#15 Water

Welcome to our November Challenge.

Our theme for the month is Water
Splish, splash, splosh!  
Water is such an integral part of our lives, the weather, rain, snow or storms. The landscape, the ocean, rivers and waterfalls. In our homes, cooking and cleaning. So many sports involve water, leisure and pleasure!
Show us your inspiration, what will you create?
We are intrigued, will it be a scrap page, a canvas, a 3D project or a tag?
Our host is Jan, and she will be choosing our Winner and Top 5.
Instead of a physical prize this month we would like to offer our Winner a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge.
 We hope our fabulous Design Team can inspire you. Please pop by their blogs and show them your appreciation

I used a large tag and took the theme of water for life. I was inspired by a vase of wild flowers my husband brought from his Allotment!
I stamped, used texture paste, die cuts and fussy cutting!

my first creation for the DT
canvas : tissue paper, stencil and modeling paste, black acrylic paint and green patina. Letters are cut and embossed, some fishes and beads, more on my blog

This is my first project as DT and some of the products I used were canvas, modelling paste, several rubber stamps, acrylic paint, a selection of dies, digital image and both real and artificial shells. The other products used can be found on my blog.

I turned a clear plastic Christmas ornament into an aquarium. Some of the products I used were microbeads, heavy gel gloss, acrylic paint, spray inks, chipboard, real seashells, Inka Gold metallic paint and more. The way I layered the chipboard using wire gives it an awesome 3D look. 
I made a mixed media advent calendar Pocket Letter. There is a pocket for every day in December so I have three Pocket Letters put together. I used frozen water - snow - for my theme this time! You'll find more photos of this BIG Pocket Letter on my blog.


Hi everyone. This month I have been working on a canvas using Powertex and 3D Flex as soon as I completed it I realised it looked like water and waves so I have completed it by adding sea creatures.Hope you like it, more details on my blog.


I chose to do a 5X7 canvas hanging with a Beach theme. Please click on my name to go to my blog and see how I created this.

For my project I decoupaged a paper mache hat box.
I chose to create a framed mirror for my project with a mermaid theme.
To see how it was made click my name above.


  1. Wonderful inspiration from the talented team

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Now I am completely confused. At the top of this post you ask for "a scrap page, a canvas, a card...", and at the bottom of the post you state anything except cards. Just wanting to clarify! Thanks :)

    1. Hi Lyndal, Thank you so much for pointing out my error... I have removed the word 'card' from the top of the post, that obviously slid past me unnoticed! :-)


Thank you for leaving us a comment.
