Exceed the limits

Congratulations Country View Crafts Challenges on your Blogaversary! And to celebrate this month the theme is ‘Anything Goes’. Now I quite like having a monthly theme. Well, I say I quite like it, I do occasionally grumble to myself when I see the title and wonder if I can make anything that would fit! Then, once I’ve had a think I realise I love the theme and don’t want it to end! So, I tell you all that so you know how hard I find ‘Anything Goes’! So this month I have chosenmy own theme and to focus on my new favourite colour, Bougainvillea - it will feature in both projects!

I covered a small mdf board with Chalk paint and then added Carribean Sea with a hint of Bougainvillea. I then added some stamped images in the background before adding washi tape for my chap to stand on. The chap was cut out and painted and I added the large brackets (I love these!) and the Dylusions quote which seemed so appropriate after the day at work I’d had!!!

We can’t wait to see what you’ll make for our theme – don’t forget there’s a prize to be had!
