Challenged by Joanne Wardle and winners

Last week we had some wonderful projects from Alison Bomber. We had bothersome baubles, which turned out wonderfully and the wooden icon that was given a luxurious molten metal treatment. Then the amazing upcycled jars, given new life as glorious,golden candle holders. So many elements to take inspiration from. 

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

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

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

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

Over on Joanne's blog we find more of her clean and simple style. 

I am in love with this tiny bird card. See how effective a little touch of paint can be. 

Joanne has also been making more chutney, have you ever heard of Persimmons? I definately haven't but Joanne found some and made this amazing looking chutney. I hope she lets us know what it tastes like. 

Joanne's first project will be up soon, so get ready for some very cool gift packaging, lots of fun ideas and perfect for last minute gifts. 

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 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 15th December  by noon (GMT) you need to have your link entered below, and you will go into one of 2 draws to win new stuff.

Draw 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.
