September 2014 Winners, Features, Finalists & Honourable Mentions

Hello everyone!  Thank you SO MUCH for your great participation last month!! 
 We were getting very worried behind the scenes as things started off really
 slowly but I think you were all just getting used to the idea of being back at
 work,having said goodbye to Summer over on the top half of the world. 
 We closed on a magnificent 108 entries!!!  

Despite everything we do, without YOUR participation SATW would be worthless,
so THANK YOU for making our dreams come true & playing along!!


We do not accept cards, tags or off-the-page items.
We accept layouts, canvases & art-journal page.
Thank you for your understanding.
Judging would be impossible if we had such a variety.

We ask for your NAME & COUNTRY so that, if you are featured,
we can include your correct details in the Wall of Fame.
SATW is all about international participation so it's vital
that we know where you are from to highlight that!

 OF YOUR PROJECT & that you link back to your actual blog post,
 not your entire blog, or we won't be able to view it.

September 2014 Winner is Yulia Mozhova from Ukraine.
Yulia will also be invited back as our December GUEST DESIGNER!!

Congratulations Yulia!
Your layout epitomizes the entire feel of Amy's mood board!
The texture, depth & detail you have created from a sheet of
white cardstock is also absolutely INCREDIBLE!!

Now for places 2 - 5 in that order
Here are our TOP 4 FEATURES

2nd place goes to Irina Angold from Russia!

Irina says she tried to capture the Fairytale feel of the mood board,
which she lives every day as she is a very happy person.  Well,
that definitely shows in her light, airy & beautiful page.
Congratulations Irina!  Incredible!!

3rd place goes to Elena Tretiakova from Russia!

Congratulations Elena!
Such a soft colour palette (taken only from the binoculars image,
& a complete fairytale page!!
Whimsical, delicate & just WOW!!!

4th place goes to Val Thorpe from South Africa!

Congratulations Val!
Your layout was a firm favourite with our Design Team
& I'm sure you can all see why!!
I love how Val has steered clear of the pinks yet still
created something so indicative of the board.  Fabulous!!!

5th place goes to Linda Eggleton from Australia!

Congratulations Linda!
Linda used a photograph of a huge library, in keeping with the image
on the mood board, as well as some cogs & a butterfly image
inspired by the wings, to a brilliant result!!!

Now onto 6th - 10th place, in that order.

6th place goes to Ewik from Poland!

Congratulations Ewik!
An artful masterpiece!!  Love the colours from the 
books & we all know that Paris is a fairytale destination!!

7th place goes to Agnieszka from Poland!

Congratulations Agnieszka!
I love the way Agnieszka replaced the cogs for buttons but kept the
 soft colours, wings & flowers, really making the mood board work for her...

8th place goes to Martha from Poland!

Martha was inspired by the wings & the cogs & created this amazing
framed canvas.  You really need to see the close ups to see how the
sequins, micro-beads & glass pebbles contribute to the fairytale feel.
Congratulations Martha!

9th place goes to Fiona Paltridge from Australia!

Fiona really went full throttle with the fairytale theme & created this 
AWESOME canvas based on a fairytale! Alice in Wonderland!!
Beautiful job & love the soft, subtle colourings & pretty handwriting.

10th place goes to Nicole Doiron from Canada!

Congratulations Nicole!  Such a fairtyale layout,
from the photos, to the embellishments & the soft touch!!
Everything is so pretty!!!
