Our April mid month reveal ...

Welcome to our mid month reveal.

This month we feature an ANZAC tribute artwork by Kenneth MacQueen called Wild Poppies.  Our criteria this month is to use pops of red on your page.

CRITERIA - Pops of red

We'd love to see your entries - this isn't difficult, just add some splashes of red to your layouts - this can be paint or ink, or enamel dots, rhinestones or even buttons.  Add some flowers, hearts or stars in red.  It can be any theme at all it doesn't have to be related to a memorial day.

And some fantastic inspiration from our second team ...

As Sweden has not been to war for over 200 years we do not have any memorial day similar to ANZAC. I therefore just picked a photo that goes along with red. My pop of red is a rub-on "tattoo" and splashes of red mist.

The photos are taken in a small zoo....and the title says "Are you snotty?

I made an art journal page using a little pop of red and a quote which i imagine our war heroes would agree with: A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because her trust is not on the branch but on her own wings. Believe in yourself.


I made a card this time I was inspired of the red poppies and the watercolor effect. I smooshed with some red distress ink +water on my background . The sentiment is inspired of the tribute/remembering theme.



In 2015 and 2016 a local community group undertook a massive "Poppy Poject" to handmake thousands and thousands of poppies for the 100 Year anniversary of Gallipoli and WW1. These were made with crepe paper and a lot were done with crochet - a truly massive job.

Now it is your turn, we'd love to see your own interpretation. You have until 11.55pm on the last day of the month to submit your entry.
