Well you know by now what the first Monday of the month means - it's a new challenge from
Before I tell you what this month's theme is, we have had a few questions about why the challenge is called Without Words when we do actually use sentiments - at the top of the challenge is the quote from Horace (a Roman poet) that actually inspired the creation of the challenge
"A picture is a poem without words"
which, when you consider that our focus is on handcoloured images and encouraging you to practice and improve your colourwork rather than hiding behind embellishments, you can see why that quote is so perfect.
But yes, we still use sentiments (because we can)!
Right then, onto our new theme and it is an old theme
