November Challenges...

Yes I know! How on earth did November roll around so quickly! The only thing we can do is embrace it and what better way than to join in on some challenges?  Here is the new challenge at SCRAP AFRICA. Another stunning sketch from Denise:

 Here is my take on the challenge:   Wonderful Memories

I've used lots of Kaisercraft ephemera, 2Crafty Chipboard, Prima wood veneer cogs, crochet lace and some fantastic Graphic 45 month stamps. The clock Flair button is from Studio fourteenforty. I urge you all to call into the Scrap Africa blog and check out the most amazing DT inspiration :)


And another truly inspirational piece of art that Jane from ARTastic has given us this month to follow. The ONLY criteria is to use flowers on your project. Have I mentioned before that I'm in love with the Dylusion's paints at the moment? I just had to have another go at them in my Art Journal for this challenge.

Here is the inspo by Emma Uber entitled "Weeds". A beautiful, colourful, whimsical piece I must say by this talented Australian Artist :)

Here is my Art Journal page. The quote reads "Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds. You can grows flowers or you can grow weeds".

I used my fingers to apply the paint and then added a few sprays of water to spread it around. I added some fluffy white clouds and stamped some birds, butterflies and a music note stamp to the background. The Chameleon Colour Tone pens came in handy to create some of the flowers and I used a punch to created the flowers from a piece of music sheet.

I'd love to see what you can come up with and I'm sure a lot of you just love including flowers in your projects. As a side note, ARTastic is having a Design Team Call for 2016. Jane and all the ladies over at ARTastic are so easy and fun to work with. Pop on over to the blog and check out the details. Applications close on the 15th of THIS month.

Thanks for dropping by and have a fantastic week! xx
