MSMR Challenge - January


Well, if you are looking at the calendar, today isn't the 1st Friday of the month.  But, this is the best we could do after celebrating the holidays.  

Today's the last MSMR Challenge for this group of designers.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing their work consider following them.  Thank you Holly, Joan, Therese, Sheila and Casey for sharing your design work with us!  
Here is the image the designers used for their inspiration this month;

First up, let's look at Sheila's take on this month's piece:

How stink'in shabbylicious is this!  Sheila used Linnie Blooms Mini File Folders as her base for this mini album.  I love all of the embellishments!  Thank you Sheila!

Next us is Joan with a gorgeous 12x12 layout, using a Linnie Blooms Canvas.  

Joan did an excellent job adding tons of texture and interest to her background.  The bicycle is an added touch that reminds you of the inspiration piece.  Thank you Joan!

Casey shows us just how simple you can use Linnie Blooms canvas pieces and the Mixed Stitch Greetings Stamp Set to make a card.  Thank you Casey!

Next, Holly has an early jump on Valentines Day with a Linnie Blooms Canvas Envelope and die cut hearts.


I'm sure Holly's husband will appreciate receiving this!  Thank you Holly!

Lastly, Therese used the Linnie Blooms Flourish Pocket to make a gift card holder.



By cutting the "flourish" off the pocket, Therese has given this pocket different look and the ability to put a larger embellishment on the front.  The Canvas Flourish Pockets are such a quick an easy way to present giftcards or money in this case!  Thank you Therese!

Now it's your turn!  Show us what type of mixed stitch media project you have made!

TGIF!  Time to check out what the Design Team did this month with the following inspiration piece:

First up is Joan's piece:



Joan created this banner using the Linnie Blooms Medium Canvas Pennants as her base.  I just love the spritzed music sheets she used!

Here is Holly's take on the December inspiration piece:


"Morrocan Christmas ornament gift. I was inspired by the colors and theme of my daughter's room. I used Pitt Pens , Gelatos, a stencil, 
Linnie Blooms Flourish Pocket and ribbon to create this little St Nick Gift for my daughter."

I'm sure her daughter will LOVE it!

Next up is Sheila and her take on the challenge:



Apparently Joan wasn't the only one that chose to use the Linnie Blooms Medium Canvas Pennants this month.  I think this piece from Sheila is simply dreamy!

Here is Casey's project this month:



I love the combination of canvas on wood!  

Last, but not least, here is Therese's project:




"I was drawn to the color and texture of the inspiration piece. I always enjoy working with the Linnie Blooms canvas 12x12. I used My Minds Eye paper and embellishments to bring it all together!"
Therese



Once again, I'm totally wowed by each designers take on this month's inspiration piece.  Now it's YOUR turn!  Pull out your stash, make something and show us your take on this month's inspiration piece!

November Mixed Stitch Media Revolution Challenge is HERE!


   


Well, the wait is over!  Here is the November Inspiration Image for this month's challenge:

To get you even more inspired, here is our Design Team with their take on this month's inspiration.  First up is Joan Borgelt's project which she created with a Linnie Blooms Canvas Bookmark and our Feather Stencil/Mask:


Here's Therese Hennessy's project:  
   
From Therese: "November's inspiration piece had a color combination that caught my attention first.  I also like how the flowers are clustered and wanted to incorporate the canvas flowers.  I painted the canvas flowers with paint dabbers.  The fence makes a nice base for the floral arrangement.  A cute card is a great way to say "Hello"!

Casey Heimos Project:
           



My motivation was for sure the inspiration colors. It reminded my immediately of fall, and thanksgiving and thanksgiving reminds me of what I should be thankful for. “a pocketful of blessing’ just came to me and I thought that would be a perfect way to incorporate the Linnie Blooms pocket. I used Tim Holtz distress markers and  water spritzer to get my color, and I used a Hero Arts stencil on the flap of the pocket.

Sheily Rumney's Project:
   


Holly Bray's Project:


Gelato pens, hand dyed ribbon, Heidi swap glimmer mist in gold, LB stamp set. Disney Princess Tiana and Marissa

Now show us your mixed stitched media projects:
