Craft It Up & Link It Up - Anything Goes

For my challenge and giveaway at Do More With Less, click HERE


I am excited to be posting today as a guest designer for the second week of the Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas!! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!

This linky party theme is Anything Goes. The sponsors for this challenge are:

Robin's Nest - $10 giftcard
Cardz TV - Stamp set of choice

The more you link up, the better chance you have to win. Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.


My project today was inspired by Tim Holtz's August tags. I used his techniques to create a travel wall hanging. I started with a piece of heavyweight cardboard and painted it black. I then ripped a map from an old atlas, crumpled it up and soaked it in a mixture of TH Walnut Distress Stain, Old Paper Distress Stain and water. Once it dried, I used Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium to adhere it to another piece of heavyweight cardboard and attached it to the black. The corners are TH Idea-ology Metal Page Corners.


I followed Tim's instructions (HERE) for the tags, but used watercolor paper instead, and I used his new stencils on the background. The images were adhered to thin cardboard painted black.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Little Scrap Pieces - Linky Party
  2. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
  3. Sunday Funday - August Linky Party
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party
You have one week left...I hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!

My sweetest friend, what an incredible idea to make a travel wall hanging! It's perfect for your family. :o) It turned out fantastic. I love the map background and the marvelous corners. The tags are complete perfection! You create backgrounds like none other, my dear Lisa. The stencils/stamps were used so brilliantly. They look like actual mementos from your travels. :o) Amazing work as always, my super talented friend! I wonder what you'll treat us to next. :o)
