Creating for the Logan Village Mall

I've been working on projects for the Logan Village Mall in Noblesville, Indiana: holiday banners, cards, and framed printed images on old book pages, among other things...

I painted frames that I purchased at Goodwill with three coats of Annie Sloan graphic colored chalk paint followed by wax.

I framed lace adhered to vintage wallpaper.

I loved the Graphics Fairy hand image so much that I made a Halloween banner with it.

This Thanksgiving banner can be hung as two separate words, 

or all together with a blank piece separating the words. I designed the tags. Did you notice the his and her hand on the pumpkin banner below?

Here is a heart shaped French script tag with tulle and a vintage flower. It could be used for a wedding gift or a special gift to hang somewhere.

Halloween and Fall cards...the cut out squirrel on the rose vintage wallpaper is adhered with adhesive foam mount squares. The fragile wallpaper was scanned into my computer so I could use it for more projects.

The boy in the rain image came from an ephemera book page. I added glitter to give dimension to the rain coming down. The daisy image came from a piece of vintage sheet music. Then I copied and pasted a number of them together to fill out the card. The large center daisy has another layer of the flower with glitter for added dimension. 

These words were welded together and cut out of black cardstock to use in scrapbooking or journaling.

I also cut them from vinyl so they could be adhered to a glass block or anything else. A string of lights can be inserted inside the glass block.

Also I have melted vintage albums into bowls of holiday colors.

I have so many ideas going through my brain! It's so nice to have a place to display and sell my Patty's Pretty Things!
