Shades of Autumn Winner and Top 3

Good morning everyone. Julia here to announce the winner and top 3 for my Shades Of Autumn challenge. Wow! We were really pleased to see so many of you playing along last month - an absolute shower of beautiful autumnal goodness! That made the task of choosing an outright winner and top 3 very difficult indeed and I spent a great deal of time going backwards and forwards between posts.

Without further ado, let's get down to announcing the winners shall we?

First of all the winner of the Creative Embellishments $25 voucher is....

Congratulations Kathy Jo! Have fun shopping! We'll be in contact with you shortly.

It is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the Shades Of Autumn challenge is: 

Donna from Inky And Quirky

I loved the stark Banksy image against the beautiful autumnal background so much. This reminds of those autumn days when your hair blows around, the leaves swirl around you and the glorious colours of autumn are everywhere. The clever use of a real leaf on a gelli plate print for the background sealed the deal for me! Thank you Donna for sharing your art with us.

My top three stars in no particular order are:


I loved the swirling leaves on this beautiful journal spread from Evelyn. When you look at the enlarged images, you see just how much texture and layering has taken place to achieve this gorgeous spread.

A gorgeous reverse canvas from Nikki which has that beautifully textured frame along with the bird in all his autumnal glory. Stunning!

I really love the rich autumnal shades on the embossed panel and the word band. If you click on the image you see the beautiful leaf background on the base card too. Wonderfully rich, warm colours.

Ladies, your badges will be with in a short while - we hope you display them with pride on your blog.

Aren't these just beautiful projects? Thank you to all our winners and to everyone who made my challenge such a special event. 

Don't forget that Laura's challenge is live until October 28th 11.55pm. The theme is Halloween Horror and you can find all the details here.
