Happy New Year



On the first of each month, the designers at A Cherry on Top, post challenges to the membership on the site. I do an altered object challenge and focus each month on using something commonly found in the home to create something else...re-purposing.
This month, the object was paper plates. I used Tim Holtz flowers die and then sprayed the flower cut outs with Glimmer Mist. I love how soft the colors show up on the absorbent paper plate bottom and how crisp the petals remain. Layering is a snap with these.

To see the rest of the challenges, go to ACOT and on the home page use the pull down menu on the right top and click on contests and challenges.
