The Majestic Month of February

In the majestic month of February, we are highlighting Royalty! We'll be exploring this theme all month and focusing on adding sparkle to your art. We hope you have fun forming some remarkable regal creations!

We are pleased to welcome Shelly Hickox as our February Muse! We look forward to her fabulous work throughout February! To see some of her wondrous art now, check out her blog, StampTramp.


We would also like to welcome our Visiting Artists for the month who will be sharing their wonderful talents with us in our challenges! We are happy to have Holly Brown, Autumn Hathaway and Sandi McLean joining us in February!

We have lots of fun things coming up this month:

~ our 4 regular challenges: Chestnut Theme, Spicy Supply, Random Redhead and Color

~ 4 more wrap-ups with more stunning Ginger Gem art and 4 new Home Page Artists

~ a Muse Showcase highlighting the artwork of Shelly Hickox along with 2 posts from Shelly herself later on this month to inspire you

~ some great new tutorials from our Gingers including new posts by Petra Berendsen, Jean Franks Beck and Jules Eickmeier

~ another great edition of Jennie's Dimensional Diva column

Checking in with our Gingersnappers

We kept our Gingersnappers busy this January with lots of Yahoo Group Special Content!

We had a sketch challenge:

Here's Gerrie Johnnic's take on our design.

We also had a great recipe challenge (2 stamps, 0 diecuts, 1 piece of ribbon and 1 piece of bling) to ring in 2011 properly. Here are a couple of their great entries:

Finally, we did our Technique of the Month - Paper Piecing.

We'll be having some more fun this month with a brand-new recipe and a new sketch challenge and our Technique of the Month for February is marbling. We even have a fresh Art Exchange opening this month, Heart Coasters.

If you want to get in on this month's special content for the GC Yahoo Group or sign up for our current Art Exchange, why not become a Gingersnapper yourself and join our group? The membership process is easy and the fellowship is phenomenal!

Get into the fun of this regal theme and play along with us all February!
