Winners and Pinworthies for our August Challenge: Watercolour .

Hello Everyone 

Welcome to our Winners and Pinworthies post for our August Challenge: Watercolour. 
We had some fabulous entries and the Creative Guides really enjoyed viewing your creations and selecting their favourites. You are all so talented!

So lets begin with the Winner of our Sponsored prize as selected by Random Generator...

Congratulations Monika!
Your prize details from our generous sponsors for this challenge, Craft Obsessions, will be with you shortly, as well as your Winners badge to display on your blog. 

Now on to our chosen Pinworthies. It is always difficult for us to narrow our choices down to just 3 with so many wonderful and worthy submissions but after much deliberation here are our Pinworthy winners.

In no particular order...

Congratulations to our Pinworthies. You certainly worked wonders with your watercolours! 
We will be in touch shortly with your badges and invitations to be Guest Designers here at A Vintage Journey in the near future. 

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us in this Challenge. We really do appreciate all your entries and always enjoy seeing all your creations.
We hope you will join us this month for Alison's fabulous challenge: 'Altered Art'.
All the Challenge details and an inspirational gallery of projects created by some of the Creative Guides can be located here. 
One of us will be back Monday to share the latest Destination Inspiration so until then
we wish you all a lovely weekend.

and all 
the Creative Guides
