I decided to go with my usual Shabby Chic tag in faded dusty pastels. It is always so lovely working in lovely delicate vintage shades and also to add lots of flowers, ink, stamps, ribbons, lace, layers, torn paper and, of course, the essential - an inspiring sentiment. 



 Margie

 

For my very first Design Team project, I decorated this journal for a new crafting friend who is just 9 years old but has aspirations as a dress designer. I was longing to use the new Julie Nutting mixed media doll stamp mixed with some vintage scraps.



                                                                    Jenny



I always like to try new things or confront media or techniques that have so far been a challenge, so for my first Our Creative Corner project I tackled my nemesis - alcohol inks!! This little glass jar has been altered to within an inch of its life and it all started with alcohol inks


Julia


I've been learning mixed media and paint techniques with Andy Skinner and this is a club piece I finished recently. I think you'll either love him or hate him but he makes me swoon! The starting point was a plain bisque figure (cream coloured) designed by AS then many layers of Americana paint and Decoart mediums later, this is how he ended up.


RULES 


1.  You may enter each challenge a maximum of THREE times - but they must be different creations and posted on your blog separately.

3.  NO backlinking. Please do not enter a creation that was published on your blog before our challenge start date.
