2. The week ahead...
Coming up in the week ahead we welcome new team member Joanne Wardle

Joanne has been  a long-standing relationship with PaperArtsy as a member of the PA design team (in its former incarnation). I, (Leandra) have always enjoyed her uncluttered, stripped back style. It's a breath of fresh air when someone takes our stamps and uses them in a manner in which the  vintage genre is generally not associated with. I absolutely adore the impact of someone doing that! Joanne's style is refreshing, and anyone can easily do the same thing. Fantastic for quick cards. So people, you can look forward to a week of 'clean and simple' - Joanne is certainly the master!

Here is her own words...

"Hi, I'm Joanne Wardle, and I've been working with PaperArsty for many years. In fact some of the very first stamps I bought were from PaperArsty. My style is definitely clean and simple. I enjoy making minimalist cards expecially one layer cards. 

So, you may understand how I feel when I say that I'm nervous following the amazing designers that have already been featured on the blog. However, Leandra has reassured me that I should just do what I do.

I have recently taken a bit of a step back from blogging and working with design teams, but when I was invited to take part in PaperArsty guest designer project, I thought it sounded just the thing for me and I'm really excited about it.

I'm thrilled that I got to do Semester 3 as I get the autumn/winter season, so get to play with my favourite autumnal colours and also get Hallowe'en and Christmas".

3. Challenged by....{Joanne Wardle}
I do hope that you will find time to join in with Joanne's techniques this week. You can link to your own blog, Pinterest or Flickr pages, or any webpage that shows us what you have creatively made in response to her posts this week. 

On Sunday by noon you need to have your link entered, and you will go into one of 2 draws to win new stuff. 

The first draw is for every single entry, so if you have multiple entries, you get entered multiple times.

The second draw is only one entry per name, and the winner of Draw 1 is not included in this second draw.

Winners are announced here, this time next week. Have a great week everyone!
