I am the hostess for September over at A Vintage Journey and my challenge is: Box It Up!
This month our theme is boxes! Perhaps you will make a trunk or suitcase, some kind of package to hold a gift, or maybe make a card or journal page showing presents.
Just remember to ensure that you create in one of our preferred styles of vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.
I'll be posting a full tutorial over at A Vintage Journey on September 20th so I'm just sharing photos of my finished project here today.
I made a Halloween Haunted House Box using Eileen Hull's new House Ornament Die and some pieces from her House Pocket Die (window frames, chimney, roof trim and door!)
Here are the four sides of the house
And close ups of the creepies peeking out of all the windows and front door.
The bottom of the house box opens and inside I put a treat of Chocolate River Rock Candy that I found on Amazon, an appropriate earthy Halloween treat don't you think?!
So we hope you will join in on our A Vintage Journey September Challenge - and Box It Up - can't wait to see how the theme of a box inspires your creativity!
You'll find the challenge here, as well as lots of inspiration from the other Creative Guides! You have until Oct 3rd to link up your Box It Up projects!
