Hello Everyone, I'm Julie and I'm very happy to be invited as a Pinworthy Guest to A Vintage Journey.
I also love the tactile feel of textiles and decided to create a fabric cover for the book using various mediums and techniques, vintage lace, trims and beads. Again, full instructions are on my blog here if you’d like to take a peep? Throw in a favourite set of stamps by Crafty Individuals, distress inked cardstock cut with Tim Holtz’s Fall Foliage dies plus rusty wire and a few choice accessories and here’s my completed project. I hope you like my contribution to Autumn?
Thanks for taking the time to read about my creative exploits and inviting me over to A Vintage Journey.
Have a wonderful day and keep creating.
Hello everyone! I am Marzena aka Macarena and I am honored to have been chosen as a Pinworthy Mention and invited for Guest Designing today.
I live in Poland with my teenage son and a british shorthair fluffy and huge cat.
I have been crafting for about 6 years now getting each time more addicted to mixed media, textures, layers and rich projects. I love to get dirty with inks, sprays and paints watching how the project is being built and how it's in the end because I never have a vision of how it should finally look. I just let my imagination flow and spread my wings. The results are always a big surprise.
This is my CRAZY FOR AUTUMN COLORS card with a lot of embossing, inks, texture and layers. Hope you like it.
You can see more pics and products I used on my blog here.
Have a great day!
Fabulous autumnal creations one and all as I am sure you will agree! Thanks so much to our talented Pinworthies for sharing their art with us and hope that you've been inspired to join in our Crazy For Autumn Colours challenge, you have until November 2nd to get your entry in and we can't wait to see what you will create! Thanks again for stopping by today,

You're all worthy of pinning!

#33 Lula at u Luli
Just look at the extraordinary transformation of this unassuming alarm clock into a steampunk masterpiece. Lula took a really imaginative leap with this one, and it's full of brilliant details from every angle.
Do hop over to Lula's blog to see the full details.
#34 Pooja at Let's Get Crafty
Not only did Pooja use a pizza box as the substrate and lots of clothes labels and tags to build the layers, but she took apart a metal candle-holder to build the structure at the heart of her mixed media creation.
#36 Hélène a.k.a. 2amScrapper at Lotsa Scrap
A fantastic substrate here - Hélène has altered a specially chosen licence plate which has information related to her own life already on it, and created a rusty masterpiece full of personal meaning.
Take a trip over to Hélène's blog to find out more.
Congratulations to all our Pinworthies this month - fantastic projects all round. We'll be in touch shortly with your badges and an invitation to join us here at A Vintage Journey as a Guest Creative Guide in the future.
Once again, thank you to everybody who joined in with the challenge, and we hope you'll be inspired to come and play along this month in Jennie's wonderful Crazy For Autumn Colour theme, sponsored by the amazing Calico Craft Parts.
Join us on Monday to see who's arriving next at Destination Inspiration but, for now, have a great weekend and happy crafting all!
