New Year's Eve Party @ OWSE

Some of us at OWSE stayed up to see the new year start!
We had challenges all night. It was lots of fun (& laughs)
First we followed a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers HERE

THEN Robyn gave us a whole list of commands that we had to use on something AND we only had 30 minutes! 
Commands: rhinestones, dots/circles, flourish, letters, stencils, paint, stripes, lace, the word ENJOY, distress, watercolor technique, angel and glitter
 It's hard to see the top of the box, but I covered with my vintage photo distress paint dabber.  Dried good with heat tool and then stenciled Tim Holtz alphabet with walnut distress stain, stenciled the "stripes" with another stencil. 
After stamping my angel onto white cardstock and cutting out, I distressed the edges with my scissors. I "watercolor" painted her using Tim Holtz distress pens and my water color pen-love the effect.  Her face was colored with Derwent colored pencils.
I added pearls (dots/circle) to the top of the flourish and rhinestones at the top of her.

Around 11:15PM the challenge was to make something that represents how we want to spend 2014.
AND we only had 30 minutes!!
With my new grandson being born just a few days ago-there's no question how I'll be enjoying my year!
I did a layout.  Did some stenciling on top of cream 12x12 cardstock. Layered several scrap pieces of designer paper.  Had some wooden flourishes and stickers that added that special touch.

It's been YEARS since I was awake for a new year and I really enjoyed spending my time with my crafting friends doing what I love!
I almost forgot-One of our challenges was to wear a funny hat!  Here's the picture of mine!

Thanks Robyn & gals from OWSE!

I pray your 2014 will be Happy & Prosperous.  Put God first and he'll take care of the rest!
