Courage To Imagine Mixed Media Assemblage Plaque

Hello!  Just popping in quickly to let you know I am hosting over at Southern Ridge Trading Company's challenge blog today and have a tutorial to share with you for my Courage To Imagine mixed media assemblage plaque.

Our August challenge theme at Southern Ridge is Anything Goes and while I love the possibilities of an anything goes challenge I usually have a heck of a time deciding what to make, too many ideas running about my noggin!  So I decided to fall back upon my love of all things vintage and combined lots of lovely chipboard embellishments from Southern Ridge Trading Company with a plethora of Tim Holtz goodness :O)

Hope you'll be able to pop by to see how I made it and that you will be inspired to join in our August challenge, you have a chance to win 4 designs from the online store - - a $20.00 (before tax) retail value of YOUR OWN CHOOSING!  See you there!

  4. Great plaque Deb and the style of the layout would make a nice card for a man too. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy crafty weekend, Angela x

  5. This is fabulous Deb, it's always good to have ideas for men. I know just what you mean about Anything Goes except my mind goes blank and I think ' I haven't got anything that I could possibly use' lol. It's good to see the Union Flag banner up there. Have a great weekend xx

  6. Great looking plaque. You always manage to put something spectacular together

  7. What a terrific masculine plaque - I love the pennants, and those fabulous tiny gilded gears - brilliant!
