Anything Goes for September

Hello All! and Welcome to another Try it on Tuesday challenge. But first we have 2 new Guest Designers to introduce to you. They will be joining us for the month of September. We hope you enjoy visiting with them. 

First up we have Michelle

"I've always fiddled with glue and paper much to the annoyance of my poor mother. Using all her toilet roll inserts for penholders, telescopes and Christmas crackers! Luckily I grew up and used my own instead. I guess once you have a penchant for crafting you never stop doing it, you just move onto another creative outlet. I've had a dabble at most things and the only things left to try are the most expensive ones like pottery and glass blowing, I'm saving those for when I retire in 25 years! Maybe then I might be able to afford to do them. Failing that it’s a lottery win I'm counting on. My current obsession is art journaling, gesso and canvases. I love the way you can chuck anything under gesso on a canvas and it looks great, recycling has never been so prolific in my house until now, if it’s not tied down its being incorporated into my next mixed media work of art! I also like to make the odd digi stamp, I'm usually forced into it when I can't find a stamp I want, so I just say 'ok I'll draw it then'.  I spend a lot of time blog hopping and being inspired by so much wonderful talent out there.  I love our crafty community only we can understand our obsession. " - Michelle

And next we have Birgit

"My name is Birgit Johansson and I live in Sweden with my family. I am mega 
excited to be GDT and joining Try It On Tuesdays blog team for September! What an honor to be chosen, and I am so looking forward to being part of the team for this month. I have been crafting all my life but my addiction to stamping and blogging accelerated in 2010. I am very lucky to be on the design team for Inkido and love all types of Papercrafting. I often try new techniques, but I suppose it's just what I am inspired to do at that moment who decides what it will be. I suppose you can say my mostly style is vintage/romantic. I am so thrilled to be joining the talented ladies of the Try It On Tuesday Design Team and can't wait to share my cards with you!" 

Now before we get to the theme let me introduce you to our wonderful new sponsor this month

 Smudgetastic Digis

They will be giving one lucky winner this month 3 free digi's! Remember to be in the running you must follow our rules posted at the top of the page. 

We will randomly pick a winner from the top 5 of both September challenges. 

And now for this fortnights Challenge....."The theme is "Anything goes" We want to see all your projects any theme any style. Just link it up below. 

Here is some inspiration from the Design team.......



Aren't they just fab! Please visit their blogs to find out more about the projects. Then go ahead and show us what you make! We cannot wait to see them. Remember to check back next week for our top 5 from the Travel challenge and our August monthly winner. 

The TIOT team!

Sketch challenge top 5 and apology.

Hello all!  Angela Here and before we begin with our top 5, I must apologize. I have been away on holiday and I thought the August "Travel Challenge post" had gone correctly but I forgot to put the title on the post as well as the pictures being a little flakey so a great big sorry from me. I fond it a bit harder than expected to work from portable devices. I am going to try an fix it with the hope it will not affect the posting.  Ok so no on to our top 5.

Once again even though we did not have too many entries you still made our top 5 choice very hard for our August Sketch challenge. We love all the wonderful entries you link up for us. Unfortunately once again we must narrow it down and here they are in reverse numerical order for a change:

Well done ladies! now please grab a blinkie and display it proudly. 

Now we have some great new changes coming to you next week  beginning with our first September challenge. There will be new quest designers, sponsors and some updates to the blog coming your way so be sure to tune in next week. 

Don't forget there is still another week to get your entries in for our "travel" challenge. 
You can find out more here!   

We hope you have a lovely week! See you soon. the TIOT team!
