kaisercraft’s Flower Shoppe Collection.

A few project details:

  • I cut a thin frame out of woodgrain scrapbook paper and the nested rectangle dies. 
  • I used a combination of ribbon and trims to wrap around the library pocket.
  • I filled the library pocket with floral bits & pieces.  Some popped up with 3D foam squares, others backed with thin mat board scraps.  
  • The edges of the pieces were lightly inked using an ink applicator and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

A soft and delicate Vintage-Inspired Collage for Spring.

Architextures Vintage Market Collage

Vintage Market Collage

I had so much fun playing around with the 7 Gypsies Architext Paper Pad*

It’s my new favorite.  It reminds me of going to the Flea Market with my daughter.

So much Vintage Goodness.

The project was basically put together with paper, glue and chipboard.

To begin…I glued the background paper to a thick piece of chipboard for stability.

I can easily add it to an 8″ x 8″  frame later if I want too.

I added several layers of chipboard on the back of each of the images to give dimension.

I also aged each piece by rubbing Vintage Photo Distress Ink* to the edges using a

Ink Blending Tool*.    (*amazon affiliate link)

My favorite piece is the vintage crate.  I added the second layer of chipboard with three small

strips, so that I could leave an opening on the top to add dried flowers from last years garden.

So realistic, it looks like a teeny tiny crate.  I just love it.

The Architextures™ Paper Collection was inspired by the all the wonder of found objects, displays, signs, sayings, artwork, creative bliss and sheer beauty found at vintage fairs, flea markets, salvage yards, barn sales, antique shops, old book stores, garage sales, market days and more.

Such a fun collection.  Makes me want to go treasure hunting.

Notice the 7 Gypsies Mini Library Drawer* in the background of the picture?    (so stinkin cute)
