Hi! Susie here again. For this challenge piece, my second one for the WeLove2Create challenge blog, I decided to go for texture and more texture! I've used the Polkadoodles Garden Feast  collection, just two stencils and one die!
The full tutorial is on my blog, with some step by step pictures. I hope you'll have a go!

Rachel...I was inspired by a piece of packaging for my post this month, when I saw it, I just knew it had to be a hedgehog house for Earlie. I sprayed the corrugated piece of packaging with some water to allow me to peel back the top layer of card and expose the corrugation which I then inked and dry brushed. I also used the stencils; heavenly circlescloud landscape and grass lawn border. I used the flower collage stamp in the back ground and I also used the butterfly element. with additions of some reindeer moss and pretty paper flowers I thought that Earlie had a home.

Irre:  Hello everyone. I'm back here with a new art journal page. This time I thought about making a page with a lot of things going on. But in the end, I wanted a simple page. You can never go wrong by doing that sometimes. For this page, I used two stamps and a stencil, and of course a lot of ink. But I did try something I've never done before, and that is stamping with gesso. You just gotta try it!

Jane – Hello everyone! Today I have a mixed media card to share with you. Rather a masculine card this time and most definitely on the grungy side. If you would like to see how it came together, I have a picture tutorial on my blog.

Sentiment: TIME TO BLOOM

Lou: I decided to use up some of the cardboard/chipboard I have been hoarding from the back of hard backed envelopes, for this months project. Using the card, I decided to create a picture frame, with mosaic card tile effect around the outside. 

Over on my blog, I have a step by step with lots of photos & on my YouTube channel a video showing how I created my frame
