Challenge no. 19 - Patchwork Effect

Hello Everyone

Welcome to Monday and welcome to a new challenge here at Scrap Africa!
Apologies for the delay in this posting, but between Blogger and my PC, it has been a little bit of a struggle!

Marlelize is hosting the challenge today and this is her challenge to you: 
My challenge to you is to create a background with a patchwork effect, wether it's achieved by using paper piecing or any other medium you like.

Guest Designer Badge

We have a super local Guest Designer to share some inspiration with us today, and that is the wonderful Ansie Saaiman.  Ansie is the owner of The Scrappers Village in Edenglen, Edenvale.  It is a super little scrappers haven for all your scrapbooking supplies and needs.

The Scrappers Village also does wonderful kits for easy and fuss free scrapbooking.

This is such a stunning page! I love Ansie's interpretation of the patchwork, which with the colouring is so very effective! Thanks so much Ansie for this awesome inspiration.

We have some more eye-candy from Victoria.

Sketch no.19

Morning Everyone

I hope you had a super weekend!

We have a fabulous new sketch challenge, to start off the day and the month!
Isn't time just flying....July already!

So here is the super sketch by Evgenia. It's a goodie!!!!

Guest Designer Badge

We have a super guest designer this month and she has been TOP 3 quite a few times now in the last few challenges.  She is a local lady and it is always exciting for us to show off some local talent.

Hi, my name is Lee and I live in an almost seaside, almost village along the Garden Route in Sunny 
South Africa. I am a SAHM to 3 mostly well behaved teenagers and I am married to the most wonderful 
person. I am close enough to everything I need (food, etc) but far away from everything I want 
(Scrabooking stuff). If we have seven cars pass through this huddle of houses in 5 minutes, it constitutes 
peak hour traffic. I have been scrapping on and off for a few years but since moving to “nowhere” I have 
renewed my addiction with a vengeance. I am sometimes forced to be extremely creative in my pages 
because I cannot run out to a store to get matching papers or matching flowers. Thank you Scrap Africa 
for the opportunity to be a guest designer on your blog, I love playing along with your challenges.

Lee created this stunning layout below. The background and detailing is just gorgeous!
Thanks so much Lee for sharing it with us.

As always, we have a wonderful line-up of projects from the Design Team.
