Guess who's this months Guest Designer at Orange Paperie??

Huge hello today,

Super exciting news to share, I'm November's guest designer for Orange Paperie and Co!!  So happy to be part of the "Co" - such a FAB bunch of ladies.
Ok, so, Kim has set the challenge and this month it is the base of your project... all you need to do is start with this as your base layer.



and here is my layout... I spent a lot of time with the base creating the circles with Gesso and then sewing around them... lots of mist and some water pencils and then built the layout from there.  LOVE this photo of Caitlin, totally unprompted and a heap of fun!



and close ups...





and I also got to share my craft space... it is not this tidy that often so I thought I would also include it here...


Caitlin sits there on the left next to my sewing machine and I sit opposite her.  There is also more IKEA storage behind me which you can't see.

So, I hope you all get the chance to play along this month, I have a feeling we are going to see a heap of interesting takes on this challenge :)

Gwen
