Mark's Finest Papers
Today I've made a 6" x 6" cork board/message board using Scenic Selections. I stamped in the tree first. It's bare. I stamped the smallest leaf from the set to fill it in! I couldn't believe how well the leaf worked on this. The fence was stamped next. I lined it up and moved it across the page. Next was the rocks. I finished with the tufts of grass and birds. I sponged in the sun, grass and sky. The sentiment is from North American Woods.

This is a side view. I wrote a tutorial on this project for SpeedyTV. You can find it HERE.


I made this mini cork Post-It Holder for today's challenge on SCS. I added a magnet to the back. I is now on my fridge!

Good Luck on the Hop!
