This month’s 5 Item Challenge is a Special Hoilday Edition. We asked our design team to create a holiday or winter theamed project that uses gold or silver and what they created is utter magic!
Each month we will challenge our Design team to create a project using five specific items. Such an open-ended challenge means that there is such a wide variety in what is created.
This month the 5 items to use were 1. silver or gold 2. two differnt stencils 3. stitches 4. two snowflakes 5. white beads
Hi loves! In December, my desk turns into a festive studio. I really like to create Christmas projects, give them to my loved ones and decorate my home. Even if it’s not exactly your style (that’s how it is with me), surely each of you will be able to make such simple decorations as, for example, this star. Thanks to the beautiful Prima flowers, everything looks wonderful, of course, do not forget about a lot of glitter and sparkle! -Kasia

I just love Challenges they always push me to try something new either a new color combo or even a new product. This month’s challenge was a lovely wintery mix and while you may not be able to see all my products they are truly layered into this sweet winter Mixed Media Tag. I hope you like it! -Lanette

“I love winter and this challenge was like made for me. I wanted to create a frosty winter wonderland. I used Metallique Acrylic Paints ‘Ice Queen’, ‘Silver Spoon’ and ‘White Pearl’ to create a blue-silver color scheme. At this time of year in Finland, the landscape is very much the same as the shades of my work. I love the colors of winter, they are so calm and relaxing. As if nature were asleep. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays. –

Hi there, thanks so much for stopping by.
Today I have a layout to share with you that I created for a
“5 item DT challenge”.
I have used this beautiful photo of the newest edition to our family, our newest baby granddaughter.
She is sooo BEAUTIFUL.
The 5 item challenge set for us this month was to…
Do a Christmas or winter themed project
#1 Silver or Gold
#2. 2 Different stencils
#4. 2 Snow Flakes
#5. White Beads
I had so much fun with this challenge. I have added so many silvery sparkles everywhere although it is hard to see that in photos. I have also used some fabulous older Prima flowers I have been coveting in my stash & used our “Watercolor Confections” to alter some of my flowers too.
I hope I have given you some inspiration.
Cheers Di Garling
