November #33 - The Colour Blue

Welcome to November where in the northern hemisphere the nights are drawing in fast and the days are getting colder. Gardens and parks are littered with fallen leaves and soon we can expect to wake to frosty mornings and hopefully some fine wintry skies. So often in the winter season the colour blue comes into our craft work and Doreen has chosen this as our new theme.

Let's see what the team have been up to and how they have interpreted -
'The Colour Blue'



Hello to you all, I have had the pleasure of picking the challenge this month, everyone knows I am hooked on the colour Blue.
The details for this can be found over on my blog



Hello there! Rachel here with my take on Doreen's beautiful Blue theme - I love to see blue on Christmas cards so I'm taking full advantage of that here! Here's my first make:

You can find out about the products I used and how I made it on my blog here.



To our new challenge I prepared a blue winter tag with one of the very favourite crazy birds by Tim Holtz. Step by step tutorial on my blog.


For my first creation for Doreen's theme I used various of blue toned distress inks and the wrinkle free distress technique to create my background. Do pop over at Addicted to Art  for more details today.


Blue is different for me at different times of the year.  Since Doreen is looking for The Colour Blue in November, my blues have taken on quite a wintry hue.  I also found myself reaching for birds to sit against my blue backgrounds... so this tag gave me the chance to ink up Dina Wakley's Scribbly Birds for the first time.  Come over to Words and Pictures if you'd like to see more details.

As it's now November and turning a little bit chilly, my guys have all got their wooly coats on. More details can be found here on my blog x


For my first "blue" project I have made a simple tag using an array of blue Distress Inks and some recycled bits and pieces from previous projects. Do join me over on my blog if you would like to see more.



A wintry canvas from me today which has numerous blue tones in it. I loved using a whole range of dies and punches to create the dimensional snowflakes and various glitters to add sparkle to give that cold winters morning feel to it.



Wow! how quick is time going? Here we are again with another Challenge chosen for us by the very talented Doreen. I love the colour blue, it's not my favourite colour, but definitely up there.

I'm happy to share this little wall board all the details can be found


So we're off and looking forward to seeing your blue entries this month. Don't forget there's a £20 voucher for the winner from Country View Crafts.

We'll be back soon with more inspiration from the design team soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

hugs Brenda  xxx
