Katrina GDT This is ULA ~ Don't Listen-Life Journal!  You can find her here
These images and sentiments are perfect for journaling.  I was inspired to use this in my faith journal with the twist of holding your tongue ~ something I sometimes have an issue doing!  I tend to open my mouth when it really should stay closed! 
ULA has eight other moods you can check out over at Polkadoodles ~ here

Julia Another Journal Page from me this month. I created the background just dragging some distress inks down the page. I added some details with stencils and stamping, I used some elements from the fabulous Posy Doodle collection to be a feature, finally I highlighted some of the elements on my page using the transparent Nuvo drops .. full details on my Blog:

Gemma I loved experimenting on this canvas board, I used Nikky's wonderful stamps to decorate and create my focal images, but I mixed them with tester pots of paint from my local DIY store because I really liked the colours next to each other on the wall. Pop over to my blog for more details on how I painted this canvas.

Jane - My MDF plaque is decorated with one of the amazing Polkadoodles stencils and clear stamp sets, with texture paste, metallic paints, waxes and mica flakes! Phew!! More detail and pictures on my blog.

Terry: I have worked on a card for you for this months challenge, I played with waterpaints in the background. This time I decided to go for blue's. I worked with the sentiments stamp and all sorts of tiny background stamps from Polkadoodles amazing clearstamp sets. The butterfly is colored with waterpaints also stamped on the background. Than I stamped another set of butterflies and glued it onto the stamped butterfly. Last but not least I stamped the sentiment onto my card.

Some of the products that I have played with are:
