Helen says -

"I decided to make my box into a scene, so it’s no good for keeping things in, but fun to open!

I’ve picked out stamps from the Artistic Outpost range, stamps to build up the backgrounds and for the central images. I’ve always loved the weather vane from the Home plate and decided to just use a part of it to fit the box.

The backgrounds inside the box are stamped onto painted squares of paper and then just slotted in.Making little scenes like this is always great fun."

In our Facebook challenges any type of artwork is eligible - card, altered object, mixed media piece, layout, fabric work etc. Just use at least one item that can be bought from the Happy Daze shop in the work and post a pic on the Facebook wall , maximum 3 entries per person. Closing date is midnight Sunday 17 April and again one entry will be drawn at random to win a £15 Gift Voucher to spend in the shop. Looking forward to seeing your art work.
