....And Now For "Something Completely Different"........

Morning!!!!

Well today is our first challenge on "Something Completely Different" and for me it has been great getting messy with acrylics and collage again. It seemed like ages since I had done any of that... We have a wee prize up for grabs too, the winner will be selected randomly next week!

So we hope you will try something different with our challenges. There will be a set creation for the month but a different theme each week.

This month we are in the wonderful world of "Twinchies" - which are 2 inch square and can be decorated any way you like. You can even add them to your cards as a topper.

The theme this week is "WINGS"!!

SCD 15 May 09

I have used acrylics, cosmic shimmers and some spray paint for the background, my cute 'lil angel is from a collage sheet. I stamped a border round part of the edge, added some German Scrap flowers and a small label to finish.

We would love you to pop over and have a go, even if you've never done a Twinchie don't worry - Just go For It!!!

Twinchies are just so quick to make and brilliant for using up bits and bobs of stash.

You're only limited by your imagination..........
