Challenged by Jo Myhill and Winners

Last week we had some wonderful projects from Liz Borer. An exceptional delve into colour theory, I know we will all find that useful for future projects. The use of clingfilm to create that delicate marbled effect was inspired as was the tutorial on painting with Grunge Paste. 

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects alongside Liz. 

1. And the winners are...

Random winner #1 from the First Challenge draw (every single entry linked, including multiple 

entries) is: Craftyfield

 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: Kate.

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

*Winners please get in touch with Darcy ( with your full 

name, address and choice of stamp plate. 

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

Over on Jo's blog there are some gorgeous projects. 

Even our blog designers are inspired by each other, Jo was inspired by one of our other designers, Joanne Wardle, but it has a definite Jo Myhill spin to it. 

Jo says it took her a year to get around to decorating this Noel sign, it was definitely worth the wait as she achieved this awesome shabby-chic effect that would fit in with any Christmas scheme. 

In the description for this piece Jo claims to be obsessed by hearts, that's OK I am too, and I adore this one. Just look at those yummy textures. Her ability to distress a piece and make it look entirely natural is amazing, like it could have been found while beach-combing. 

Jo's first project will be up soon, so settle in. I am sure we will see some very inspirational projects in the week ahead. 

3. Challenged by....{Jo Myhill}

I do hope that you will find time to join in with Jo'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 1st December 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 Darcy 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.
