River of Creativity, The Tin Man was said not to have a Heart

Art Angel created this fantastic journal page painting of the Tin Man for our challenge.   You can join in by clicking the link in the sidebar or this one.

This woman's imaginative art and take on our themes is like no other, it does not get much more inspiring than this.

How does our theme No Hearts or Mushy Stuff strike you, have you shared your ideas with us yet?  We would love to see them and remember we are open any and all types of craft.  Seriously any at all I'm hoping that one day we will get a thatched roof entry :-).

Brenda went Asian

If you are looking for our current challenge No Hearts or Mushy Stuff click here or use the link in the sidebar. 

We are back today with a second inspiration card for the current challenge.

Brenda explains what she did like this; "This months theme is 'No Hearts or Mushy Stuff' and this is my take using stamps from Stamp Addicts and a bit if paper folding to create the fans which I stamped with an Oriental stamp and Versafine Clair."  

We all fell in love with this card, in fact you might see Asian as a theme in a few months it inspired us so much.

You still have plenty of time to share your No Hearts of Mushy Stuff ideas with us, the challenge runs until the 31st July.

All the entries were worthy of a Shoutout and so we decided not to choose one each this time but to award all 3 with our badge of honour.

No. 1 Mandy

No. 2 Karen

No 3 Sue T

Congratulations to each and everyone of you, each entry was different in style and we love that.   We hope you will be proud to display your Shoutout Badge.

River of Creativity Challenge 3 No Hearts or Mushy Stuff

Hello and Welcome it is time for our 3rd challenge.  Last month was very quiet but that was not just here so many challenges were in the same position.   If we inspire just one or two people a month then we are happy.  If you joined us last month then please check back on the 11th to see how we worked things out with our 3 entries.

So new challenge with the theme of No Hearts or Mushy Stuff.  These themes and ideas sound great when they come to you, then you start to craft/create.  Yes we know it can be problematic as most if not all the team will testify.   

Here are some ideas to inspire you from our amazing Design Team.  (there are links to each team members social media set up on their name.)
