We are so excited here as today we start the new year with our new design team line-up, our first challenge of the year and a brand new sponsor too!
To kick off the year, we thought we would ease you in gently with a simple mood board challenge. This one has been designed by me (Sue) and is designed to reflect the current summer season here in Australia.
You are welcome to use the board to inspire you however you wish, just don't forget to tell us what inspired your creation, and of course, make sure you include at least one handmade embellishment. You are also welcome to enter items other than traditional 12x12" layouts - cards, Project Life spreads, art journal pages, off the page creations - as long as they meet the challenge criteria and are created solely for our challenge.
This month we are excited to welcome Cocoa Vanilla Studio as our sponsor
Cocoa Vanilla Studio is the brainchild of Australian designer Zoe Pearn. She has a long history of design in both the scrapbook and fabric industries, having worked as a product designer for major companies in both Australia and the USA.Cocoa Vanilla Studio Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/CocoaVanillaStudio
