Welcome everyone to our August Challenge.

Our theme this month is Texture, chosen by the lovely Miriam. We love you taking part in our challenges so this month, don't forget Texture must be the main part of your projects to be in with a chance to win a £20 Gift Voucher.

Wow, it's August already.  This month it was my turn to choose the topic.  My choice - texture!  I love different textures and just want to touch them!  Texture can be created in so many ways and using so many mediums.
Here is my first project for the month

Pop over to my blog` to see how I created this.
I would love to see you join in with this challenge - don't forget, by joining in,  you will be in with a chance of winning a gift voucher to spend in the shop!

Welcome to August, July certainly was certainly fiery and let's hope the sun continues this month too. For our texture challenge I got out my  book pages, texture paste, acetate and lots of hot summer colours to make my card. 
I am hoping this will be me in my garden for the rest of the summer 😉 If you would like to see how I made my card just leap  slowly walk over to my blog here
Enjoy your summer and I hope you get some time for creativity too. 
Bye for now,

Here's my take on the texture challenge - there's texture paste and crazing crackle on here! Hope you have fun joining in!
