YAY, another frame done! Now that my Altered Bike Frame is all done I can move on. I have been dying to create with this Prima Altered TV Frame! I LOVE IT! Unlike the Altered Bike I toned it down a little. This way you can see each "RETRO" feature!
I used the stacked stars die in mustard seed distress glitter. This warm yellow really adds a vintage touch!
I wanted to create a drive in effect. I cut a family relatives card and added some film strip ribbon. So it appears as though we are right in the middle of a beach scene far right.
A little work went into the picture wheel die. I cut small pieces of a family relatives card to fit into each slot. I cut small 1" round chipboard from the movers and shapers die. Then created my own metal reels with a hole punch from the $1 Store. I distressed with the metallic paints and inks.
The film strip ribbon is an excellent nostalgic layer.
I cut some film strip from the mini film and ticket strip die. I added "FILM" cut out with the "WANTED" strip die font.
I cut up some paper pieces to create a bit of the poster effect behind the retro car.
I cut the small tickets, stamped then stacked and clipped into place. A few more reels and I used one of my grandmother's vintage buttons for the "switch"! Hot glued into place this button really adds to that vintage look. It looks like it's apart of the TV.
I love these letterpress wood letters! I painted the letters with tumbled glass distress paint then distress. I need a 2nd set of letters since it comes with 1 of each letter! So I used this scrabble "R" for my lack on a 2nd "R".
I tried not to over load! Which is hard for me. I love to layer.
I was thrilled when I saw this TV. What a great addition to my Media Room.
And this a great opportunity to play along with my new favorite challenge blog,A Vintage Journey! This is challenge #2, Say it with Words! Which I used "Retro Film" on my Retro TV!
