Viktoriya Porechnaya designed an Antiques Treasure project in which she even used pieces of the Architextures packaging!

‘I completely fell in love with the Architextures line! I love the vintage style and unique objects. They are all ready to use and you can create your antique treasure easily with amazing result! I only added some vintage color touches with Tattered Angels paints to my project – how cool is that?!’ – excites Viktoriya.

Materials used:
7gypsies Architextures 8×8 Paper Pad
7gypsies Architextures Treasures Weathered Lady Statue
7gypsies Architextures Junque Pack – Parlour
Tattered Angels Glimmer mists: Verdigris and Tattered Leather
Tattered Angels Decor& DIY Sable
Thick cardboard


To start, choose the background paper- I chose a back side of the Stenciled Crate Paper from the 8×8 pad and cut various small frames from the Ornate Frames Paper.

Cut the big frame out from the same paper and glue it onto a thick cardboard to add dimension.

From the Junque Pack – Parlour, remove the piece of Old Wallpaper and stick on the the background-it’s so easy!

Add some vintage touches on the base – use stencil, sponge and Sable Decor&DIY paint.  Let it dry and then paint randomly with TA mists.

Add dark tones on edges of the big frame – use a sponge with remains of the DIY paint. This will give the frame more 3D look.

Glue the base and frames onto a thick cardboard to give them dimension and make them more sturdy.

To add layers and details use a small “metallic” frame from Parlour, cut out words from the packaging of the elements and some metal charms.

As the main feature, I chose Architextures Treasure – Weathered Lady Statue. Remove it from its packaging and stick onto your project. Easy too!!

Distress the edges and add splashes of TA mists for a more “vintage” look.
