June??  Are you sure? How did that happen??

And so again the first of the month and the new challenges go up...

The JUNE challenge for ARCHISCRAPS is a fabulous inspiration photo ..
and you can use the color palette with the option of using diamonds or mosaics..

I made a little card and I thought I would try to do some mosaics. I have used a SCRAPMATTS urn and thought I would turn it into something a bit more interesting!

From this.. painted with black gesso..

to this.. my card..

 Hand made flowers, stamped leaves and my mosiac-ed urn!!!

And the challenge has been posted on FACEBOOK FOR SKETCHY BOARDS and the sketch for inspiration is a fabulous one from Pagedrafts and it is..

and the board for inspiration..

and my layout..

some closer views..

texture, flowers made from stamps. ribbon..

 Water color on the background, plasterers tape, dies and a doiley..

So there is a couple of challenges if you feel inspired to join in!

Thanks for popping on by, and thanks for your lovely comments too!
Enjoy June!
