October Challenge!

Hi everyone!
Welcome to our OCTOBER challenge! (I really can't believe that we are nearing the end of the year so quickly!) This month we have a fabulous mood board challenge that has been designed for you by the very talented Leanne Jago. But this is no ordinary mood board - this one is filled with images of artworks that have been created by Leanne herself!

Here it is...

Besides being inspired by the board for your project, you must also remember to include a handmade embellishment somewhere on your creation. (And no, it doesn't have to be made by you - check out what our team has used for some ideas!) Remember that we welcome all sorts of projects for our challenge - scrapbook layouts, project life pages, cards, mixed media canvases, art journal long as it meets our criteria and has been created specifically for our challenge, you are welcome to enter it. (Please note that entering your project into multiple challenges will void your eligibility for prizes with us.)

Our sponsor this month is none other than our challenge designer and artist extraordinaire herself - Leanne Jago from Art by Leanne Jago!

Leanne has created something very special for this month's winner...

This amazing pair of mixed media artworks come matted and ready to pop straight into some 8x10" frames. Aren't they stunning? I am sure they would look fabulous in someone's home (MINE!)
Make sure you are following Leanne's Facebook page Art by Leanne Jago to stay up to date with all her creations.
