Challenged by Alison Bomber and Winners

Last week we had some wonderful projects from Jo Myhill ,elegant repeating wallpaper patterns, versatile use of a simple colour palette, lots of layering and delicate use of Treasure gold. Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects alongside Jo. 
This weeks winners are ....

  1. And the winners are...
Random winner #1 from the First Challenge draw (every single entry linked, including multiple entries) is: Lucy

 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice. 

Random winner #2 the winner from the Second Challenge draw, (only one entry per name) is Lesley

 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice.

2. The week ahead...
Coming up in the week ahead we welcome back Guest Designer Alison Bomber. Let's see what she has been up to since we last saw her. 

Over on Alison's blog there are some stunning new projects. The colour combinations on this tag are so clean and fresh. 

Alison has also been arranging some of her work into a large glass cabinet, such a wonderful way to display her creations.  you must go over to her blog HERE... to see the rest of the cabinet. 

Finally just look at these festive tags. Beautifully classic. 

Alison's first project will be up soon, so kick back and enjoy, we are in for some super projects in the week ahead. 

3. Challenged by....{Alison Bomber}
I do hope that you will find time to join in with Alison's techniques this week. You can link to your own blog, Pinterest or Flickr pages, or any webpage that shows us what you have made in response to her posts this week. Just come back to this page, and use the linking tool to show us your entry.

On Sunday 10th November by noon you need to have your link entered below, and you will go into one of 2 draws to win new stuff. 

Challenge guidelines:
  • The first draw is for every single entry listed, so if you have multiple entries, you get entered multiple times. The second draw is only for one entry per name, and the winner of Draw 1 is not included in this second draw. Having 2 draws makes it fair for everyone, no matter how many times you can join in during the week.
  • As this challenge is to show how you have been inspired to action by this week's designer, make sure in your blog post you explain what prompted you to create.
  • Please don't feel you need to copy a designer's work, it may be one small aspect or idea that you want to explore that sends you into the creative zone. You are also welcome to use any stamps/ products / substrates you have to hand, we do not expect you to exclusively use PA products - but of course it is lovely when you do!
  • The winners are announced Sunday evenings in the 7pm blog post (as above). It is your responsibility to check back and see if you have won. If you are a winner, email Leandra with the name of the stamp you would like, and your snail address. We do not chase people for unclaimed prizes.
  • If we are away at an event, then the winners post would generally be updated by Monday evening with draw details.

Thanks everyone and thanks to Jo for the inspiration and PaperArtsy for the goodies. I now have the very difficult task of choosing which set of stamps I want the most, lol! Think I might have to put a few in a hat and get OH to pull one out ;D.
