Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #7 - Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful first week of December!! It's time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land and it's everyone's favorite - Anything Goes using a brand of dies that SL sells!! There are over 40 to choose from!!

M

For my project, I created a mixed media canvas for my niece for Christmas. She just redecorated her room with a Paris theme and she loves colors. The  papers were adhered to the canvas and then brushed with a wash of Gesso to tone down the colors. Random stamps were stamped on the background. A Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil was used with Wendy Vecchi embossing paste, and a The Crafter's Workshop along the bottom with WV Black Stencil Paste. Another TCW stencil was used along the top.


The banners were cut with Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets Dies and covered in Sugar Coating. The letters are Die-Versions Downhill Fonts. The adorable plane and banner are from Obsession Impression. The butterflies are Memory Box Darla dies. The flowers are from WIld Orchid Crafts.

The doll is a Julie Nutting Doll stamp. She was colored with Prismacolor pencils, stamped with a text stamp, covered with Glossy Accents, tulle was added to her skirt, gems for the buttons, as well as a feather to her hat. She was outlined in charcoal for added dimension.


The Eiffel Tower is a LaLa Land Eiffel Tower die, cut once in black for a shadow and cut again and covered in Sugar Coating. It was placed over an X-Cut Doily Die.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. DL.Art - December Linky
2. Decorate to Celebrate - A/G
3. Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday 

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Scrapy Land to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Anything Goes using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

Ooh la la indeed!!! My sweetest friend, I have dearly missed your mixed media adventures! They make me swoon. You need to come teach me how to do this! :o) The background is stunning and every incredible detail atop it is beautiful! Your niece is going to flip over this! The Paris banner is so lively and that Eiffel Tower die is my favorite! The doll looks amazing, as does her precious companion, and I am thoroughly enamored with your trail of flowers and butterflies! Spectacular design, my dear Lisa! I can feel the joy with which you created this. :o) Have a beautifully blessed day!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

I hope your week is going well! Any snow lately? We are just getting colder it seems :( It is about 5 above these days which is horrible compared to last year. At least it's not snowing for all the running I have been doing lately~sure is easier to get around without dealing with the snow. I was able to just about finish up with Christmas shopping. Yeah! I really want to have that all wrapped up this wknd and get it all under the tree so I can focus on some holiday baking! Do you do any baking?
have a great evening!
