Challenge 29, Week Four

Hello everyone, and welcome to another week on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you for the wonderful entries that have been coming in for the challenge so far. We hope that you are enjoying the current colour scheme and the inspiration provided by the Design Team each week for you. We hope that if you have not entered already, you will try and find a bit of time amongst your Christmas preparations and join in with the challenge. We encourage all levels of crafter from beginners just starting out,  to advanced, and the winner is always chosen at random, so everyone has an equal chance of winning the prize. You can add your entry to the link in this post.

We have more Design Team inspiration for you this week, both on a floral theme. Magda has created a pretty ATC, using our newest floral stamps:
Zoe has created a lovely tag using a pretty poppy stamp:
Both of these designs are sure to remind you of warmer days, and chase away the Winter blues. We hope that these projects will inspire you to rummage through your own crafty supplies and create something for the challenge.

We are taking the opportunity this week to meet another member of the Design Team. Dominike is going to introduce herself to you, so that you can get to know her a little better.

Dominike writes:


My name is Dominique, Dominike for my artwork. I am a French self taught Artist living with my husband in Poitiers, between Paris and La Rochelle where I was born.

In 'another life' I managed a mayors' association and was the coach for elected representatives.

Craft has always been my passion for a long time. I used to experiment wth rubber stamps ten years ago when I was unemployed. Then it became a habit. My art is scrap to mixed media. The work I prefer is to make books and different things with fabrics. I like to make greetings cards and Art Journals. My experience includes teaching mixed media art workshops across France, which has always been a great pleasure for me.

I am the mother of two children. I almost died at the birth of my first child in 1978. So, after that bad experience I looked at life with another eye. Every morning is a day more! Optimist is my first quality. I like colours, jazz and the cinema. All is necessary to make beautiful projects.

Thank you so much for your biography Dominike, it was lovely to learn more about you.

We will be back next week with another post, and more projects to share with you. If you have any questions, and cannot see the answers on the blog pages, please send us a private message using the contact form located at the very end of this post; you will see it after the comments section.
