This month we have had a fabulous Guest Designer joining us! 
We love her creative work and are thrilled to have her with us, so here's a little insight into our fab Guest Designer:
Tina de Marche...
make sure you check out her blog HERE..... Thanks so much for all your amazing work in the past few weeks Tina, we've loved seeing your amazing inspiration!

Tina...This is my last Guest project for WeLove2Create, I have really enjoyed it.  This image was colored with colored pencils.  I sprayed the canvas with some inks and added a little bit of texture with some molding paste and stencils.  Metal, chipboard, gems, leather, twine, embossing powders, paints and inks were use in this creation.
Terry: Hey there guys, this time I made a Butterfly card for your inspiration, I have worked on the background with Distress Oxides, the butterflies from Nikky's Stampset Belle Papillon are colored with the Distress Oxides too. The sentiments in the background are from the Stampset Papillon and the little detaills in the background are from the Reagal Peacock stampset. Everything Polkadoodles, love it The tiny detailled stamps are so versatile and easy to use for your Mixed Medium Project, you should really try it out.
Julia I have used the gorgeous new Posy Doodles, Honey Daisy stamp set I stamped onto rice paper and then adhered to a plastic jar. I then used some twine to wrap around the top of the jar. I stamped out loads of the flowers and coloured them using my Ecoline pens, and fussy cut them & used them to embellish the jar. Full details on my blog.

Something new for me this month, I had never made something using these techniques before and if I am very honest I am not sure it was a success but it is always good to try something new to push your self in whatever you are doing so I thought I would share it with you all anyway.  I stamped the lovely butterflies from the Belle Papillon stamp set onto Belle Papillon paper and coloured them in before gluing it to an acrylic frame, which I then filled with layers of melted embossing powder and glitter.
