DT Use it Tuesday - A beloved favorite

It is the 2nd Tuesday of the month, so it's time for a new challenge at Use it Tuesday. This time we ask you to use your beloved favorite. This can be anything in your stash: a favorite paper, a favorite embellishment or a favorite collection. Just anything you thought was too pretty to use.

This DT term is also coming to an end, so check out their DT Call!! Use it Tuesday was my very DT I was on and I had such a blast for the last 2 terms!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***
I decided to make a mixed media canvas this time and wanted to use a really old photo, one of my grandfather with his parents and siblings. This photo is taken in the early 30's and I just love this photo, it is one of my beloved favorites. I went for a vintage style canvas, of course because that would match the photo best. The vintage papers en elements were in my stash for about 9 years!



Gesso, Golden acrylic paint, Liquitex modeling paste, Prima / Donna Downey masks, Mod Podge, Distress Inks Antique Linen & Walnut Stain, burlap, camera washi tape, vintage papers & elements (unknown)

Now it is your turn to use your stash and share your beloved favorite with us. Link up your project to the Use it Tuesday blog for your chance to be our guest designer at one of our upcoming challenges!

Don't forget we are on Facebook too, so we would love if you stop by and say hi!

Thanks for stopping by today!
