June Winner, Top3 & DTMSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the June Challenge The Written Word winners.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  So here are the June winner of our Challenge, Top Three and Design Team Member Special Mention.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!


 June winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...
Congratulations Aimeslee - your voucher will be with you shortly. Now over to Teresa

It was wonderful to see so many different ways of incorporating text into your projects.
 It was tough to narrow the entrants down, but here are my Top 3:

I love the graduating colour change in the background and the use of the layering. The stencilled leaves add subtle detail allowing the purple flower to stand out.

A beautiful journal spread with a wealth of colour and texture. The use of threads and fabric add interest and the way that the figure's face is framed really draws the eye in.

I love the timeworn feel of this piece and the rich colour combination. The stencilled and textured background adds depth and interest, recreating a rusted patina finish perfectly.

Special Mention goes to:

Sara Emily Barker Vintage Mail Folio #Tim Holtz #Ideaology #Distress #Sizzix Alterations #Stampers Anonymous

The attention to detail in this travel journal is incredible. There is so much to see, little tags and pockets, and vintage ephemera. Such a labour of love and a pleasure to see.


Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.

And don't forget there is still time to join us in our July Challenge In The Summer Garden
