Z of Zephyr - Gingham

So I was researching the Zephyr car for my Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Z entries and discovered that there was such a thing as zephyr gingham. I've always quite liked gingham fabric so thought this was another great thing to use in a Z journal page.
I had some plaid backgrounds I had done so used these for my page with some old advertising images, stamping with acrylic paint and finished with the simple stamping of the word, 'zephyr'.

Have decided this also fits for the Paper Artsy Patterns Challenge. This background was painted in a small journal at the same time that I painted the one I used for the Colour Mixing Challenge. Was really interesting finding out that there was this other name for fine cotton gingham. Such a classic and enduring patterned fabric.


  1. What an unusual word but you have taught me something new. We used. To have a Zephyr car in the 70s so that brought back memories.

  2. What a lovely Vintage look! And Zephyr Gingham is a new one on me so it's educational as well as beautiful!

  3. This is a new one to me too. Amazing how educational crafting is lol. Lovely piece with lots of detail

    1. Thanks for all your comments. It was fun for me to find out about this too :)
