"I love the colours in this month's PPP inspiration photo-it inspired me to create this wavy, dreamy wall hanging in muted tones. Wouldn't this be so cute hanging in a nursery or bedroom? It's just so soft and tactile with all of the roving I used! The embellishments add just the right amount of sparkle and fun detail." ~Aideen Fallon

You could try Cling Stamps, Watercolor Confections or Pencils, Oil Pastels, Art Alchemy Paints, Color Bloom Sprays...the list goes on! You can also layer paper under the photos, as shown in the sketch.
As always, the sketch is open to your interpretation and creativity! We love to feature your work and would love to see it in the winner's post!
"I absolutely love the BAP sketch this month. At once, I knew I wanted to do some watercoloring, and so I made this canvas using the Water-soluble Oil pastels. I love using them because they are so pigmented, creamy and easy to blend." ~ Jaya Raghuvanshi

"This layout documents my astonishment and joy when I saw one of my projects on the cover of a Finnish craft magazine. I interpret the big letter in the sketch with a couple of smaller signs and carried the letter theme also in the background layers with a stencil and stamps.

Welcome to our second month of our new Cards & Tags challenge! You are welcome to use the sketch for ANY project, although they are perfect for cards and tags, (fondly referred to as CAT.) Riikka created this month's design for us (Isn't she the greatest?) which features two main elements (think stamped images, stickers, and you could even use small photos!); a spot for some gorgeous Prima Flowers, a sentiment spot, and some textured design in the background (think watercolors, paint, or even glitter!). Interpret this sketch into your projects and please share them with us using the blue inlinkz buttons below each challenge!
"I am so grateful for the CAT challenge and wonderful sketches we have with it! For me, it's great way to expand my imagination and try different card designs, give up routine, and create something new. I've used beautiful Heaven Sent papers and flowers for my card, a few pearls from Memory Hardware, and Prima Leaves and Doily." ~Emilia Sieradzan
