    CAS Mix Up January Challenge

    Welcome to a new challenge!
    Check out the Top Picks from December's Emboss Resist challenge HERE.


    If you have never done the Bokeh Technique be sure and check out the helpful
    Bokeh videos below.  All the DT and GD cards are so inspiring too.
     The visual effect of Bokeh is so creative and unique.

    bo·keh bōˈkā 
    noun
    noun bokeh
    1. the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.
    2.  As defined by Google Dictionary 

    I would like to thank Loll and Bonnie for the opportunity to be a Design Team member on
    CAS Mix Up for the last 2 1/2 years.  I loved learning so many new mixed media techniques,
    while keeping my cards CAS!  

    I am not going far, my friends.  I have been invited by Loll to join her new CAS Stencil Card Challenge
    Design Team, so I will still be a part of the friendly, creative CASette Family!
    I will also still be playing in the Fabulous CAS Mix Up Challenge every chance I get.

    Happy Creative New Year to all....
