PP611 - A Theme Challenge from Joanne

Hi Crafty Friends! 

Joanne here and I’m super-excited to host our Theme Challenge this week. Before we get to that, on behalf of all of us here at The Paper Players, we would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who participated in Jaydee's Sketch Challenge last week - such a great variety of designs. 

Now…to my theme this week! It's the first week in October and as the days get shorter and temperatures begin to fall, it's a sure sign that Autumn is on its way. The season of falling leaves, pumpkins, hats and scarfs and much more besides! What does Autumn mean to you? Let us know how the season inspires you - we can’t wait to see what you create! 



Let’s take a peek at what the Design Team has created for inspiration this week:

PP610 Challenge Winners

Jaydee here

What a wonderful gallery again this week!   Thanks to all of you who played along with my sketch challenge.  As always, you made it very hard for us to choose our winners!  

Before we get to our HEADLINER, let's see what caught the eye of the design team:

Now for our HEADLINER:

Elizabeth


Seriously?!!! How wonderfully creative and creepy is this card!  The spider web. all over that newsprint background which, when you look at it closely, is kind of creepy!  And that jar of eyes - all different shapes and colors!  It is so Stephen King and so creative!  What really caught my eye - sorry - I couldn't rersist!  Was the two purple eyes doing an eye roll at the top of the jar and those little beedy eyes placed intermittently between the larger eyes.   Elizabeth, thank you for gracing us with the weirdest - yet most fabulous Halloween card EVAH!  Such a fabulous take on the sketch!   Congratulations on being my HEADLINER... or is that eyeliner :-) this week.

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a fun Theme Challenge from Joanne!

And now for our Headliner!



Pheasants are a common sight in the countryside where I live and Su's marker-to-stamp technique gives her colourful pheasant a wonderfully realistic appearance. I love the way this magnificent bird takes centre stage, with nothing more than some deckle-edged layers to frame it. Congratulations Su on being my chosen Headliner this week!

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a seasonal Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Claire!
