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

  7. Hi...I have had a lovely polite comment from Cindy on my entry saying my entry cannot be considered for the top 5 as I had entered too many challenges - I know I probably would not even be considered for the top 5 out of all the beautiful numerous entries but would mention that I have checked and I have only entered 4 in total challenges and your rules state 5 inclusive. I just did not want you to think I had ignored your rules...I had read them before uploading my entry. I would say thanks again to Cindy for her tactful comment though. Regards, Suzanne B entry 95


Huge thanks for taking the time to visit us and leave a comment The Try it on Tuesdays team really appreciate it x
