Georgie here, and wow.... seriously you guys... this has been one on the hardest things I've had to do, and I know a lot of teams say this when picking a winner etc, but seriously, it is! The work you've created is just out of this world and I want to say a huge thank you to all have played along in the challenge theme (and a big thank you to my teamies for their superb creations too). I never intended to set an 'easy' challenge and I'm scatterbrained by so many creatively amazing entries. :) Thank you!!
After a lot of going back and forth, here is my winner:
WINNER - 17. Sanderijn de Bruin
This page completely stole my heart! I created the mood board because of my love of these colours and the theme because of what it can represent! Sanderijn's use of texture, layers and colour has completely blown my mind and the play of light with the colour in the background and the sparkles is beyond magical!!! If you can, go and check out her close ups for this scrap-page - I promise you won't be disappointed!!
Congratulations Sanderijn!! Pamellia will be contacting you via email to send you your personalized winner's badge and details about being our Feature Artist for the next challenge.
And now for my Runner-Up
This trio of ATCs have captured a look of old magic, and the set just look completely breathtaking together. I love how Heather used embossing folders for the background and then added acrylics to get the colour. The little vintage images add that air of old mystery to them, and I also get a Lord Of The Rings vibe from them too. I understand completely why Heather doesn't want to let these go, shame though as I so need them in my life! :) Please go check out the other two ATCs, it's a complete magical pick me up!
Now on to our DT Favourites
Branka's Favourite - #17 Sanderijn de Bruin
I love this magically beautiful scrapbooking layout with all those shimmery elements against the black background! So many fantastic details and amazing textures creating a brilliant composition! A stunning way to showcase that awesome photo!
Cec's Favourite - # 24 - Irina R.
I chose this assemblage project because the glass lake as she calls it reminds me of a magic crystal and just draws one right into this piece of art. I love all the bits and pieces she added to the inside and outside of the frame and the shimmery colours makes it all pop.
When I first saw this canvas I was enthralled with the dark beauty of it and the imagery pulled me in. I really enjoyed reading about the message behind this design and the purple ribbon is something that most people know. The texture in this design and the sentiment tugged at my heart because this subject matter hits close to home. Thank you to Lisa for bringing awareness to such a wonderful cause.
Pamellia's Favourite - #37 Mac Mable
I was completely captivated by Mac's project!! The colours are so rich, the whirlwind of golds and greens seem like they come straight from an enchanted forest and the textures just whisked me away to a magical land!! Mac really captured so many of the wonderful elements from Georgie's mood board, I just love it!
Samra's Favourite - Lisa #35
The Fairy's wand is what stole my heart! I pay attention to little details and you definitely need a wand if you are going to make some magic :) Of course all the texture and gorgeous composition follow along.
Sara Emily's Favourite - Lisa #35
Lisa really caught my attention with her magical forest, complete with a sprite and her magic wand! I fell in love with the hanging vines, the Skittles and oh MY, the magical sparkle and shimmer! And she was able to capture all the magic with her camera! Well done!
A huge congratulation everyone! Thank you so much to everyone who played along with us last month and don't forget to grab your badges! You earned them!!
There is still plenty of time to enter Niki's current challenge MIXED MEDIA MAKEOVER! We can't wait to see what you come up with this time!
Hugs to all, from the 'Anything But Cute' Design Team
