Now lets see the team's fantastic interpretation...
their gorgeous projects are sure to inspire you!

Alysha ~  I gathered all my materials to create my mixed media Decorate your Soul With Flowers canvas, using the Short and Fringe Hair with the Head and Torso Template. I've decorated the background with flowers, and finished with a sentiment. Hope you like my project, pop by my blog to see the step by steps and give it a go, hugs Aly xx

Lozzy has used one of the templates from the Mixed Media Female Profile Template set along with the Profile Face Stamp Set. For the background used one of the flowers from the Folk Fabrique Stamp Set, 3 of the stamps from the Watercolour Alphabet Stamp SetMixed Media Herringbone StencilMixed Media 6mm Polka Dots Stencil, along the bottom a stamp from Pop Dots Stamp Set, and stamps from the Just Because Stamp Set

Chris made up one of the Paper Angel Fibre Board Substrates using the plain digital paper angel included with the kit which she coloured with pencils and stamped with small stamps from Whimsical Woodland Set 1 and Whimsical Woodland Set 4 .

Tracey has created a postcard portrait using the Mini Face StampsMini Face & Torso Template and the Blunt Bangs Long Portrait template. Influenced by the Pantone colour of 2018 Ultra Violet described as a provocative, thoughtful and dramatic shade of purple.

Beata has used Whimsical Words KitMixed Media Blanks-Accessories and butterflies from Mixed Media Blanks- Accessories Kit and created canva with photos. Word smile and butterfly are embossed with violet distress.


Terri was inspired by both the colours and flowers and although she didn't have the exact colour in her collection she created a card using the Designa knit stamp set. She chose a purple colour to work with and stamped the Pom poms over her Distress oxide background, they remind me of Alium flowers, some of them have a sparkle added.The sentiment is also from the Designa knit set.


Kerrie was inspired by watching a famous movie recently and created her favourite character using Female Portrait Templates 'Head & Torso' & 'Wavy Bunches' and 'Female Face Stamps'. Her untra violet roses background was made using 2 of the roses from the rose border stamp set and the 'Your Sparkle has not gone unnoticed' quote stamp - watercolours were used for the background and pencils for the background.

Kim struggles with this colour but gave the challenge a go, she used the mini profile Curly hair and Head & Torso mixed media templates, with the profile face stamp. The crown has been heat embossed along with a few stars from the profile stamp set. The roses inspired from the picture adorn her top.
