Hi everyone!  Goodness, it's me posting on the blog and it's not even a release week!  Shocking, I know!  LOL!  I'm actually sharing some exciting news about an updated challenge taking place on the eclectic Paperie blog today, which includes a one-day sale on gesso, an increased prize package, and a month-long challenge!  Full details below:  (I'm not sharing an altered book, this month's challenge, but a bunch of projects that include today's special...Gesso!)

  • eclectic Paperie has combined their two challenges into one, announced on the first Thursday of each month.  This gives the design team more flexibility with challenge topics and projects and allows you more time to enter!  

  • There will be a featured a product each month, and during the first day of the challenge, you’ll receive a discount on the featured product….be sure to check for the special code!  

  • The prize drawing is increasing from $15.00 to a $25.00 gift certificate and the winner of each challenge will be announced on the last Thursday of each month and will be featured on the eP blog.  

  •  Each month there will be a blog hop featuring the beautiful artwork from our design team…just scroll down to the bottom of the post for all of the links!  Talk about inspiration!!
 eP's challenges are about encouraging you to explore your creative journey and inspiring you to step outside of your comfort zone.  When you submit your artwork, share a unique card, scrapbook or journal page, a canvas, home d├ęcor project, or anything that you’re excited to share!  We’re looking forward to crafting with you!

Today’s special is on Liquidtex Gesso (clear and regular) and for one day only, you can save 10% on a bottle of gesso…perfect for all of your altered projects!  Simply use code GESSO03 when checking out.  Check the links below and check out all of the work from our design team.
