Hello everybody! Here are our May Winners. There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme. Are you sitting comfortably? Then let's begin!
Well... my choice of theme was not popular with everyone but, the ones who took the challenge were particularly inspired and some of you even entered multiple times. You have enjoyed finding old stash and retrieved photos to create wonderful art. To me you are all winners and it was hard choosing just 3! But here goes... my Top 3 in no particular order:
Entry 26 - Joan:
I loved this combination of stamps which perfectly illustrate our theme.
Entry 24 Linby :
Do visit Linby's post to see more of this lovely keepsake documenting her trip to Paris, lots of stamping, photos and ephemera give it a real life feel. Linby also had another great entry (no 16) with a Paris fashion theme.
Entry 21 Matilde
A lovely journal page with 2 ladies of Paris who both have inimitable style, the iron lady (no not that one!) and Coco Chanel. Matilde demonstrates that with a bit of imagination you don't need a lot of supplies to capture the essence of Paris!
Finally my Special Mention goes to Vee who created a page on the theme of Love, which remind us that Paris is one of the most romantic city in the world! Vee's detailed and cute die-cut is complemented by Tim Holtz supplies, but no grunge in sight!
Thanks to all of you for playing with us, I enjoyed seeing all your makes and reading your posts!

Hello it's Jane here today with my 2nd post to hopefully inspire you to join our July challenge which is to add a stencil (or 2). Susan has had a recent restock of gorgeous Visible Image stencils (and stamps) so I decided to use one of my all time favourites; Fibres.
I made some new pages in my art journal and I have a step by step of the process over on my blog here; Just
swim pop on over and take a peep. Have a fab July and summer.
Bye for now,

Hi everyone, it's Jo here.
Today I'm sharing an art journal page for this month's Use a Stencil (or two) challenge, which I created using the same stencil a few different ways.
Firstly, I applied some crackle paste through the stencil, then some
Distress Ink and finally I used the stencil like a stamp by covering it
with ink and pressing it onto my page.
To see how it all came together and a full list of products, please pop over to my blog Let's Art Journal.
Thanks so much for joining me today! Hugs, Jo x
