WOW I can safely say that I am back to blogging. I have really missed it and missed visiting your lovely blogs.
Welcome everyone :-)
As of the 7th January, LEJ Designs Challenge Blog is starting a new era.... We are well known for our weekly challenges, however that is all changing.
We are going MONTHLY....Yes you read that right....Our challenges will now run from the 7th of the month to the 5th of the following month. This allows you plenty of time to get your makes in and look at all the fabulous Design Team Makes.
Please click on the above image or link to take you to our wonderful LEJ Designs Challenge Blog, with links to the shop and gallery etc.
So, this is our first monthly make, wish us luck.... As it is still early in the year and people are adjusting back to normal life after the festive period, we have chosen a nice easy theme for you......
.....That means there are no excuses not to get involved in the Challenge.
Here is What I Made
I used the LEJ Designs Image 'Skater Boy' and added the son text to it in Serif Craft Artist2.
I coloured the image in with my Derwent Water Colour Pencils as you all know I love using them. I paint with a very fine Koi Water Brush.
The paper is from my stash and the green backing card is some I got in my payper box at the NEC.
I used a rangers distressing tool to distress the edges of all backing edges and used a ruller to rip the image edges.
I finished off with twine, Card Candi and a Happy Birthday peel off.
I enjoyed making a male card, as usually I struggle with them as I want to glitter and pretty them up lol
I hope, as always, that my make has inspired you to visit the LEJ Designs Challenge Blog and join in the new monthly challenge. Remember it is Anything Goes, so the only thing stopping you entering is you.....
Thank you for your wonderful words you leave on your visits, they are all wonderful and make my day.
