SDC177: New Year's Resolution


Claudine Criner is our hostess for our first challenge in the New Year over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge:

Most of us always create a New Year's Resolution and the beginning of the New Year.  For 2015 try your hand at making something with your New Year's Resolution in mind.

I love coloring this sunflower, and you can't see it in this photo but I've added some dimension to it by cutting out the petals and flower center and putting dimensionals under it.  I've also added some crystal lacquer to the petals, stems and over the sequins (which I wish I hadn't done).

Growing your dreams is always something to look forward to year after year.  My husband and I talk about several things we'd like to do besides the standard "losing weight, being more healthy"-so hoping this is the year for us to do a few of those things.


I've used the RetroSketches #147 for this creation as well.


Hope you will join us over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge this week!
