Feature Artist at Anything But Cute Challenge Blog

I am so excited and honoured to have been asked by the hugely talented designer Pamellia to be Feature Artist on her new Challenge Blog - Anything But Cute!  Pamellia and her team are all exceptionally talented and create the most wonderful mixed media projects.



The current challenge is hosted by the talented Cec (CW Card Creations) who chose the theme - Make it Masculine.  In Cec's own words - Make a mixed media card or other project for a fellow in your life.  It could be for Fathers Day, a birthday, an anniversary or just because you want him to know how special he is.


I was really inspired by Cec's challenge as, I don't know about you, but I find men really difficult to make for!  I decided to make something for my DH to use in his 'shed'. Here's a sneak peek of the first layer of my project... I used something a little different to give my 'bricks' a wonderfully aged appearance.


If you would like to see a step by step of my project for Anything But Cute I hope you will visit the blog HERE and if you have time, please leave a comment and support this wonderful new challenge blog.  Thanks again Pamellia for asking me to be Feature Artist!

As always, thanks for looking, I hope to see you again soon!  Hugs, Anne xxx
