So another week and another challenge.

So this week The title of the challenge is Art from your heart we have decided that we want you to create something from your heart, so you can use techniques you love, create something either  about or for  someone you love, You can use poems or music that you love as inspiration. In fact you can use anything you love as inspiration.

 Don’t forget this is a completly open challenge, So if we inspire you to go and spray paint your car, then you can enter that . You can enter anything that is hand crafted wether that be an Atc, scrapbook page, card, Necklace, painting, vase  or a quilt. As long as its inspired by our challenge theme then you are eligable to enter it.

 Our sponsor this week is 3 d jean a great supplier of scrapbooking and altered art supplies . We have a great prize which includes some really great Navel Jelly photo corners. I loved using them a great stamp and some

and some really ace gems as you can see. Another terrific prize thanks Jean . A few words from Jean

I have been crafting for a long time and originaly started with making cards .Then a few years later got into scrapbooking just as it arrived in England. Having done that for a while I became interested in Altered Art
and Mixed Media and this now is what I enjoy doing most .The shop came about due to the lack of Altered Art stuff available in England. So I saw the chance to share my love of scrapbooking and altered art with others.

I only stock products that I use on my projects , and therefor products that I know are great .My big love is still stamps but more used on projects these days than in card making. We’ve just taken on two new stamp companies Mat Rat Rubber and Character Construction which I think are both producing some really interesting stamps.
Come on over and have a look……….


So here are our examples for this week

We would like to thank Charli, who is our guest designer this week.  I am sure that like me you will be amazed that she is only 16, and a great artist and crafter

a few words from Charli

I’m sixteen, studying Art, Product Design, Maths and English Literature at A level.  I live in a beautiful area of North Wales with my mum, two brothers and three crazy cats!  I enjoy listening to music and going on long country walks.
For as long as I can remember I have loved art.  I’ll try anything – ecaustic art, sculptures, anything –  but my favourite techniques are painting with acrylics and drawing.  I started crafting about 3 years ago, and enjoy making cards and ATC’s and also scrapbooking.  I also like taking photographs of the landscapes where I live and painting from them.
You can see more of Charli’s brilliant work at and   Charli also has a sketch bog if your short of inspiration

So thats it from us this week make sure you drop in to our personal blogs on Sunday to see a preview of next weeks sponsor.  We also have a great prize announcement next week . Don’t miss it
