I'd rather be in my garden

Hello everyone, 

I have another project to share for the 'Summer Fields' challenge. It is a mini art journal page but it could also be a card.

You'll find a step-by-step photo tutorial on my BLOG if you'd like to see how I made it. 

Thank you for stopping by today !

A "Country View"

Hello it's Jane here today with some more inspiration for our June "summer fields" challenge.
I am missing the "country views" we usually take in with our walks with my daughter and her family but I hope it is not too long before we can finally be together again.

I created my own "country view" from my imagination and if you would like to see how this grew was made, using an alcohol ink background, just pop on over to my blog here where a warm and sunny welcome awaits. 

Bye for now,

Summer Field of Birds

Good morning and happy Monday. It's Sue here with my canvas for our Summer Fields challenge.

This is a very unusual piece for me, as I've not used a single stamp! There are lots more photographs here on my blog if you would like to take a look.
Thanks so much for looking, take care and have a great month x

Hello everyone, 

First I'd like to thank everyone for all the fabulous entries into my 'Animal Magic' challenge. I have loved looking at each and every one of them. It was very difficult to chose only three but I managed to pick three favourites in the end. So here goes; my top three in no particular order:

1)  #77 - Rosmarie 

I love this card, especially how some of the rats have been places in the holes. Fabulous design! 

#85 - Emma T.

This is a great project, love how the cat is actually placed on a cats head shaped piece of MDF. Fabulous colours too ! 

#138 - Dee Adams 

I think this is my favourite entry this month! love the colours, the metallic details, the fish and the way the project has been put together. Fantastic ! 

A special mention goes to:

#55 - Sid

These zebra's are adorable ! Love them, great card! 

Miriam's May Tea Party winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is.

Hi Everyone,  Miriam here.

Firstly I want to thank you all for joining in with the Tea Party challenge.  I really love to see you how you all interpret my theme.  And they certainly cheered me up.

Here are my top 3 of the month:

1. Elle 

I love this so much - it incorporates two of my favourite things - Alice in Wonderland and Tea Parties.  Amazing mixed media project.  Pop over to Elle's blog to look at the full project.

This shows that less can be more.  I love the splash of colour in this journal page.  And the sarcasm in the quote made me chuckle!

3. Jo

I always love Jo's style, and I love everything about this journal page.  The colours are perfect and remind me of a hot summer in the garden, sipping tea.

And the Designer Special Mention this month goes to.....

DSP: Jane

Who doesn't love a shaped card?  This project is perfect for the tea party theme.  The papers remind me of old china and I love how the flowers work so well.  Perfect.

So there you have it - thank you so much to everyone that took the time to join in with the May challenge.

Happy crafting!

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 plenty of time to join us in our June Challenge hosted this month by the lovely Rachel with the theme Summer Fields

For the "summer fields" theme this month I made a double page in my art journal with poppies.
If you want to see more, please hop to my blog!
 Although it is not officially summer until 20th of this month the last few weeks have felt every bit like summer here in South East England. My grass verge has not be cut since Lockdown started and now looks like miniature summer dandelion fields which inspired my card.
