Firstly, I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who linked up an entry and made it so difficult to choose a Winner and Top 3! I do feel that the list of winning entries could have been much longer, but we have to draw the line somewhere!
First let's announce the randomly drawn winner of the prize donated by our wonderful sponsor last month Tando Creative:
Congratulations! I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with your prize.
Please send us an email and we will arrange for your prize to be sent to you
Let's move on now to the winner and the top three entries for my Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
The winner is:
For me, these pages just glowed with light and grungy colours, gorgeous texture, stamping and other wonderful details such as the wire framing the photo. I kept coming back to look at Branka's entry - particularly the close up images. Once you see these, you appreciate the creativity that Branka has poured into these two pages. A wonderful, mixed media interpretation of my challenge.
Thank you Branka for this stunning entry and I hope to see more of your fab work in the future.
Now to my Top Three:
(These gorgeous pieces are in no particular order)
I love Ellie's style with soft muted tones and depth of colour layers. The maidenhair stencilled modelling paste which has been coloured and stamped is stunning and I love the 'Ryn' water drop stamping. For me, this page needs no sentiment or quote, it can weave a story all of it's own in your imagination.
A stunning, textured background from Ruth which creates great depth to this piece. Ruth's flowers are simply beautiful with those wonderful centres, spritzed colour and variety of layers. The piece has a subtle sheen which isn't my normal style but I think it looks just perfect in this context. I love the frosty look to Ruth's piece too.
I loved this piece by Nikki because if I did ever become a scrapbooker, this is how I would like to do it! Can you believe this is Nikki's first scrap book page?? I love the grungy tones which you can see in the close ups on her blog; the composition which works perfectly and yes, the pink!! From die cuts to stencilling, this scrap book page has it all for me.
Huge congratulations to all these talented ladies - it makes being part of a challenge blog an absolute pleasure when you get to view entries such as these.
Thank you again to everyone who entered my challenge and I'm just sorry that I couldn't choose loads more of you to appear here. There were lots of stunning entries and I'm honoured that so many of you were inspired to join us for this challenge.
