August Winner, Top Three & DTMSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the August winners of our Challenge, Top Three and Design Team Member Special Mention.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!


First of all, the winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...
Congratulations, Elly!  Your winner's badge and voucher will be on their way to you shortly, and we hope you'll join us a Guest Designer here at Country View Challenges in the future.
Now it's time for Jane to share her top picks with you.  As always you made it very difficult to choose from so many amazing entries, but here they are in no particular order.
Wow I really had my work cut out when choosing the Top 3 and DTSM for the Hot Summer days challenge I hosted in August. I visited every single entry and where it was possible I left a comment. It is the first time I have ever hosted a challenge and it was wonderful to see everyone's interpretation of my theme. I got down to a top 8 and sadly I had to cut it in 2 which was so difficult. Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter such wonderful work, there is so much talent out there.

So without further delay here my Top 3 entries;

#9 Sew Paper paint;

This beautiful bee card made by Autumn has so much texture. It was like looking at a real piece of honeycomb and the wonderful bee was just buzzing with details.

#11 by Lou Simms

This beautifully stamped set of postcards really appealed to me...perfect for a hot summer day. Lou's clever water colouring really set off the wonderful seaside stamps she used.

#16 Pushing the right buttons.

I have a "thing" about seahorses so when I saw Jenny's stunning canvas my heart melted. Her composition for this piece is wonderful  and the background is just like a sunny beach.

My choice for this award goes to #27 by Sandma.

I love everything about this card. It is beautifully designed, perfectly stamped with a lovely sentiment too. The background also has such a pretty shell stamped border. It was the perfect scene to illustrate a hot summer's day, made specially for our August challenge and most worthy of this award.

Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.

Travel #2 for the current challenge

Hi it's Brenda here following up my first project for the new travel challenge by completing a couple of pages in my travel journal that I first showed on my blog here and on the Country View Project blog here.

The arty page uses a photo I took and altered in Photoshop Elements and some Tim Holtz dies and DecoArt media paints. If you would like to see the mixed media style background process steps and more photos please join me on Bumblebees and Butterflies, I would love to see you.

I hope your week is going well.
