A Very Vintage Christmas (Guest Designer @ OCC)

Hello Everyone
This for me is a special post as I am thrilled to say I am the Guest Designer over at Our Creative Corner.
I was so honoured when I was approached to be the Guest Designer for December and the excitement kicked in all the more when I learnt that the challenge theme I would be creating my sample for was the wonderful theme A Very Vintage Christmas.

This gives you some information about the challenge theme:-

For this challenge we are abandoning traditional Christmas colours and are giving Christmas a Vintage tone. No reds, no greens, just neutrals.
The challenge here is to use a neutral palette….so think about shades of creamy hot chocolate, glistening white snow, rich dark sherry and mince pies, ivory candles, rustic wooden logs, roasting chestnuts and brown paper packages tied up with string!

This Christmas we want you to make anything you like – Cards, ATC’s, Tags, Scrapbooking, journals, Gifts, Altered art……anything you like….but please use only neutral colours from ice white, through to ivory and cream, beige to dark brown and black. You can also use metal embellishments, metal paints and stains.
Further details can be read over at the Our Creative Corner Blog where you can also view the stunning array of Designer Team samples shared earlier in the month.

Here is a sneaky peek of my interpretation of A Very Vintage Christmas, sorry but that is all I am allowed to share!
I really hope it has sparked some curiosity as to what I created and that you will visit  Our Creative Corner to view the project in full as I had such fun with this. childrendetailThank You so much to the Our Creative Corner DT to allow me to be part of OCC for December, such a lovely way to end this creative year.
Now to say Thank You to you for your visit to this post and if you decide to visit OCC to view the project in full, I appreciate that so much at this very busy time of the year.
