Fantasy Crafters Challenge 1 - Anything Goes Fantasy

Good Morning!! Well the day has finally arrived & the team are very excited to be opening our new challenge blog here at Fantasy Crafters!
You've had chance to meet us all and I hope we provide you with some inspiration, we have a diverse team to suit most tastes and above all we hope you enjoy visiting us and taking part in the monthly challenges.

So what are we about?  In a word, Fantasy!  We have very few rules here but the main one is that your entry has to be fantasy related.

Fantasy aka Make believe can be a wide variety of depictions such as Unicorns, Fairies, Pixies and mermaids as favoured by several of the Teamies or you can go for the darker elements favoured by Teamie Michelle and enter Dragons, Witches, Ghosts and Vampires.  This also includes works known as Fantasy Scapes because I particularly LOVE looking at these!
Screenshots of Pokemon Go won't count though haha!

Items can be fully handcrafted, hybrid or fully digital and can be anything your little heart desires to make including scrapbooks like Teamie Tracey, Cards, ATC's, altered tin cans, whatever you like.

You can combine your entry with as many other challenges as you like *but* usual rules apply that it must not be posted prior to the start of our challenge.

Some months we will be sponsored and have prizes, others we will not so that the team can freestyle!  We will have a monthly top 3 chosen by the team and highly commended awards.  You may even feature in a mid way spotlight.

So now to introduce our 1st Challenge which is Anything Goes (Fantasy themed of course!) and here's the girls x

Introducing the team 5

Hello again!  And we have another new teamie to introduce and that is...

Hello my name is Tracey Campbell and I am from New South Wales in Australia. I am an obsessed scrapbooker who loves to share my designs with everyone who will give me five minutes to show them to. Lucky for me I have a very understanding husband who has his own hobbies and two beautiful but cheeky daughters. I love anything and everything fantasy so I can not wait to share my Fantasy Crafters Creations with you. 

Welcome Tracey x

Introducing the team 4

And we're back again with our 4th team member and that is....

Hi! I'm Michelle (catzncards) and I'm a 47 year old disabled lone parent and live with my 12 year old son and two crazy cats in Surrey, England. I've been crafting seriously for a couple of years, when was introduced to card making. This quickly led on to other mostly paper based creations, including pocket letters and altered art. I've recently started creating an art journal which I find extremely enjoyable. My favourite genres are fantasy, gothic, steam punk and abstract. I enjoy working in a variety of mediums and I am a collector of random junk to add to my art. This is my fourth DT I work in and really enjoy creating projects for them.

Welcome Michelle x
