Great work 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 November inspiration from our remaining creative team members.  Hopefully this will inspire you to create, create, create.  We'd love to see your work.
I really enjoyed putting this page together and I'm thrilled with how it has come out.
I was particularly taken with the use of printed media on the background of the artwork and the use of texture and paint across the canvas.

The November inspiration is  such a great piece of art and gives so many possibilities. I used tissue paper and  Ranger glue on the background with  a mix of gesso , glaze, Glimmer mist, and TH  metallic dabbers on top, after cutting out from the background paper creating the raised folded paper petals. The photo was the last to be added, gluing it from the underneath.
We'd love to see your interpretations of our inspiration this month.
 Remember we happily accept all forms of paper crafting for your entry including digital and encourage 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 and/or colour challenge if you wish.  You have until 11.55pm on the last day of the month to submit your entry.
Next week we will be introducing you to our second guest designer of the month, Margaret Crawford.
