Whipup and mixtape do a dance

Hooray for collaboration and cross promotion!!

Kathreen from Whipup will be doing a weekly roundup of all the crafty happenings at whipup - and I will be doing the same thing called "mixtape mash" over at Whipup. We have just finished a 2 day competiton over at Whipup for giveaways of the HOT OFF THE PRESS Issue 8. I will be choosing winners over the weekend.

Welcome to March - and some seasonal changes are in the air. Whipup
has a new feature section at the top of the page how do you like it?
This is where some stories will be able to stay for a little longer -
competitions and features and roundups will appear.

Last week on whipup I was drooling over spoonflower
fabric designs - and this week my fabric designs arrived in the mail.
I did a few different designs - the most successful I thought were the
kids drawings - together we scanned in a few of their drawings and
played around with colour and flipping them around and tiling them in
photoshop - here are our results. I also have been having fun with
vintage maps - and like the outcomes of these too.

The results of last weeks fabric
are in and the two winners of $25 voucher from this and
that from Japan etsy store are Jesselyn and Monica T - winners have
been contacted via email - thank you all for entering - our current
competition is a chance to win a copy
of the latest mixtape zine - enter here.

Did you see the grumpasaurus
