Up - Cycled Flowers

Hi Everyone,

Today is my very first post hosting Destination Inspiration over at A Vintage Journey and I am nervously excited. I have had great fun making Upcycled Tattered Flowers, using Tim's Mini Tattered Floral dies.

I'd love for you to pop over HERE and see my Tutorial on what I used for up-cycling along with the techniques I used to achieve my results.

Before I go, I would like to give you a heads up on some changes coming at a Vintage Journey. 
On March the 6th we will be celebrating our first birthday and we will have a special challenge and some prizes for you. The most significant changes will be a move to a monthly challenge theme with a gift voucher of £20 from Country View Crafts. In future the winner will be chosen at by Random Org but we will continue with our top 3 Pinworthies and our Pinterest boards. The structure for the month will change and Fridays will very much be about projects and guests and Mondays will hold a completely new format of Destination Inspiration posts linked to a monthly menu of a product, a colour, a technique and a Substrate. Mix those four things with four Creative Guides and there will be some wonderful informative posts for you. Some of the months will include five weeks and when this happens you will see the return of our very popular Tag Fridays. So stay tuned and keep the date in your diary - don't forget the 6th March, but for now enjoy our current Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

  4. Good morning Julie, your tut is brilliant with so many ideas. The changes over at AVJ suit me perfectly, I struggle with 2 weeks and really would like to join in so a month is brilliant. I also think it is fair to choose the winner by random thingy....I don't enter to win and with the talent there I would never have stood a chance but I think some people are put off that the feel they don't ever have a chance to win. This is particularly true for people trying these challenges as a newbie to crafting. This will open up the challenge to everyone with an interest in a vintage journey. How exciting. Hugs xx

  6. Oh boy, these look amazing Julie! Off I go to get all the details! hugs :)
