January Blues For You...

Happy Monday! The team at the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog is back and ready to kick off 2014 with our first challenge of the year! Do you have the post holiday blues? Is it rainy and dreary where you live? Perhaps you’ve escaped to Blue Hawaii for a tropical fix! Or, perhaps you just love the color blue. Whether you take the word blue to mean a color or a state of mind – this week we’re all about all things blue.

Remember when I shared my tissue paper banner a few weeks back? Remember how I also warned you that you would be seeing plenty more tissue paper from me in the future? Well... here it is!

As soon as I started playing around with these tissue paper flowers, this fun little wintery canvas came together quite quickly!
With snow in the forecast today here in "HOTlanta," I am dreaming of flowers and lovely things soon to come in the garden...
 A good dose of mixed media play...
 Along with some die cuts, punched bits, and doodles...
And my wintery tissue paper flower canvas in complete!
Alrighty! Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see how you interpret this week's challenge!

And... don't forget to link-up with us!

Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp.com. How awesome is that?



Here is a complete supply list too :) (affiliate links used)

  4. Ashli...your piece is so fun! I love the blue splotches in your background. They are very "artsy". :) I also love the tissue flowers. That stark white against the color really looks awesome and I love the dimension they give. I also love the black lines you've sketched around them! Very clever piece. <3 Candy

  15. Honestly and truly, I think this may be my FAVORITE piece of yours ever! I know, I've said that before, but you keep making such dang cool stuff! I just adore the colors and the whimsicality of this piece. If I could blow this up into a piece of wallpaper, I'd totally coat a wall or two with it. I genuinely love this piece!
