Design Team call

We are looking for Design Team members for a brand new COLOURING CHALLENGE coming in 2017. 

This will be a great challenge with team members from around the world - please see the requirements below:

1 x monthly project hand coloured with a medium of your choice (ie pencils, markers, distress inks etc, it's up to you what you use).
Your colouring and crafting must be of a high standard so your work can promote our sponsors images in a professional way.
You must have your own blog and be on at least 2 social media platforms (ie Facebook, Instagram etc)
Great selection of different sponsor images each month.
You will be required to comment on our entries using a rota system, vote on entries etc and to promote and engage on social media.
You must be able to fulfil your commitment to the team and be professional.

We are looking for great international colourists who would love to be part of a friendly, awesome team of crafters who just love colouring. The challenge will start in the New Year and is not affiliated to a particular brand, meaning that we will have a diverse range of international sponsors who lovingly donate their images to the team to use in return for promotion.

If you would like to apply please email me HERE together with:
a short paragraph of why you'd like to apply
A list of other teams you are currently on

Wk 33 - Anything Goes Colouring Craft Challenge

Welcome back to another new challenge...

Our lovely challenge is here to help inspire you to try out Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils - if you've never tried these amazingly lush pencils then check out all the links at the top of the page to find out more. They are top quality pencils which need minimum blending - if you're a Polychomo/Prisma fan you really need to check them out because we have all switched from those brands because we find Lyra's much faster to work with, easier to blend and superb colours and lightfastness that is superior to most of the others on the market - and they're an amazing price too!

Our challenge today is
