Au bonheur des livres: Blog Launch, Giveaway and Design Team Call


J'adore les livres, et je relaie ici l'excellente idée d'Autumn  (SewPaperPaint) qui dans un nouveau blog de challenges met à l'honneur les mini-albums, scrapbooks, journaux et autres livres faits main. Voici son article, visible aussi ICI.

"Blog Launch Giveaway and Design Team Call


Mini Album Makers Challenge is pleased to announce the launch of this new challenge blog that focuses on handmade mini albums, scrapbooks, journals and book arts. If you've longed for a place to share and learn more about creating such books, please take a moment to become a follower! Our monthly challenge theme is any handmade book goes. 


Follower's Giveaway!
To encourage growth in this new venture, I'm offering a giveaway of a $25 gift card to the Funkie Junkie Boutique to one lucky follower. All you need to do to enter is become a follower. I would love for you to add our blog badge below to your sidebar to help us grow. Please link it to our homepage. If you do so, please leave a comment and you will receive an extra entry in the draw. If you copy and paste this post and repost it on your blog you can receive a third entry. Just say so in the comments below and give a link to your post. The winner will be announced on September 1st in our inaugural challenge post.



I’m looking for a team of five or so creative individuals who will share design team duties to include:

1. As a part of the monthly challenge inspiration, one project photo per month with link to your own personal blog post containing a tutorial or tips and tricks for assembling one of the abovementioned book forms.
2. Rotating with other DT members to post one complete tutorial on challenge blog per month. (If five team members, then one complete project every five months.)
3. Encourage, comment and support challenge entries.

Please email Autumn at teamclark@rocketmail.com with questions or applications. Include your blog and social media links with a permalink to your favorite handmade book(s). Please note this is a teaching blog and all projects, even if they are CASEd from another designer, must be tutorial based (photos or videos). Applications will be taken through August 25. Selected applicants will be notified by August 28. Challenges begin September 1 with DT announcement (including a photo of your application book and backlink to that post – no new project necessary for September). Thanks and best of luck!


Please share with your friends and get projects ready for our first challenge September 1!"

Félicitations, Autumn, et tous mes voeux de succès à ce nouveau challenge blog!
A bientôt!

A Deauville (DT Creative Artiste)

Bonjour et bienvenue au 29ème challenge de Creative Artiste Mixed Media!
Hi and welcome to the 29th challenge at Creative Artiste Mixed Media!
Ce mois-ci Maja Design est à l'honneur, avec ses magnifiques papiers. J'en ai fait une petite cabine de plage, à l'ancienne:
This month the spotlight is on the wonderful papers of Maja Design. I made a vintage beach hut with them:


 Les couleurs sont celles de l'été,
The colours are those of Summer,
 et bien sûr quelques coquillages et étoile de mer ont été ramassés
and of course some shells and starfish were gathered
et reposent sur le sable
and lie on the sand


 Des fanions volent au vent.
Flags fly in the wind.
 La porte est roulée et relevée.
The door is rolled and lift up.
 *     *     *
J'ai découpé les papiers dans la collection Vintage Autumn Basics
I cut the papers in the Vintage Autumn Basics collection
 J'ai fabriqué un pochoir sur le thème de la plage, et j'y ai appliqué de la pâte texture, que j'ai encrée.
I made a stencil on a beach theme, and I put texture paste, that I inked.
Les fanions sont reliés par une cordelette fixée avec deux brads.
The flags are linked with a cord attached with brads. 
Du sable est collé à la base de la cabine.
Sand is glued at the bottom of the hut.
Venez découvrir ce que mes camarades de l'équipe de Creative Artiste ont réalisé, et tentez de gagner le prix de notre sponsor Maja Design:
Come see what my team mates created at  Creative Artiste, and try to win the prize of our sponsor Maja Design:
