March Challenge

Welcome to March.

This month your challenge is from our design team member Helen who was lucky enough to visit Monet's garden last year.

Helen sent me a couple of photos to help inspire you.

You can use these photos or be inspired by Monet in some other way to create your project.

Your project can be anything but it must be created between 1st and 31st March 2013 and if you choose to enter with us this month we would request that you don't enter any more than 3 other challenges with the same project.

Entry is by the linkz button below and entry is until midnight on 31st March.

Here is what our wonderful design team have to share with you:

What beautiful inspiration this month ... I decided to go with a 'scenic' layout.


Such beautiful and serene photos I took my inspiration from the water in Monet's paintings and made my first ever bracelet. The beads are very water inspired and as in Monet's paintings he uses lots of shades of the same colour when working on a particular area so I have tried to emulate that here :)

We had such a fabulous time in Giverny, the gardens were simply stunning and I could just imagine Claude Monet wandering through them and contemplating where to sit and paint. I decided it would be appropriate to use paint to stamp with for this layout which is what I used for the leaves (Dylusions), the flowers are from various sources but mainly Prima. On the chicken wire stencil for the background I use chalk sprays and carried on the theme using a honeycombe stamp from Indigoblu. The paper I used as a mat and for the journaling is a left over page from a Smash album.

For my project this month I was inspired by all the green and the lilys in the water. It made me think of frogs on lily pads so I came up with a frog Prince card!
