X Y Z.....

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.

With our alphabet challenges we usually focus on just one letter – this week we’re giving you three! X, Y, and/or Z. I suppose you could also be inspired by the end (as this is the end of the alphabet), zoo animals, yellow, or yarn. What else? Well that’s for you to decide and share with us this week!

This week, I decided to put some of those always leftover consonants to use...
I simply grabbed all of those forgotten x, y, and z's....
Added some white to unify them all, then played with a bit of watercolor!
Then, with just some simply layering, journaling, and a few embellishments...
Ta Da!
I just love how a seemingly "leftover" supply can create such visual interest!

And, now it's your turn!

Go get crafty and and link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from
