Be Silly wall hanging

Hi everyone! Happy Friday… doing the *happy dance*… Fridays are my most favorite day of the week! And today starts a new challenge over at Polkadoodles! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Wk 7 – Anything Goes! I created a fun ‘Be Silly’ wall hanging that’s hanging in my studio to remind me that I don’t have to be serious all the time! ;) This is my last post for Polkadoodles. I’ve made the difficult decision to step down because of too many obligations right now. I’d like to thank Jan and the gang for having me along for the past several months – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself!


I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that even though all Polkadoodles challenges are ‘anything goes’, our design teams are challenged each week with a specific theme. This week it’s “Recycle” so I recycled the thick cardboard backing from a package of cardstock to use as the base for my wall hanging. All of the elements (image, papers, sentiment, bow and flowers) are from the amazing Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle. Be sure to check it out… you will NOT be disappointed! :)


I colored the fairy image with a new set of alcohol markers that I recently purchased (and still adding colors as they become available), and used dies from several of my favorite sets to cut a background panel, the focal image and the sentiment. I also used some fabric ribbon, flat back pearls and flower brads from my stash. This was so much fun putting together!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. So, so beautiful! I love the lay-out and colors you used. So blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and would like to invite you again to link with us at the new challenge that started today. Leaving you with God’s Word in 1 John 2:15-17 which says, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” Have a blessed and wonderful week.
