GPP Street Team Challenge 59

Oh how I love Michelle Ward's challenges!  I haven't been able to do the last couple because of time and even now I am just snucking in under the finish line!!  A great idea to do a Ta Da list for 2011.  A chance to look back and be surprised at all your accomplishments.


I have so loved the Strathmore online workshop 1 (with Traci Bautista) that I thought I would do something in that style so picked a background from one of the pages in my A4 size journal which was already painted with acrylics and watercolours and which had one or two light stencils on it.  Then I set to work with some oil pastels, some copic markers


some delicious Indian Ink and a Tippex white out pen and here we are.  Then for the accomplishments themselves I wrote in a red copic marker all round the images (I think I could keep adding to it actually as I keep remembering things even now!!)


A bit of a closer look


I had great fun again doing this.  Thanks so much for the inspiration Michelle!

Sheila - super fun page! Love the colors and all the action going on. I love hearing that you are still remembering additional accomplishments. That's the cool thing that happens once you start reflecting on the past year. Love the red lines of Ta-Da's. Bravo! Thanks for sharing with the team!

Hello there, just had to comment on your work. It's great and to include the tips given by Traci is such a good idea. I have been doing the course also and have really enjoyed it.
