Guest Designer Honour

Whoop, whoop!  I have been asked to be the April Guest designer for The Craft Room Challenge Blog.  Thank you to Zoe and the team for having me!

The challenge this fortnight is called “So Sentimental” and is sponsored by Tando Creative who produce canvases and chipboard items.  I don’t have any of their products (not sure we get them here in NZ) so I chose similar items from my stash to complete my project.

The task for this challenge is to show the use of  texts/ scripts/ messages clearly, but otherwise the creation can be anything self-made and new!

100_1248 copy

I covered an A4 sized canvas using text-printed tissue and painted up some chipboard elements from my stash.  I have been saving the “web address” sentiment for a very long time, to use on something special.  Perfect for this challenge and what could be more special than my very first guest designer spot?

Simple but effective, right?

Please do join in the fun at The Craft Room and join up with us on Facebook too.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Cheers, Esther x0x0
