MMW#10: Inspirational Image + new DT + surprise!!

Hello there! 

Hope you're all well? This year is nearly over and I don't know about you, but it has been so full on so I can't wait to have a couple of weeks off and enjoy the festive season to the full. I will be spending time over Christmas to spruce up this website a bit. If you come back in 2016 and it looks no different it is most likely because I enjoyed the festivities way too much... heheeee!! 

I have a lot to talk about today so make a cuppa or whatever you fancy and make yourself comfy. Today is the start of our new challenge this time chosen by our lovely Debs. There is Christmas all around and we thought we'd do something totally different, because we like to invite ALL crafty friends around the world to our challenges, even the ones that don't celebrate Christmas. We made it quite simple for you too... a beautiful natural palette of colours and an image. 

These are the colours for my December Inspiration. Curtesy of Design Seeds.

You can create anything you like, follow any theme (even Christmas), as long as it is a mixed media project, you need to follow the colour scheme and copy our inspirational image into your blog post so that everyone can see what colour scheme you were supposed to follow. Sounds like fun? 

The sponsor of our next challenge is The Old Design Shop... 


... you have a chance to win 3 gorgeous images from Julie's Etsy shop! These are no ordinary images! These are full of character vintage images that you can use for any art, including image transfers, layouts, cards, tags... whatever you an think of! 

HERE comes to SURPRISE>>>

Because it is Christmas and I'm feeling all festive I will personally pick my three favourites from all entries once the challenge is over at the beginning of January. Each of these three lucky winners will get £10 voucher to my chosen online craft shop!! This is sponsored by me (Ingrid). You can use your voucher in those fabulous January sales!!! Yay! The only thing I ask for in return is that you help me spread the word about our blog so that more people can come and have some fun. You can grab our badge and pop it on the side bar of your blog for a month or however long and/or you could share our post via your social media... thank you very much! xxx


I have another excited news for you today!!! That's right, you're going to be so spoilt by the time you get to the end of this post! 

I would like to introduce and welcome our lovely new extremely talented Design Team member, Lena

This lady was actually one of our winners and I was so impressed with her style and her knack for mixed media art that I simply had to ask her to join us so that you could be inspired by her art even more. I hope you can visit her gorgeous blog and say hi! Before I show you what our talented DT prepared for this challenge let's take a look at Lena's work... 

...and some inner pages...

Isn't this journal awesome! As promised, here are the wonderful inspirational pieces from the Design Team...

There is one more thing we need to do today and that is to announce the winner and our FAB 3!! Without any further ado, the winner of our Anything Goes challenge is....

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Please could the winner email me to ingridscraftscorner (@) hotmail . co .uk to claim her prize and to confirm if happy to guest design for us next month! Thank you!

We had so many amazing entries and it was not easy to pick at all. You have smashed it and totally deserve the recognition. Sod the tea, let's pop a champagne and give it up for all of the above and the 25 following artists... 


Our DT Call is nearly over. I will not be making any decision until after 15th December so please feel free to email for your chance to become one of the Design Team members. Thank you to all that contacted me so far. If I sad it was going to be the hardest thing to select only one or two it would be an understatement. 

Have a wonderful time being creative and enjoy the holiday season wherever you are! Big hugs to you all!
