CAS Mix Up January Challenge

Thank you to all who joined us in 2017 to make our challenge a creative success!
We are looking forward to seeing what you will create for the 
2018 CAS Mix Up Challenges.

We are starting out the New Year with a beautiful new artsy badge and banner designed by our very own..Loll Thompson!  

Here's this month's challenge hosted by Nancy.

Cling (Plastic) Wrap is the magic ingredient for creating interesting mixed media backgrounds using any wet medium: acrylics, watercolors, pigment powders, alcohol inks, dye inks, etc.  Your backgrounds can be used with die cuts, stamping, etc.  Remember,  must be CAS designs.

Any of these YouTube videos will get you inspired and ready to create.  Have fun!

Please follow the challenge rules:
    • Cards only
    • CAS design (clean and simple) - definition on sidebar
    • Include all three components listed on challenge badge
    • Include link to challenge in your entry post

  1. Thanks for a lovely new challenge and adore your new header design from that clever Loll. I am looking forward to giving this cling film technique a try and love all the beautiful work from the DT, such great inspiration. Unfortunately I have left comments on all bar Joanna's as for some reason it wouldn't let me leave a comment but will try again tomorrow as it is very late and my new year's resolution is to get more sleep and not craft half the I'm not sure how long I can keep it up though. x
