Welcome to September's  Creative Challenge. Thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge.. it was a not at all Distressing to see such gorgeous creations! 

This month the theme is Going Round & Round and can be interpreted any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamps on it.    To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge.

Let's go round and round... around the world, as long as home is where the heart is !
To make this art journal page, I have used a background made with shaving foam (I will show you more this month about it), and stamped the circles from Decay Journaling Stamps #1 Size A5 with similar ink colours.
Then I stamped houses from Home Sweet Home A5 © Kathleen Fullman around some of these circles.
I wrote "around the world" and stamped "Home is where the heart is" from the same plate.

"Life is good with you around"....could apply to my partner, definitely to my Grandchildren, or even to you fabulous craft world friends out there!!.

I started this card off by stamping the SEQUIN WASTE OPEN stamp in blue ink, then with the SPLATS AND SWIRL mask, and texture paste, I used the three different sized circles to make these...erm...spheres!!..dont really know what they are supposed to be, I only know I have a fascination for circles and love trying to colour them so that they look dimensional!!. I used Brushos for the background and the circles. Finally I stamped the butterflies from the INSECTS AND BUTTERFLIES set, coloured them, then added them to my background with silicone glue for dimension.

I have made a card using PaperArty's new paint colours, in Koala, Mustard Pickle , and lemon Meringue, and stamping circles from Decay stamp range.
I coloured the large new Butterfly with Golden Sands infusions from PaperArtsy, and cut it out.  

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.
We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.
Have a very creative  month
