CREATIVITY IS NOT IN THE FINDING... 41

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 30, 2014 @ 9:01 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is Anything Goes! I took advantage of the creative freedom of not having any rules and created a page in my art journal.


I stepped outside the perimeter of an A2 size card and created a page in my art journal.
I applied many layers of a variety of Ranger Distress Paints and randomly stamped fun flowers from the How Does Your Garden Grown stamp set.
I wanted additional design, so I randomly added stenciled designs using both the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Diamond Circles stencil:
and the Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil.
Thanks so much for visiting!  Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
