A big hello and warm welcome to both you and 2012! It's the first week of the new year which hopefully will hold many days of inspiration, happiness and discoveries. I'm still kind of in limbo... I haven't taken down my decorations yet, there's lots of Christmas pressies awaiting their new place of residence and I've got a backlog of housework and projects to make you wince! The first Monday of the year also means a brand new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp & Show! This week it's the very fitting theme of 'Something Old, Something New". After all the indulgence of the holidays with the full-on festive glittery glam stuff, I really fancied some bright Spring-like colours and some stress-free crafting.
My Mind's Eye. I used Matt Medium and then sanded the edges to get a good finish. I then inked the edges with Aged Mahogany.
I painted Art Part leaves with Claudine's Sky Blue paint and stamped two of Wendy's 'Just Fly' butterflies onto Clearly for Art.
I used a trio of scrap ribbons in matching colours and layered them up with fab words from this great set, also by Wendy.
Design Team blog and get your creative thinking caps on. The $50 prize is just the job after the festive splurge! Look at that... a fancy new logo too! Have a great week and thanks for the visit. Sarah.
