Personalise It!

Good morning Incy Wincy friends - it's Helen here with the latest challenge and some more exciting news from Incy Wincy Towers for you.

We have another New Team Member, so we're saying a very warm welcome to 
Make sure you pop by her blog and check out all the mixed media she creates!!

We're also saying welcome back to Hev who is hosting Incy Wincy on Facebook - click on the link to go to the group and find out what's going on over there ... you can even post your entries there too!!!

Wow! All our entrants in the last challenge were certainly feeling the love - so many entries! Although I couldn't comment on all your entries, please rest assured that I have visited them all and you certainly made choosing a Top 3 very difficult - my short-list wasn't short at all!

After much to-ing and fro-ing around your very varied entries to our challenge, my Top 3 are (in numerical order) ... 
3 - Christine - I love the clever elegance and simplicity of your card
16 - VaNNessa - what a pretty pocket letter you created
85 - Michelle H - this image is just soooo cute and I love your layout

And the winners of our prizes (as chosen by Mr Random) are:


65 - Anet who wins a $15USD voucher from Polkadoodles.

Carol and Anet please email us for your prizes, and we hope that you will all grab your blog badges and wear them with pride!

Now onto this week's challenge. We'd like you to 
Personalise It!
We'd like to you personalise your project to suit the recipient and, if it's not obvious how your project is personalised, please can you let us know how your project is personal in your post.

For this challenge we're being sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy who are offering one lucky winner a prize


Oddball Art who are offering our second lucky winner 3 digital images of your choice
Lizzy has always loved the stranger, quirkier side of life and that is exactly what she loves to create. Her art described as a perfect combination of sweet and sour that glitters up the grunge! As a lover of all things whimsical, kawaii and creepy cute, she throws in some Pastel Goth with a touch of glam, punk & rockabilly pinup!
She has certainly never been a mainstream type of girl and definitely won't fit into your stereotypical cookie cutter artists role;  but rather she finds beauty in the truly unique, big eyed creepy little cuties with a bittersweet sadness. She is never truly happier then when she is in her art studio painting or sewing, creating a whimsical dream world easily recognizable as her signature style of creepy yet cute, all the way from the haunting darkness to the rainbowtastic, Lizzy’s creations are lovingly sprinkled with a heartbreaking sweetness.
Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that she is creating today.  Lizzy employs many different mediums when she creates, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same;  A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.
