I've got a Creative Card posting over at A Vintage Journey

This year, the A Vintage Journey challenge blog is having a Creative Card posted by one of the Creative Guides on the 4th Friday of every month.

And I'm the lucky one to be doing the first post which has just gone live! 
 (the blog lives in England so is 5 hours ahead of me on the east coast of the USA).

Here is the Mixed Media card I created.
I'd love for you to check out my tutorial over at the A Vintage Journey blog here!

OMG Julia, such an awesome tutorial and love all those layers and techniques. I want/need some of those Seth Apter texture powder, you have convinced me to buy :) I wish you lived close by we could have so much fun.

Julia, I'm in awe of your mixed media skills. I'd love to take lessons from you. There are so many techniques I could learn. But meanwhile, thank you for the tutorial - great step-by-step! I love the finished result, especially the beautiful blue/gold patina on the edges.

This is fantastic, Julia! I was not sure where I should write my comment on your card, and I did it at the AVJ blog. Hideko :-)
