January Challenge

A very simple challenge for you this month - January's birthstone is the garnet and all you are challenged to do is make a project that is at least 50% RED (or shades thereof).

I must apologise for not being organised and haven't managed a project this month.

Your prize this month is a selection of flowers.

The inlinkz button will be at the bottom of the post in the next couple of days for you to add your entry. Entry is open until midnight on 31st January 2013 and I will choose a winner at random shortly after that date.

hello everyone ... nothing says red for me more than Christmas ... !!


I chose this fab image from Some Odd Girl she is called spunky sprite Red is not a colour I often use so I really enjoyed this challenge the bloom and pearls were from my stash and some simple embossing with apaisley embossing folder to finish.

I have been playing with Zentangle after getting several books for Christmas on the technique and I must say it has me hooked already. I started by using a black pen as Zentangle is traditionally black on white but I soon discovered colour has been used by many artists with amazing results. So for this months challenge I decided to use red on white and made my first Zentangle card which is shown below.

 Nothing says red more to me than Santa's red suit!! There are always more Christmas pics for me to scrapbook, this one is from our Christmas Eve 2011, think I'm ready to start on 2012 now!!

To me red screams Valentine's day.
