Desk Calendar

For my last Design Team Project, (I can't believe 6 months have gone by so quickly), I decided to make something that would take me through 2015, a desk calendar.

As my base I used a Maya Road ATC card holder, (such a versatile piece,) and added a few cardstock pieces to complete the year.

Using some papers from the Paper Studio Sara Teasdale collection and some narrow laces and trim, that add to the vintage feel, I covered each of the atc-size chipboard piece for my calendar then added some tiny calendar pieces that I printed from the internet.

Each of 6 cards are decorated slightly different with an array of petite flowers, beads, sequins, buttons, tiny bling pieces, and small vintage doily or applique pieces from the awesome kits at Zeus and Zoe's 

I had a great time creating a variety of different projects during the past 6 months with the supplies from these fun vintage kits, and I will get to enjoy this piece on my desk for the rest of the year. 

Thank you for the opportunity to design for you, thank you all for your support and don't forget to check out the shop for great vintage kits, embellishments and art supplies!

Altered frame - by DT Zanka

Today is my last post, ending my DT term for Zeus and Zoe DT.

I have saved some best pieces of my DT pack for this project:) It's an altered wooden frame, a wall piece.

Some close ups:
I adhered pieces of scrapbook papers and vintage prints to the frame, using mod podge.

A beautiful flower by Prima accompanied by vintage buttons and metal butterflies. Most of the embellishments I painted with gesso. The centre of the biggest button I filled up with the mini pearls.

For the background I used pieces of fabric and laces which I stained with glimmer mists.

Supplies: Papers, vintage prints, buttons, laces, flowers, metal embellishments : Zeus and Zoe
From my stash: chipboard text, glimmer mists , gesso, mini pearls, mod podge.

Thank you so much for our time together at Zeus and Zoe ! I had lots of fun working with the unique mix of brand and vintage items.
With love!

You Have Stolen My Heart with Dana

Hi Zeus and Zoe fans! Happy New Year! Dana here today sharing a winter themed layout of my favorite castle. I've been following the restoration of the Chateau de Gudanes, a castle in the south of France, and this is just one of the stunning photos of this gorgeous historic monument.

I layered several vintage magazine and sheet music pages under my photo. I also found a vintage calendar page in my Zeus and Zoe Kit that was perfect to document the month this photo was taken.

I tucked bit of beaded trim and lace between the layers of paper. I topped the photo with a sticker that reads "You have stolen my heart."

No layout is complete without a touch of bling! I love the vintage buttons from the Zeus and Zoe Etsy Shop!

I hope you are finding fun ways to stay warm during the winter months! Thanks for stopping by today!

~A Vintage Noel~

The 'Vintage/Rustic look' seems to be the 'in-thing' this year. I'd say I was just following the trend, but the truth is the whole look/feel is a choice I made for the new decor in my own living room. When it came to choosing a table set to go with my new sofa and chair, I went with what I liked, what felt warm and natural, what made me feel happy.

For my project this month I knew I wanted to make a Christmas banner, and it was easy once I decided to use the canvas banner pieces that came in my Zeus and Zoe   Design Team Package as a base.

I coffee-dyed some curtaining fabric and doilies, then covered the banners with the curtaining lace fabric to give the piece added texture and dimension. I cut a large doily in wedges to use as the last layer of the fringed edge of the banner topped with four different vintage laces, including a lovely traditional tatted trim edged in a nice festive green color.

 A smaller doily added to the centers of the banner pieces then topped with red glittered chipboard letters spelling "Noel" that I altered with some Donna Salazar Pralines and Cream fine glitter and some Lindy's Stamp Gang Steampunk Sepia Starburst Spray to give it a darker, more vintage look.

I alternated little white felt snowflakes and green holly leaves on the tops and bottoms of the banner for an added embellishment as well as tiny ribbon carnation flowers added to each top corner that I sprayed with some Lindy's Café au Lait Flat Fabio Spray and dabbed with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink to get them close to the Fig Brown color of the seam binding used to string the banner pieces together.

I absolutely LOVE the striking effect this beautiful banner has against the dark red color of my living room walls, it was the perfect touch to my decor and will become a lovely vintage piece that can be cherished for generations to come.

I hope you enjoy my project and I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with health and happiness!

I slid them inside each other then I taped  it shut by moistening the sticky part of envelope.
