Marsha Valk - Creative Jump Start... MY Lesson Creation!!

Howdy and HAPPY NEW YEAR...from Joi at the ranch!!

It has become a tradition for me to begin my year with:
The theme is "Mix, Match, Master". 

This is my 3rd year and I enjoy it because it forces me WAY out of my comfort zone.  I hope to post several projects over this month.  It will mostly just be pics of the project since I can't share much about the lessons themselves.  

This first lesson was from Marsha Valk. 

Let me assure you - mine looks nothing like hers. Hers was wonderful, of course!  Nevertheless here's my play along. 

Phase one, two and three!

And after more phases - finally....nearly done!


DecoArt Media Paint Products
Dare2BArtzy Totally Tracy Textures Stamps
Faber-Castell Pitt Pen
Dynasty Liner Brush


I added the words: Just Begin. 
That's what I tell myself when I have no clue how to start!
Thank you Marsha for challenging me!
Until tomorrow! j.

I love to see some of the "beginning". It appears to evolve into a landscape of sorts. I love it.

I think the idea of 'just begin' is excellent - and love the result. CJS is a great way to start the year huh :-)

Hey Joi - sorry it's been so long, and I'm happy to see you're kicking off 2017 with some fabulous creativity... what a great piece. Off to catch up with some more, but I hope the new year brings you health, happiness and wonderful creative adventures.
