It's the style

Hello everyone,  I've gone a bit Steam Punky for my last project for this months theme, of Rust. I altered this plaque which was originally white, into a fitting board to showcase this lady with attitude. As always the details are on my blog, and I love you to visit.
Take care hugs

Mixed Media Rust

Hi it's Brenda here with my second inspiration project for this month's rusty challenge.

This is very different for me and I'm still not sure about it, yet I really quite like, I'm in a quandary. This is a 5 x 7 canvas board created with metal and mdf embellishments and using DecoArt Mixed Media Fluid Acrylic paints. Even as I'm writing this post I'm wondering whether I should put something else on it like remnant rubs or a quote chip. So if you'd like to see more details and photos I would love to see you over at Bumblebees and Butterflies and maybe between us we can decide whether it needs anything else.

March Winner, Top Three & DTMSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the March winner of our Challenge, Top Three and Design Team Member Special Mention.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!

March winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...


Congratulations, Autumn!  Your winner's badge and voucher will be on their way to you shortly, and we hope you'll join us a Guest Designer here at Country View Challenges in the future. 

The Inspired by Tim Holtz theme was a crowd pleaser amongst the afficionados of all things Distressed and it was hard to choose just 3 of the best....
Christine (a.k.a Craftyfield) gave up and chose a top 4, on account that Tim Holtz would tell you to break the rules (that could be just be her excuse...) and it just wasn't possible to leave one of these brilliant makes behind...  In no particular order:

2 - Butterfly

Christine said: Hats off to Alison who had me at the Verdigris effect on the metal embellishments, and produced a tag full of interest, showing off her new Distress Oxides backgrounds.

44 - Sewpaperpaint

Christine said: Autumn made this journal page with lots of layers in a beautifully Vintage colour scheme. Don't you love these Paper Dolls from Tim's latest collection?

59 - Paperplay

Christine said: Carol created her own Paper Dolls by fussy cutting the Stampers Anonymous image (kudos, fussy cutting is my pet hate!) to create this wonderfully "Tim" tag. I love the colour contrast between the foreground and the black and white image.

63 - Julia Aston

Christine said: I can tell from Julia's blog she is a big fan of the man and even met him! She used lots of supplies for her tag including the new Distress Oxides and the iconic Umbrella man... I think Tim would be proud, don't you agree?

And finally, Christine choice for the Design Team Member's Special Mention goes to:
31 - Two Mad Dahlias

Christine said: Jess started making a tag and ended up with a piece of theatre... She put the brothers on stage, surrounded by suitably inked, distressed and generally "aged", papers and embellishments. Aptly named Beautiful Relic, methinks...

WOW Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.

And don't forget there is still lots of time to enter our April Challenge - Rust
