Holiday Extravaganza: Challenge #7 – Get Messy

Welcome to the rukristin papercrafts inaugural Holiday Extravaganza Blog Party.
Visit the main page for challenges, games, & inspiration from crafters around the world.

Challenge #7

Get Messy

Sometimes we need a challenge to get us out of our comfort zone. My style is generally clean but quirky — but sometimes I love to break out the paints, the mists, the modeling paste and just go to town.

For this challenge: Pull out the messy stuff. Use paint, mists, or any messy art products on your next project.
