Challenged by Liz Borer and Winners

Last week we had some great projects from Joanne Wardle. In her wonderfully CAS style Joanne showed us 3 different gift wrap/bag ideas, I am sure many of you will be whipping up some of those bag-a-lopes. I know that I am definitely making some of the gift card holders. 

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects alongside Joanne 

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

 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: Etsuko

 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 Liz Borer.

Let's look back at what she made last month, first up this stunning mdf plaque. The sea swirls are just beautiful and I know many of you were inspired to add them to your own work. 

Then, my personal favourite, this set of three panels. The painting directly with Grunge Paste was genius, a superb way of creating dimension. Not an easy technique to master but I was thrilled to see so many of you trying it out. 

Liz's first project will be up soon, this week Liz is showing us how to do PaperArtsy 'pretty', but when you see what she has made I think you will agree they are more than pretty, they are simply beautiful. 

3. Challenged by....{Liz Borer}

I do hope that you will find time to join in with Liz'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 22nd 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.
