Altered canvas with a vintage magazine cover

Here we are, first friday of the month and new challenge at TIMI CraftStamper magazine, where the theme is 'Anything goes' with stamping.
I made a canvas inspired by the incoming Summer (yessssss :-)), and my first visit to a Trash and Treasure market, where, beside other silly stuff, I found some vintage magazine, for just 1$ each! The one with the queen has the same age of my mom, I think it could be a nice gift. The other one...yes I cut it, I try not to be the kind of type that just keep things unused because are too beautiful, I rather use and show them.
Primo venerdi del mese e nuovo challenge sul blog di TIMI, dove il tema è ''Anything goes'. Io ho alterato un canvas con dei colori prettamente estivi (siiiii), e l'immagine focale è presa da una copertina di una rivista vintage, trovata ad un mercatino per 1 $! Si mi e' dispiaciuto tagliarla, però le cose belle dentro i cassetti, chi le vede?
Book pages as background, stamped furiously:
Crackle' texture and treasure gold
Old doilies as embellishments
These are the precious magazines from June 1953 and August 1963
Queste le riviste vintage, Giugno 1953, con l'incoronazione della regina(!!!) e Agosto 1963.

Che favola...!!! Colori solari, sì, ma anche dolcissimi e sognanti!!! I miei preferiti!! ;D Splendido lavoro e mi ha fatto molto sorridere il tuo "stamping furiously" :D :D sui fogli del libro. Un attacco di stamping compulsivo? :D Sei una forza, Gio!! E anche coraggiosa. Io non avrei mai osato ritagliare una rivista "antica", anche se come giustamente dici "in un cassetto non la vede nessuno"!! Bravissima, sei davvero un'artista!

The canvas is amazing! The colours are sizzling hot, the opposite of the heat in Scotland at the moment!!!
Love the addition of the doilies.

Wow! That's quite a swimming hat and you've given it a stunning setting! Glorious vivid colours and great echoes of the flowers in your doilies around the frame. Fantastic, Gio!
