Step Out of your Comfort Zone!

This week at Tuesday Taggers it's my (Sally's) turn to chose the theme. I don't know what I was thinking, but I came up with 'Step out of your Comfort Zone!' I wanted to push myself into doing something different to my usual style and try something new. Now it has been a little scary, but I've done the cover and first page of an art journal using lots of paint and no ink or stamps at all! So, all I'm asking really is for you to try something new or different to your usual style... go on give it a try! You could try a colour scheme, a technique, a different fold or even a different craft altogether! Hope our fabulous DT inspire you with their creations!

To start then we'll show you the design sent to us by our guest designer Charli who was "soooo worried that it was going to go wrong"

It definately didn't Charli!

Now our regular design team

I never used canvas


How pretty Lyn LOL!

I've limited my supplies and used a card shape I don't normally like to use

First attempt at creating reflection with brayer a la Barbara Gray

I don't usually "do" cute and flowery, or make many cards as such so this easel card is way outside my comfort zone.

Soooooo Pink!

I have used fabric which I wouldn't usually use.

Now, without further ado we are proud to announce the winner of last week's recycling Challenge

Number 16

  4. Noughty blog thief

  5. this was such a fun challenge I had never used a magazine page for my card embellishment and this was a blast to do! Thanks for stretching me!

  6. Ooooooooooooh this is an interesting one. Not sure whether to try the brayer (have now watched all 4 videos by Barbara but brayer is still clean) or do some scrapbooking. Hmmmmmmm we'll see but will hopefully join in.
    Love the DT work.

  7. Thanks for sorting out the blog thief, Michelle!

  8. Out of my comfort zone - glamour not something that I would consider in a million years if it had not been "forced on me". Hence my little sparkly red effort. Thanks for the challenge.

  9. I'm sure no one will believe how long it's taken me to make these clean and simple cards - well outside my comfort zone! Great idea, though :) Thanks, Sally.

  10. Loved all the projects, I enjoyed this challenge and not one rubber stamp in sight for me.

  11. Great challenge! I definately stepped out on this one! No journaling AND white space. Although, I think WS is growing on me :)

  12. A wonderful challenge and a great opportunity to make a Shabby Fabric Flower.

  13. thanks for giving me the push to try masking really liked doing so might do it again

  14. This was truly a challenge, had to really give this one some thought, but pretty pleased with the result.

  15. Fantastic creations ladies, so loved doing this challenge, have a great weekend, take careX:)

  16. I really enjoyed this one once I got going so my formerly unused stamps might get another airing. Thanks for this!

  18. Great theme - I need something like that to get me thinking now & then! Wonderful DT samples too.

    PS. Typo in my name in Mr. Linky! It's me really!

  19. Great Theme... Thank you for having me step out side the box...

  20. love all the work on here ... I had never worked on a home project made out of wood before so this is definitely a first for me....

  21. I had no idea what to do for this weeks challenge so i haven't entered!!! make it easier next week!!!


  22. Sorry this is late but this time I had a problem with your linky it was not there. I tried every way to get at it on both our computers. Any way managed to link it now Cheers Bee

  23. Whew, I think I made it just in time! Thanks for a fun challenge!
