A New Design Team and Layout To Share!

I'm excited to announce that I have joined the design team at
 The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog!   This month's challenge is "Think Pink"!

All we ask is that you create a project and incorporate some pink into it.  I created this layout using paper from Blue Fern Studios Sanctuary collection along with some Blue Fern Studios chipboard, lots of layering with masks, mists, paints, stamps, lace, washi tape and embossing.

A few closeups:

We have a wonderful prize this month, a $25.00 gift card from Ellen Hutson LLC, an online store.

You can check out more details of the Think Pink Challenge here, along with some inspiration from the design team.  You have until February 28th, 11:59 pm to enter.

Thanks for stopping by!

C'est Magnifique February Sketch & Layout

The first of the month is reveal day for the 
February sketch at C'est Magnifique
I created this layout using the February kit, "Bird Song."
  I used elements from the main kit along with the embellishment add on and flower add on kit, all of which can be found here in the store. 
From my stash:  modeling paste, stencil, stamp, ink and wire.

A few closeups:  

Here is the February sketch, designed by me!

We would love to see YOU use our sketch as inspiration for a layout. We have very few rules for our Sketch Challenge. As a matter of fact, we have just one rule, we want your layout to resemble the sketch. Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, but we do want to look at your layout and be able to see that you used the sketch. Other than that, you are free to use anything you have in your personal stash, and we welcome all styles of scrapbooking. 

We will award two prizes for this sketch challenge. The first prize will be a collection of paper, flowers, chipboard, and embellishments selected by C'est Magnfique's owner Deonna. The winner of the prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping! 

Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store, will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 

We will also choose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of January to submit your layout.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1. You must be a follower of our blog. It's easy to become follower - see the left sidebar.

2. Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool below. Please link to the blog post where you have uploaded your layout (not your general blog address). If you do not have a blog, you may link to an online gallery.

  The deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, February 28, 2015 (US time).
Have fun with the sketch. We can't wait to see how you use it!

Thanks for stopping by!
