I recently received my newest DT project and I was super excited because earlier in the day I caught a glimpse of what I thought was mine to play with which was the new G45 Nutcracker paper line and some new shadow box. Anyway, naturally the wheels started turning and I was already envisioning what I was going to do, how I was going to distress everything and so on. Well the time came to take my box home but Can you guess what happened when I looked inside? NO G45! Yup, No Nutcracker Paper, No shadow box...instead I held in my hand the new Prima 6x6 mix media album and the newest Authentique Thanksgiving paper line. Now don't get me wrong I loved what I was given it just took me by surprise because I couldn't begin to imagine how I would combine them. As a matter of fact earlier that week I was on the Authentique website thinking to myself how fun it would be to play with that exact paper line and just last month I actually almost purchased the new Prima album so its very interesting how this all worked out.
It was kind of funny how my fist initial reaction at that moment was "What am I suppose to do with this?" I've never seen a mix media album that had a Thanksgiving theme. So I decided that somehow I was going to make this work and to tell you the truth I had a lot of fun. One of my biggest challenges is knowing as my friend Gwen puts it to "leave it alone and walk away!" Making this allowed me to practice this concept and I was amazed by how fast and easy it was for me to create so many pages in so little time and be done with my project. I am Thankful that these DT projects keep me on my toes creatively and before I go I want to challenge my readers to try this at home! Make something mix media/Thanksgiving and send me a link or post a photo of what you come up with because I would love to see it.
Here are a few of my favorite pages. As always thanks for sharing a part of your day with me and I hope you come back, oh' and bring your friends!
