Though the Years

Have you ever had an embellishment that is perfect for a layout but the color is slightly off or it looks too new for your vintage vibe? Boy do I have the solution for you.

I was looking for some numbers in order to put the year of my car on this layout. I didn't like the ones I had, the colors were a little too bright so I sanded them down a little bit and then rub some ink on them in more desirable colors. I love how they turned out, they look a little aged just like my car.

I also sanded the metal circle embellishments so that they didn't look so new and this brought out the silver background of the embellishment.
I hope this helps you with your future layouts.
