J is for Junk...

Sunday, July 27, 2014


This week we are showcasing the letter "J" for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. My husband and I  moved recently and the word, "Junk" seemed appropriate. (ahem...) So I created a banner to proudly proclaim my treasures!


The pennants were premade chipboard from Jenni Bowlin. (Jenni...another "J" word!) I was really pleased with the way the background evolved. After dabbing some distress ink and stamping with metallic distress ink, I used a whitewash of Picket Fence stain and an unexpected resist occurred from the metallic.
I've proudly labeled my junk!



What comes to your mind when you think of the letter, "J"? Jewel-tones? Journals? Juxtaposed images? Join us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp.  We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.
