#seekgathercreate Challenge

Hello! ArtStacks is once again a proud sponsor of the #seekgathercreate challenge on Instagram so I thought I'd create something using this week's challenge criteria. The challenge is to seek and gather the following items then create anything you like with them:

  1. Something green
  2. An insect
  3. Something sticky
  4. Typography or letters

I came up with this:

All my ArtStacks pieces on this are from the All Dressed Up pack and the Wings & Things pack. I think these are among my favourite packs!

My 'something green' is the mushroom, the 'grass' and the flower stalk.
My 'insect' and my 'something sticky' are the same thing. The cool pink flying critter from the Wings & Things pack is printed on self-adhesive paper. It's designed in such a way that you just cut off part of the backing and the wings stand up as if the insect is flying!
My 'typography or letters' form my quote.

Here's the challenge. It runs until the end of February. You can find all the details on our Instagram page.

This was a lot of fun! I hope you can join in this week.

Happy creating!

Sunrises and Sunsets

Hello! The new challenge at Kraft + this month is to use red or orange and yellow on your kraft page. These are sunrise and sunset colours. I took my cue from the photo on the challenge board and used a sunset photo, plus orange and yellow. My photo had pinks in it too so I added plenty of pink around the photo. Pink, orange and yellow is one of my favourite colour combos.

I used almost entirely old papers and embellishments on this page. Some of them are ancient but they worked together well. The gorgeous chippie is fromDusty Attic.

Will you join us this month? You can find the challenge here.

Happy krafting!

Love Letters

Hello and welcome to February! This being the month of love, the theme at More Than Words is to create about Love Letters. There is a second option to simply create about Love though which is what I did. I looked at the broader meaning of the word.

Different songs about Love kept running through my head but I settled on this one from the 60's by Jackie DeShannon in support of our Ukrainian friends.

I hope you can join us this month. Don't forget we now have a prize each month donated by ArtStacks!

You can find the challenge here.

Happy art journaling!
