Welcome to today's Guest Designer, Heather !

Today we are welcoming Heather of My Artistic Adventures as our Guest Designer. Heather was chosen as the DT winner of the Tags and Thank You challenge back in December. So let's move on and hear from Heather and find out what she's made for the current challenge, The Warmth of Winter.

I'm Heather a.k.a 'My Artistic Adventures.' I live in Michigan, with my Dear Hubby, two teenage sons, and two kittys.  I work full time as a RN with Ventilator Dependent Teens and in my spare time I love to be creative.  I love to find vintage images, alter them digitally and then create my own collage sheets, which I sell online.   I tend to create mostly hybrid projects, usually in the Vintage or Shabby Chic style.  I recently started my own challenge blog.   I also love to paint, particularly roses.   I was so excited when offered the opportunity to Guest Design here at Frilly and Funkie!

What says "Warmth" more than a sweet handmade gift, that reminds you of Spring or Summer? I thought that I would create a small origami box, created in the Vintage Shabby Chic style that I love so much.  

 I created my own digital paper, printed it out and followed a video on how to create the origami box.  I added some of my favorite Ribbons, trims, embellishments  and of course glitter!

I used one of my collage sheets to create a sweet little bracelet.  Feel free to stop by my blog to learn more about my creation.

I'm sure you will agree Heather's project is absolutely stunning and anyone would be over the moon to receive such a beautiful gift.

Remember if you would like to join us as Guest Designer, all you have to do is join in with the current challenge !
