Lawnscaping Challenge #35 (Video Tutorial)

Before I jump in with this week's Lawnscaping Challenge,
I just wanted to give you guys a quick update.
My last post was actually scheduled since I was out of town,
so the last time I actually spoke with you all "in person"
was THIS POST where I shared the six piece card set I'd made
for the writer's conference I was heading to later that day.

Well, I'm back, obviously, ;o) and I had THE BEST time!
It was everything I'd hoped it would be and more.
I got to hang out with fabulous people,
stay in a gorgeous hotel with an incredible shower,
I learned so much about the craft that I am so passionate about,
I freaking WON third place in the Short Story contest
which was judged by industry professionals,
I placed sixth in the contest with the other short story I entered,
I won a "great-opening-lines" game played with my peers,
and most importantly, I came home with the self-confidence
that I've always been sorely lacking.

It was an amazing, amazing weekend, and I can't wait
for next year's conference!

So now, jumping right into the reason you're here:
Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #35!

Our challenge is generously sponsored by the
incredible Simon Says Stamp!

Since I've been home, I've been enjoying testing my wings,
trying new things, in particular, mixed-media.
I decided to alter a canvas for my design team project.

papers from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found collection.

And, I even found time to film a tutorial,
which is a part of our new Lawnscaping Fresh Cuts video series.
I hope you enjoy it!
Watch here or on YouTube.
