I'm back.......

and it's time for another challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show.......
this week the challenge is to show you "Distressed/Torn Edges"
Now, it can't get any better than that......for sure!!

I chose to take my daughters High School Graduation Announcements and
make her a piece of Wall Art. This is what the original looked like.





She overcame SOOO many obstacles to become a 2011 Graduate 
I wanted to make her something to keep forever!!

This is what I created.........


I put Glossy Accents on the flourishes to give the Bazzill some body. 
I choose the Butterfly page from my Paper Stash as it is now time for her to spread her wings and fly.
I used a page from the dictionary with words like Happy, Happiness etc.


Do you see the distressed edges....created by using the Distrezz It All......love that little machine!!

The flowers were cut from Crinoline and colored with various combos of Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss. Scrunched and layered, accented with a Kaiser Pearl. Everything was adhered using the AMAZING MULTI PURPOSE CAN STICK MOST EVERYTHING FOREVER......Multi Medium.

SO.........whatcha gonna make?? I can't wait to see your creation over at
Simon Says Stamp and Show....
your creations puts you in the running to win
