Be YOU! always Be you! Creative Carte Blanche!

 Hello everyone! 
Here we are doing our last challenge of 2016! 
Can you believe it? Where did the year go? 

I think we all LOVE music. 
Somehow it touches our souls, inspires us, makes us remember things.
It can pull emotions from us in the blink of an eye. 
I love that this months theme was to be inspired by lyrics...

I have a song that I have taught to, listened to over and over and find very thought provoking. 
I want to share it with you.

Colby Caillat's "TRY". 

It really made me stop and think the first time I heard it, and I went home that night and watched the video.  I watched it three times...the whole time thinking wow...what a powerful message. 
To me...it inspires me to Be who we are...embrace that, don't hide it. 
So here is my little piece of home decor that you could hang anywhere and remind yourself to 
Be You and SHINE! 
 I found a small hanging piece of home decor with the wire already attached.
It's wasn't my cup of tea, but I knew I could alter it.  Do you ever find stuff like that?
I find it at places like TJ Maxx, Goodwill, thrift shops, garage sales, etc.

I used Multi-Matte Medium to adhere the paper to the wood right over the existing art work .
I tore some scraps and cut out some roses and attached them using the same process.
I used some Thickers and sticker letters along with one of Heidi Swapp's gold words.
Simple and easy peasy!
Definitely you could do you own thing and use as a hostess gift or a message to someone who you want to inspire!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you will join in and share your work over on Creative Carte Blanche blog!  Have a great week! Till Next time!

  1. Ha, ha, yes I do that too but then put it away and forget to alter it.... Love what you have done with this, the papers are beautiful and the words are very uplifting! Anne xx
