A challenge for myself.

In my attempt to keep the mojo going I thought I'd make up a little challenge for myself. I started by writing down a list of supplies/embellishments that I have, and a list of techniques to do. After I had them all in these bowls

I choose three out of each.

I ended up with use felt,pearls and waxy flax. Then I got random stamp paper, paint, and distress nothing with ink(those of you that know me KNOW this is a stretch for me) love those dirty pages!
I got my pictures and basic supplies together and the ones I was required to use with this layout. The challenge is to just use paper with these embellishments and techniques. This is what my random stamped page looks like.

The ink colours are:
Heavenly Blue
Clover Meadow
The stamp sets are:
Circle Around
Today's Date
All by Close to my Heart

These are the completed pages.

Products used: pp sassafras, bungle jungle-treetops
heartfelt shapes in whimsy(ctmh)
ceramcoat in magnolia white
pearls Kaiser in Lush
Waxy flax in colonial white
This challenge only took me around one hour to do! If you would like to join me, use the three embellishments and three techniques I used and make your own(it can be one or two pages). Then leave me a comment so I can come see! Hope you like them. Have a great Friday!!!
