Our Guest Team this year consists of four very talented girls from all over the globe. Each and one of them represent the current season and are creating projects with the Basics line that matches it.
Do you want to be the Winter Girl and create projects for us with Vintage Frost Basics? I will pick our Winter Girl from our Mood Board contributions. So if you want to be our guest, work our Mood Boards the very best you can and maybe YOU will be given the honour.
The time has come to introduce you to our beloved Summer Girl.

And here comes her three wonderful projects that she has created for us…
“To create the page I used a Maja Paper as base and layered a watercolor paper on top of it. I Applied texture pastes, mists and inks on the watercolor paper and proceeded to layer Maja Design Papers on top of it. The chipboard shapes were painted and embossed to give more texture.”
I used papers from the Vintage Summer Basics as well as the following:
Watercolor paper, Texture Pastes and Gesso,’Distress Inks, Shimmerz Mists, Prima Flowers, Burlap Fabric, White Foam Sheets, Buttons.
Her next project is a beautiful canvas frame.
Last, but not least, she has created a beautiful set of note cards for us… We thank Iris for being our guest and the beautiful project she created for us. I hope you have enjoyed Iris’s projects as much as we have. In September you will meet our Autumn Girl who will play with Vintage Autumn Basics. So don’t miss her…
