A new blog on the block

Are you vintage or shabby chic inspired?
Do you like a good challenge?
P1150690
Then there’s a new challenge blog that could be right up your street.

Starting Friday the 7th March ‘A Vintage Journey’ will open it’s doors for anyone who loves to make projects with a vintage, shabby chic or mixed-media focus and would like to join us.

We have the most AMAZING  Design Team of super talented artists to inspire you who all love to focus on the style, techniques, products and ideas of Tim Holtz, we will use distress inks, distress paints, distress stains and lots of Idea-Ology including metal trinkets and embellishments to help inspire you and of course rubber stamps, dies, embossing powders and folders. Our aim is to show you projects that have a Tim Holtz link or focus and demonstrate how these can be used with products from other companies that many of like to use too.

The challenges will be fortnightly and in between we will provide you with technique tutorials or step by step processes to get your creative juices flowing.

We accept all types of projects like cards, albums, 3D assemblage, scrapbook layouts and pages, tags, frames, shadow boxes and anything else as long it is in a shabby vintage style.

We have a regular sponsor – Country View Crafts - who will be giving the fortnightly winner a £10 voucher to spend at their on-line store.

So please do pop over and become a follower so that you can keep track of what we are doing in your blog reader. We are really looking forward to beginning a new creative and vintage journey with you.

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you on this vintage journey sometime.

hugs Brenda xx
