challenge # 29 BLACK & WHITE

This week's challenge is BLACK & WHITE as usual you choose the format so you could make a card, do a scrapbooking layout Altered Art, anything its up to you ...then post a photo of your creation on your blog/website or online gallery ... mention Arty Girlz with a link to our site and then come here and leave a comment with a link to your site - easy as that :)

This week FIONA STAMPIN UP has supplied this fabby prize:- A pack of designer series fall flowers 12x12 double side papers.

Here's a picture of the gorgeous papers you could win, as usual we will use the random number generator to pick a winner so GOOD LUCK EVERYONE



We also have the very talented Rosie Rowe as Guest Designer this week. Here is Rosie's wonderful creation followed by a short bio from the lady herself :)




I'm Rosie, married with a 13 yo DD, living in a madhouse in rural Devon. We have 2 dogs, a cat and DH's parrot. I'm a WAHM and also help run my DH's charitable organisation for disabled anglers. I've always been 'arty' and since I was a child, I've drawn, painted, sewn, knitted, crocheted, and tried oils and watercolours very briefly. I've lived abroad for quite a lot of my life and only seriously started crafting again in early 2006 when I joined Aunty's Forum.I love papercrafting and went from making cards, to scrapbooking and making mini-books, to altered art and now dabble in collage and mixed media too! I use a lot of recyclable material in my artwork and volunteer at our local Family Workshop and Resource Centre (aka Scrapstore) on Monday mornings. They let me play with fabric, plastic, paints, clay, whatever needs sorting, I spend a couple of happy hours there.

I was really excited when Julie & Crissi said I could be GD on Artygirlz, as I've been a wholehearted supporter of theirs since they started their challenge blog - plus the fact that we're all on the Design Team together on Auntys Forum! My style is ever-evolving and very eclectic. I'm always excited about learning new techniques or using new materials, as you'll know if you read my blog. The only things I can't do are cute and traditional - off-the-wall or funky, loud and textured is more my thing!

I made this Memo Board for my MIL, from an old wipe-clean noticeboard that I got with a cross-stitch magazine, so I'd had it a while!! Pretty and practical, it sits beside her phone and she says it's very handy!"



Here's Julie's

Jules {Creative Makes} said...

I love working with black and white, but always feel it needs a little "something" to give it a zing. So difficult to just stick with the b & w theme for this challenge. I almost did it, but had to add a bit of flesh pink for face and hands of George :o)

My attempt can be seen HERE
