December Just Art Challenge – join in and get FREE goodies!

My December Just Art Challenge has kicked off at the Studio.  You can read all about it HERE.

I would love for you to come and join in the fun.  It’s called Just Art because there are no rules,  You can do a traditional scrapbook page if you want, or you create your own personal piece of art.  As usual I provide you with some ‘art supplies’, but you can choose to use whatever you wish.  What are you waiting for………..come and join in the fun!!

Here’s a peek at the art supplies for December…………and it’s all for FREE.

Just Art Challenge – come and join me!

I’ve been so incredibly lazy about posting here!  Such a lot has been going on since my last post.  One thing I’m really enjoying is hosting the Just Art challenge at the Studio.  There are absolutely no rules for this challenge.  You can do a traditional page, a digital art page, an art journalling page or whatever takes your fancy.  I do have a theme each month, but you have artistic license to interpret that theme in a manner of your choosing.  I also provide a starter kit which you can choose to use or not.  You can read more about November’s Just Art Challenge HERE.  I would love to have you join me and participate in the challenge.  It’s a very popular challenge and new participants are always warmly welcomed!!

This is the kit I’ve created for this month’s challenge.
