  4. Congratulations on your new challenge blog and the beautiful work of the DT.
    I wanted to submit a layout but the linky won't accept the link to my post because the URL is more than 100 characters. Not sure what to do next??

    1. The link seams to work Wendy - I just came back from a visit to your blog.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. Thanks Marie/Mison. The link is to my blog, not the project post. Hope it doesn't cause too many problems as my new posts go up. Happy to be joining the inaugural challenge :D

  5. Look at you girls & your amazingly gobsmackingly gorgeous creations!! Might not get to play this time around....but sooner or later....gonna HAVE to join in - fab new challenge blog:):):)

  6. Congrats for the new challenge blog - the first reveal looks really promising! I would have liked to see what you mean with the word paintery, though. Not being a native English speaker, I haven't heard it other than in uses like car paintery, and am not finding it in the dictionary either. Sorry if I'm being nitpicky, but to join a word challenge I'd like to be sure I'm understanding what the word means!

    1. Salla, med "Paintery" menas måleri eller att något är målat. Tex en tavla har en form av måleri på sig eller är målad.

      Paintery means that something has been done with a painting technique. Lika a painting, or grafitti, or a mural on a church cealing for example.

  7. I'm very excited about your new challenge blog! I loved mixed media and I look forward to getting inspired by your challenges and your talented DT each and every month! This first challenge reveal rocks!!!
