It's as simple as black and white for SATW with 13 arts and Wycinanka

  Scrap Around The World has a Challenge number FIVE!

Please note we have modified our rules!!

{please read our "To be Eligible for Judging" further down

as there's a slight change there too}.

 1)  The sketch is now OPTIONAL - you do not HAVE to use it 

{but of course you are welcome to use it as a starting point

 & for your inspiration if you like!}, this makes it easy for you to 

combine our challenges with sketch challenges if you want :)

2)  We now accept art journaling pages BUT only double-spreads with a 

minimum single page size of 14 x 19cm (5.5 x 7.5 inches) per page.

3)  Our challenges will now run until midnight EST on the last of the month

     {this means you have an entire month to complete the challenge - woohoo!}.

loved ones/a dependency (image 4) 

your wild side/things not everyone knows about you (image 5).
