We love scrappy mail here at S&G and love even more to share all the inspiration and fantastic creations you have all been coming up with over this past month.
Here is some more of the Scrappy goodness that has come to our inbox -

 6" x 6" layout from Anne, we love the little spotty butterflies and tonings of this layout.

 a 6x9 layout from Tiddlypeep, a great slant on the title and we love the paper roses...

an ATC card from Leigh , this looks fantastic with part of the featured quote and some stunning inks

 a 12 x 12 layout from Trish we totally love the use of your papers and the transparency clock -  love it!

Thank you to all who have sent us your creative projects so far and we look forward to sharing more as they are sent to us so that you can gather some great inspiration from some of those quirky quotes that are roaming our cyberspace.

January Challenge Entries

It's not easy trying to get a new challenge blog up and running, and we would like to extend a big thank-you to those of you who have taken the time to contribute to our first ever challenge. We're so glad that we have managed to inspire you enough to do so.
We're really excited to share with you the first artworks we've received for our January Challenge...thank you so much for your beautiful contributions.

First cab off the rank is Amy Sheppard from NSW with her take on the challenge. Amy has decided to do her monthly challenges on double-sided jumbo playing cards, and here is her creation...

 Next we have a creation from Sue Smith, also from NSW, with her A5 art journal entry....

Here is a link to Sue's blog so you can check out her other creations.

Well done girls!

We would love to see more contributions for January, so let's get creating!
Please don't forget to send us a link to your blog so everyone can see what else you've created.

January Shits & Giggles

Welcome to January. We hope that you have enjoyed all the festive cheer and have set about making all those New Year resolutions that you can tweak and change and still achieve by the end of the year.

We have such a fun Quirky Quote for you to play with this month and the visual is very monochromatic and the shapes and curves from her hair are wicked. Can you see how fantastic they will look when you also incorporate them into your work? Have fun with it and we can't wait to see what you come up with.....

Feel free to do any format and style you like...here are a couple of examples from the Shits & Giggles Team to get the creativity going......

This page has been done in an A4 Visual Arts Diary.....

.....and this one is a 6"x6" page....

Please email pictures of your creations to shitsngiggles2012@hotmail.com plus your name and a link to your blog. We'll then upload all your beautiful work to this blog for everyone to appreciate.
