Well life for me has been crazy and busy. I had a chance to make these cards last week as my therapy with dealing with life, but didn't get them shared until now. Still before the Feb 1 deadline so all is good right? Here are my cards for the Viva La Verve sketch.

For my project, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and use colors and designs that I don't usually use. I used some bright orange dp with white flowers on it. I don't usually stencil on top of dp, but again comfort zone. I used blue and light green paint and
ARTplorations Floral Flutes Stencil and
ARTplorations Overlap Stencil
I added white paint over the Overlap stenciled areas. I added gold glitter and I splattered the page with gold and white paint. I used the blue and green to go around the edges of the calendar page. I plan to keep this calendar in my craft room to remind me to step out of the comfort zone more often.
It is not to late to join our monthly Mixed Media Challenge.

Pardon my thumb in the photo. I had to hold the tag at an angle so I could photograph the subtle golden stenciled flower I used ARTplorations FLORAL FLUTES
I also used
I also used CUTplorations TAG O'COFFEE DIE
I finished my tag off with twine, pearls, a rose and used tea bags.
