Hello everyone and happy Thursday!!!! Laurel Beard here today bringing you our April Mix it Up Challenge!! I LOVE these challenges and am always exited to see what the month brings and this month, we are mixing it up with... Drumroll...Taylored Expressions!
Before I get on to the challenge and the amazing project inspiration, let's first congratulate the randomly selected participant from our last Pin-Sights Challenge. Remember, YOU could win a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store just by playing along.
And our randomly selected participant (courtesy of random.org) is: Jan Tinklenberg! Congratulations! Please email me at laurelbeard at me dot com to claim your prize!
A friendly recap: The Mix it Up Challenge is a challenge where we invite one manufacturer to contribute a design that combines Essentials by Ellen stamps/dies with their product to inspire our readers!
I am so excited to share a project by the talented Taylored Expressions Designer Jean Manis with you all. She is using both Essential By Ellen products and Taylored Expressions products! The supplies she used are linked towards the end of this post! Let's check out what Jean has in store for us today:
How marvelous! Colorful! It just makes me smile when I look at it! She create this die cut scene by combining the inlaid die technique with traditional die cuts. If you look closely, the sky, hills and bottom layer of the water are a single layer!
