New Monthly Challenge

Welcome to the first challenge held on my blog. I'm so excited about being able to share some DecoArt products with you all, and hope you can regularly take part.

It is a Mixed Media challenge that focuses on the 12 signs of the Zodiac. Each month I will bring you  new inspiration to help your creatively flow.

The rules- I will add these to a separate page for easy reading.

You can use any brands for your projects
Any substrate.  
Your project must follow the theme of the month. 
Please explain in your blog Post what your inspiration was and how it influenced your project. 
State you are entering your project into the challenge and link to the challenge on my blog - 3 challenges in total please. Most importantly this challenge is for my followers only. So please hit the follow link before entering your project to the challenge (if you are not yet following me) and leave me a comment so I know you have visited:)  Thank you.

The winner will be picked by random.org, and sent some DecoArt  goodies and because it's the first challenge I will also throw in some stash. 

Starting Next Month I will be choosing a top 3, one of whom, will be asked to be part of the inspiration for the following month. You will also receive a badge for your blog.

To add your project hit link at the bottom of this post, please ensure that you only link to your project as if I can't find it, you won't be entered.
