November challenge!

Hi Show Us Your Stuff fans! Can you believe that we are up to our second last challenge for the year? Where did the year go? We are now speeding towards Christmas and our summer holidays here in Australia.

This month's challenge has been designed by our very own DT member Sandra Brimelow, and she has a fabulous challenge for you all...

That's right - it's time to travel! For travel themed words think travel, journey, fly, ride, drive, road, suitcase, ticket, map, etc. (Just make sure your travel themed word is prominent on your creation.) Your travel photo could be a holiday snap, photos of someone "travelling", even car selfies!) If you don't have any patterned paper with a map printed on it, think old street directory / atlas, or print / draw your own! There is plenty of room to be creative for this challenge. Just don't forget to include a handmade embellishment somewhere on there too!

This month, we are very pleased to announce a brand new and very special sponsor...

For those who don't already know, our DT member Leanne is not only a super scrapper, but also a very talented artist and photographer to boot! Leanne has recently branched out into creating unique artworks for sale using a variety of mediums including watercolour, ink, acrylic, spray paint and mixed media; and has even begun selling her pieces internationally.

Here are some samples of her work...

You can see more of Leanne's stunning creations via her Facebook page - Art by Leanne Jago and you can also follow her adventures on Instagram - @itswhatido77

Leanne is offering this month's lucky winner their very own customised 8x10" artwork! (The content of which will be determined following discussion between Leanne and the winner - just no people, peeps!) How's that for an amazing prize?

Talk about a tough act to follow - now onto some inspiration from our Design Team...
