Not my own aging. I'm having fun aging, and tinting paper. Most of the paper is vintage to begin with, I just give it extra character.
I don't have one way of aging paper. It's like painting to me. I have my own custom mixes I experiment with. A little of this, and a little of that.
Aged script on one of my aqua frames.
I have a bunch of little vintage mirrors with distressed silvering. I found them in the drawer of an antique box I purchased at an estate sale. They look good with vintage script.
More paper play.
This is not one of my wooden books. It's an actual long forgotten book I gave new life with script. The addition of aged French book pages, skeleton key, and my little dried rose buds make a nice bundle. I'm going a little bundle crazy right now.
See ya soon.

Very pretty, Rosemary! They make such a nice addition to a vignette. I love how it looks on that mirror, too.ReplyDelete
I love the frame you added the script page to! We're going on a road trip tomorrow, so I'm taking a stack of old book pages in the car to craft with. I'm not sure how well it's going to work traveling with a glue gun though! :0)ReplyDelete
I ♥ your mad skillz!ReplyDelete
Love a little bit of aging... on book paper. Not so fussed about my own years escaping me - lol.ReplyDelete
All gorgeous Rosemary!

So Beautiful.........like aReplyDelete
little trip to the past in the very nicest way! Love you blog and will be back to savor you pretties! You were talking about "rusting" up your crowns- want a hint? keep a litle shaker of cinnamon by- a tiny pit on wet paint is an amazing fooler- it dries into the paint- a bit will shed off or you can seal it all w/ clear- you can layer it under some paint and chip it off- your imagination is all you need
I love your frame with the script. I'd love you to share it at my link party if you get a chance: http://www.findingsilverpennies.com/2013/03/silver-pennies-sundays-link-party_31.htmlReplyDelete
Very sweet! The tinted paper gives the pages a real history.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous!! Great ideas for photography props...:)ReplyDelete
Such lovely work...another way to make vintage paper is to wet drawing paper (with no coatings) then sprinkle instant coffee grinds on them....take a brush and spread around along the edges....then as it dries, iron the paper...will give a flat but slightly crinkle look. The look is so real that fake land deeds in South America was made this way...cannot tell if it is real or not...looks so aged! You might want to try it.ReplyDelete
