Guest Artist Artwork

 I just have to say that I love this Guest Artist thing!! :)  I love to see how others create with the same materials.    The January Guest Artist is Julie Fiorito.  Julie used the CTMH workshop kit called Avonlea.









After finishing the main layout in the kit, Julie went on to create two more layouts using more of the items in her kit.

First, this St. Patrick's Day layout...




And, a gal after my Crusin' Buddy's and my heart...a layout using some of the memorabilia collected when visiting a location.



Thanks so much, Julie for participating.!!

  2. On the first of every month, I will choose the guest artist for that month.
  3. Upon choosing the artists, I will send you one of Close To My Heart's Workshop on the Go kits. You will need to create the featured layout in the kit (you may jazz it up or put your own spin on it). Then, with all the products left over in the kit, you'll make as many items as you can. You may choose to do another two page layout and some cards, or a one page layout & cards, only cards, or choose something of your own to alter.You will have until the 20th of the month to get all of this done :)
