Mojo Monthly and Gingersnap twinchie swap

Hi all, this month over at Mojo Monthly the challenge this month was vintage, now I haven't really done vintage before and this month I did a vintage swap which I also wanted to add to mojo monthly but I enjoyed it so much I had a go at doing a vintage canvas so now I am able to put both through.  The swap was done with UK members of Gingersnap Creations, it was the first time I had ever done a twinchie, I hadn't ever done an inchie lol. So tonight I'm showing the canvas first than the twinchies and the swaps I received back.

I based my canvas on corsets and how they have been in fashion through the centuries, I really enjoyed doing this, but it did take a few days to complete and it doesn't look anything like I had in mind in the beginning.  I painted the canvas first with fresco paint, then stamped then painted with water down fresco paint.  I had seen somewhere the bird cage used as a skirt but where I don't know, I think it could have been when I was artsycrafts but I feel awful that I can't give credit to who gave me the inspiration.  Below are some close ups and at the end of the most is a material list.

The second project are the twinchies, I'm afraid I can't find where I put the material list for the ones I did oops, I used stampboard, then stamped with versamark, coloured with distress inks and then embellished with  crafty individuals glossy paper sheets (life's journey 1) and some TH fragments.  Below are the twinchies that I did for the swap .....................

And below are the stunning swaps I received, I have also added there blogs underneath.

I shall go top left to right, and then below left to right. Suze Bain, Annette GoatlyLaura LiddellAlexa Noble,    ValeriePetra.

Right such a long post but I'm ultra happy with my vintage month and even prouder of myself that I have done a creation that I think is worthy of mojo monthly.  Thanks for looking :-) Kezzy xxx
