Lawnscaping Challenge: ONE LAYER sponsored by Simon Says Stamp

Hello hello! Happy August and happy first Monday of the month! Today’s Lawnscaping challenge is fun and might be challenging for you all but I encourage you to play along any way. One layer might scare some of you away, but don’t let it. It can be as simple or as detailed as you want… I had a good time continuing to play along with the Faber Castell gelatos and I was in an artsy mood, so I did some creative masking with the gelatos and came up with this one layer:


I masked the circle area off before gelato coloring with the stencil…. Then I masked off the giraffe and created a sky with some gelatos and gesso.


We are sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp! The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to their online store!!! With CHA wrapping up, there will be a ton of new products to get your hands on!
