Now on to the inspiration from our lovely design team

Zoe I've used 3 tiny 3x3 inch canvasses to create this mixed media wall hanging of my three fostered baby girls who have all been adopted, please visit my blog to see more!

 Claire C I've made a pendant using fabric and PanPastels. It was a bit of an experiment but I'm pleased with the way it turned out. I've used Permanent Red and Gold PanPastels with Maimeri Glassy gel, for more details pop over to my blog

Here's another pic of the flowers

Terry I made a Christmas Tag, tried to make a snowy background with lots of Gesso, modelling paste and Metallic Silver PanPastels. The clock is made with modelling paste and used some shimmer on the bottom of the tag, some lace and sentiments and crackle to finish.
