August Mid Month Reveal!

Have you pulled out your UGLY papers yet? 
This months challenge has been set by DT member Anita, and she would like you to dig to the very bottom of your patterned paper stash, and pull out those UGLY papers! That's right, use those UGLY papers to make beautiful art! :) 

Don't forget to also include your handmade items! :)

 Please remember everybody has different opinions, so what you see as ugly, others may see as beautiful, so please play nice! :)

This months sponsor is none other then our challenge designer, Anita, with her awesome Flutterby Designs store!
You can find the Flutterby Designs store and all Anita's awesome embellishments here:

Here are our DT ugly paper examples! :)

"Combined two ugly papers for the ugly paper challenge"
Handmade items by Charms Creations and Rainbow Splendour

"The green and pink patterned papers were particularly disturbing for me, along with the scalloped paper, so I white washed over them with gesso, and stencilled some texture paste on."
Handmade item is a Charms Creations hessian heavenly heart.

Handmade items: pineapple fusion white border, white bird & white leaf branch from The Resin Rainbow; pin from Rainbow Splendour; handmade felt flower.

Handmade items - hessian heart; resin butterfly, resin doily, hand poured & coloured flowers;
