Guest Designer for A Vintage Journey - Altered Fall "Welcome" Frame

Hello and happy "almost the weekend" everyone! I'm excited to share a project with you I've created especially for the wonderful folks over at A Vintage Journey today. A Vintage Journey is a challenge blog for those how love to make vintage/shabby projects and mixed media or journaling artwork, strongly influenced by the work of non-other than Tim Holtz. Each month, they invite a guest Creative Guide to join in the current challenge. This month's theme is "Home Sweet Home" and I was thrilled to be asked to play along!

Above, I've given you a bit of a teaser of the finished project. And this is what I started with...

A 99 cent frame from the local thrift shop.

You'll have to hop over to the A Vintage Journey blog to see how I transformed this into a wonderful Fall frame to welcome my family and friends when they enter my home this season. I've used a couple of my favorite Tim Holtz techniques and products, so be sure to check it out.

Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by today!
