2015 Will Be a Unique Year on the Path of Positivity

It's very difficult sometimes to maintain your own unique self in the sea of conformity, community and peer groups. As you can see from my new mixed media canvas, although one of several mustachio'd creatures, each is unique in their own lovable way. You, too, can and should be unique in your special way. After all, everyone else is taken, so why be them? LOL
I created my canvas for the Path of Positivity blog's newest and very first challenge of the New Year: Uniqueness! I got to play with a delightful image from Scribbles Design, featuring her signature characters (those of us who are Sandy's fans have come to know and love to create with).  This digi image is called "Movember Boys" and is available along with so many others at her store.
I started my canvas by covering it with leftover patterned papers, using Mod Podge (I was out of Matte Medium). Next came my Copic-colored image. After that, it was just a matter of the right embellishments. The alphas are leftover from a package of Basic Grey Dark Chocolate Chip card stock stickers.
There is plenty of inspiration on the Path of Positivity Challenge blog, including a project from their guest DT member, Mimi. Please check her out and give her a little love before you go!
Now, on to the challenge details:

  • A prize package worth $10 of digi images (digital papers not applicable) from Scribbles Designs, one of our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • A $10 gift certificate from Ike's Art, one of our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
There will also be:
  • One digital designer paper (made to order in a couple different ways) from D├ęcosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.
The Uniqueness Challenge runs from January 5 through February 1. As always crafters, have fun!
