LESSology Wall Art

Hi Everyone welcome to another fun challenge at LESSology. This week our challenge is to create some kind of wall art. Our sponsor this week is Tradefish Designs.

TradeFish Designs (aka “TFD”) was established by Cecilia Stephens in April 2011 in Raleigh, North Carolina. TFD was created because she felt there was a need for stamps sets crafters could use in cards, scrapbook pages and other crafty projects for the boys and men in our lives. TFD is devoted to creating stamps with masculine themes, imagery and sentiments. You can use the images and sentiments for feminine cards or projects too, but the focus in the design work for TFD stamp sets is really about the boys.
 Visit TradeFish Designs to learn more and check out the latest designs!

The amazing prize for Challenge #4 is a $20 Gift Certificate to the Tradefish Designs store. 

I won the set I use from Kate at Scrappers Creative Corner.  The set is call "Outta this World." This is a fun set!

                             I started with...




a $1.50 board from St. Vinnie's.
I used every stamp in the set and this is what I ended up with this.

I even made some charms with Shrinky Dinks shrinkable plastic.

This was really a fun project. I hope you will join us and share a project you create for your wall.
Thank you Cecilia for the generous prize.

Here is the video of what I did to create my "Outta this World" message board.



Thanks for stopping,

Oh how fun is this? Love that you alter so many great items...
I use the Wendy Vecchi plastic-it doesn't shrink but melts and becomes pliable.
