We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

Challenge 79 A Bit of Finnabair (include metal bits/flowers/lace)

We are hoping this will inspire some of you to join in with us as this time we want you to think of the wonderful art of Ania Dabrowski (or Finnabair as she is mostly known) and produce something where you have included metal bits (think flowers, pen nibs, gears and things); flowers (be they your own or bought ones like those Finn uses from Prima) and lace, torn paper - anything you can think of.  A mixture of all or just one or two of the pieces mentioned above.

You don't have to include a photograph but you can if you want to.  Are you a scrapbooker?  If so this should be right up your street and it should be up right up the alley with mixed media artists.  Card makers, well we are sure you have used lots of embellishments on cards in the past so we think this is open to everyone.

Just to give you a bit of inspiration here is what we have done:

Need did a canvas (because she is addicted to doing them) - but she does not expect you to do a canvas - a card/tag/atc is fine

Wendy made a canvas as well.

So, now we would love you to join in with us and make something decorative - be it a card, a tag, a scrapbook layout, a canvas - or whatever.  We would love to see it!

Love this theme! Not that it will be easy for me as I don't know how to do 3D pages but it will be definitely Finnabair inspired!
