Anything Goes this August - Cassandra

Let's raise the roof for these fun challenges. 

I love watching all of you create in your own amazing styles, and then having you participate and share them here brings us a lot of joy.

We dare you to join us in the fun!



I had so much fun with this month's Anything Goes Dare that I made not one but two projects that coordinate. I took two dollar store items and transformed them into these with a little EC flare!

For the textured journal background, I used grit paste, Kimilese script stamp, and distress ink. On the panel, a cool three way stamping technique to get the raised resist chrysanthemum image to allow it to be watercoloured with ease. While I had started off with making the journal cover, I couldn't resist making a pencil to go with it.

It is amazing what embossing powder will transform! I "coloured" the pencil with Turquoise Shimmer emboss powder to match the blue of the chrysanthemum. It has been a long time since I used shrink plastic but it was the perfect way to accessorize it and a blast to create with it. Three stamped images, an anchor charm, and a turtle brad to hold it together plus some gemstones and it became one kicked up pencil!

For a more detailed description on how to make these projects, be sure to visit my blog here. Let your imagination go where it may and come play with this month's dare.

One of our own has now been evacuated along with so many others.
I am hoping you will take a minute and if you are able, please donate by clicking this link to the Red Cross to help with the BC Wildfires. These fires are destroying homes, livelihoods and finances for so many. Even members of our creative family have been evacuated or are still in danger of evacuation. Once we see the fires end and lives can begin to rebuild, will be doing giveaways and sponsorships to help people start healing by offering gifts of hope and love through creative healing.
