No not the physical kind although sometimes I think a punching bag would be great to relieve the stress. I mean the punches that you use to cut designs out of paper. There are many brands out on the market and you need to find one that suits your needs and budget.

My most used designs would have to be my 4 or 5 different butterfly ones and my circle ones that range from small (doesn't have a size) to the largest one at 6.4cm.

The challenge over Frosted Designs is Punches - use a punch or 2 to design a card, layout or mixed media project. The sponsor for the challenge is Boys Rules Kits

For my inspiration project I used 4 different sized circle punches and a heart punch.

Black, White + One

Pink is my one, I played around with orange, green, purple and aqua but decided on pink. The next question was what was I going to create to provide inspiration over at Frosted Designs for the fortnightly challenge.

When I began I am not sure what I was in my head but I know it was not this. Sometimes when things start to happen you just have to go with the flow.

The sponsor for the challenge is SpiegelMom's Scrap Shop on Etsy, why not pay her a visit and see what you can find.

Do you know what monochromatic means, well according to The Macquarie Concise Dictionary it means producing or pertaining to one colour or one wavelength.

Have I got you wondering where I am going with this?

I was working on a project for the Design Team at Scrap It With Attitude facebook group. This month the challenge is creating a layout paying tribute to your Mum and it is to be Monochromatic.

For inspiration I created a mixed media canvas that is Monochromatic, it is actually harder than it seems as I really wanted to add different colours, but I love the end result and my daughter Miss C has already asked me to make her one but it needs to be in pink, purple and green.

It is quite interesting what I would do to finish a piece of art. The three stems for the flowers are all finger knitted, yes you did read it right.

If you would like to take part in this challenge and have a facebook account please click on the link above and all you have to do is ask to join. There is even a prize up for grabs it is a $20 in store gift voucher from Shop and Crop Scrapbooking.

Hope to see your layouts really soon.

Happy creating
