Flower Power !

Hi everyone. Julia here with a new challenge from Artist Trading Post Exchange. I do hope you are all keeping safe and warm if your weather is really wintery! I get fed up with grey days, rain, poor light and the cold so it seemed like a good idea to cheer ourselves up. 
Here's my challenge to you:
'January is often a very grey and dark month. With this in mind, I'd like to brighten things up a little and bring some summer fun into the winter. Using a Mixed Media style, I'd like you to make some handmade flowers and use them on a project of your choice.

Remember we are a Mixed Media challenge and stamping must be included, but no digi images please. A maximum of 10 challenges can be entered including ATP Exchange.
The team have come up with some wonderful inspiration for you so why not scroll down the page then click on their names to visit their blogs and find out all the details.
Artist Trading Post generously provide a £10 voucher for our winner each time. There's always the chance to be in the top three too and have a blinky for your blog!

I'm sure you'll agree that the team have come up with some wonderful inspiration for you today. We just know that you're going to amaze us with your creativity too so what are you waiting for? Let's get started!
One small reminder: do pop back on Saturday 24th January to see who is the winner and the runners up (in no particular order!) chosen from Sue's fab challenge 'Fresh Beginnings. . . ' at the start of the month.
