You can enjoy their stunning work from today until the middle of November. We would love that you really stretch your creativity this month and step out of the box.

What an amazing colour palette to create with!
I look forward to seeing your creations using our October Challenge - our First Year Anniversary!

Step 1

Take a piece of black card stock, spritz with a little water, add Dylusions White mist in droplets, smudge some Gelatos in colours: Bubble Gum and Tangerine randomly over the page and blend gently with a Baby Wipe. Leave the black card stock to dry.

Step 2

Take a piece of Marshmellow Cardstock (this is 250gsm which is perfect for Mixed Media), spray some Dylusions in Bubblegum Pink and Squeezed Orange and allow to dry. Take your glue and draw randomly over the Dylusions and while still wet, sprinkle gold glitter over the top. Leave to dry, then remove excess glitter. Make sure the white card stock incompletely dry and tear into an "uneven" rectangle. With a baby wipe wet the torn edges and apply some Gelato in Bubble Gum and Tangerine randomly across the edges.

Step 3

Take the flourish frame and paint it with 2 coats of Dina Wakley heavy body paint I used Magenta (or any other heavy paint) and allow to dry.

Step 4

Cut a freehand black cardstock circle and attach your photo to the card stock with glue. Use your foam mounting tape to mount your photo to the glittery piece of cardstock. Next place foam mounting tape to the back of your glittery piece of cardstock and attach it to the centre of your black cardstock.

Step 5

Use the Gold Alphas (American Crafts) and attach with glue, and attach the frame to the photo - I only glued the round frame to the photo and left the rest of the flourish to look elevated.
