CAS Mix Up August's Monthly Picks


It's been a fantastic month with lots of participation.
Many of you tried Stencil Monoprint for the first time --- awesome!
Thanks for joining us!

Our Top Pick for August
Pat (Colourful Creations)
Wonderful Distress Ink colours for Pat's beautifully Stenciled Monoprint background.
The background gave her creative card a wonderful flow.
How clever of Pat to use her Wink of Stella brush to watercolour her
fussy-cut flowers.  The all white background and die-cut framing
kept her beauty Clean and Simple.


Congratulations, Pat!
