Last Day of March Previews.....

It's our last day of previews for the March "Shannon's Sentiments" release!!! Today we're featuring "RE-cycle" and "Easter Time".

The full sets with a blog hop will be starting at 6am EST on Mar. 15th at the "Shannon's Sentiments" blog. We will also be hosting a chat at our CDAC group page at 8pm EST on the 15th as well.

There are unique giveaways this month that I promise you won't want to miss out on. We also have a guest designer challenge going on that you should all participate in.

My first project is a mixed media project. I've seen these canvas art pieces floating around the web and thought "Hey, I can do that!!!! I love making a big mess in my studio." And so off to Michael's I went in search of some canvases, paint, and Mod-Podge. I already had the design in mind using images from the "Easter Time" set, so once I get all the images printed out I got down to work. I started with blue printed paper on top, then blue paint over that, then the white paint on the side. Each I took some off with tissue paper or paper towel. Then I applied the basket and eggs, sun (created from designer paper), the quotes and the doves. I added the grass which I printed off on green designer paper, added various green paints to it, and then the flowers on top. I finished it by adding doodles here and there.

I created this card using the bare tree from the "RE-cycle" set, along with the "Go Green" sentiment. I printed the tree on white cardstock and created the background using the direct-to-paper technique with Distress Inks.

More inspiration from our design team to get your creative juices flowing for this challenge.
