Hello Everyone! Jennie here from Live The Dream and I am your host for our next challenge. Thank you all for travelling with us on our ATC Challenge - what fabulously creative miniature pieces you all submitted. I hope you will enjoy our next challenge which is
WITH A FLOURISH
Have you ever noticed that much of Tim's packaging includes that fabulous flourish? It has always been one of my favourite Tim images, so for this challenge let's see what you can do with your flourishes! You might not have the "actual" Tim flourish but I am sure everyone has a flourish die or stamp in their stash which can get the shabby/vintage treatment.
Our challenge runs for two weeks and then a winner will be chosen by the team. The winner will receive a £10 shopping voucher from our host Country View Crafts on-line shop. We shall also be choosing three blog badge winners, our "Pinworthies" who will be pinned to our special winners Pinterest Board.
If you are unfamiliar with our rules you can find them HERE in our 'Travelling Instructions'. If your entry does not demonstrate one of the styles we are looking for and a clear, strong influence of Tim Holtz, then I am afraid you won't qualify for the prize. If you are unsure what we are after, you can find our interpretation HERE.
And so to our talented team of Creative Guides who have each crafted a project to help you on your journey. I am sure you will agree that each has created a masterpiece with their flourishes!
There are a few flourishes here using a Tonic header die and, of course, the famous flourish from Tim. This time I've focused on the grungier side of shabby because I adore the 'rusty' looks we can achieve. You can find more pictures and a step x step here.
