CAS Mix Up January Challenge

Thank you to all who joined us in 2017 to make our challenge a creative success!
We are looking forward to seeing what you will create for the 
2018 CAS Mix Up Challenges.

We are starting out the New Year with a beautiful new artsy badge and banner designed by our very own..Loll Thompson!  

Here's this month's challenge hosted by Nancy.



Cling (Plastic) Wrap is the magic ingredient for creating interesting mixed media backgrounds using any wet medium: acrylics, watercolors, pigment powders, alcohol inks, dye inks, etc.  Your backgrounds can be used with die cuts, stamping, etc.  Remember,  must be CAS designs.

Any of these YouTube videos will get you inspired and ready to create.  Have fun!
