Our Creative Team winner for July is the lovely Lesley who will receive a little RAK from me.

Congratulations everyone. If all these winners could please email me at with your postal details I will see your prize gets out to you.

AND NOW -  Some more wonderful August inspiration from our remaining creative team members ...


We'd love to see what you can create using some paint or water - in fact you don't even need to use paint!  Tone-Lill has used ink and water on her page and my own layout is done digitally and as you can see you can still create wonderful effects. 
 Remember we happily accept all forms of paper crafting for your entry and encourage both digital and international submissions.  All we ask is that you create an original entry for our challenge although you are most welcome to combine with a sketch challenge if you wish.  You have until midnight last day of the month to submit your entry.
Next week we will be introducing you to the June winner of a guest designer spot, Chris Sexton.
Don't forget - Each month we will be selecting someone from amongst our entries to be a guest designer for one of our upcoming challenges - it could be you!!


  1. Congratulation to all the winners :)
