LESSology Challenge #4: The Wall Art Challenge

Hello and thanks for stoppin' by!

Have you heard about LESSology's current Challenge:



Our sponsor for Challenge #4 is Tradefish Designs who is generously offering our winner a $20 gift certificate to the Tradefish Designs store! 


I have an altered 4x4 Burlap Canvas to share with you:

I have a little tip for you....do you know how many varying shades of kraft there are out there?  A little trick I use for patterned kraft paper is to flip it over and use the solid side on the same project.  That's what I did for the die cut that the silhouette is nestled on.  It was a piece of scrap from the Hambly chandelier sheet...I simply flipped it over and die cut it...smacked on the rub-on and BAM...matchy-matchy.

My recycled piece?  It is actually the canvas...it had a different project on it that I made a while back and well, never posted it because I really didn't like the end product so I pulled everything off and started off with a blank canvas:)

Love that sweet silhouette...that's what I typically look like every evening after work...the hair goes up into a pony!

Why don't you play along with us?  You have until Sunday October 30, 11.59 pm EST to LINK  UP!
