LLWWC45: Try Something New!

This week Kim has challenged us all to try something new. I didn't have anything on the back burner I'd been dying to try (and having been out of the blogosphere for the past 3+ weeks hasn't helped that) so I headed to the techniques section of SCS and found this fun one - Faux Sea Glass. I didn't have the exact supplies on hand, so I improvised a bit, but I'm quite happy with the result! Be sure to head over to the LaLa Land blog to see all of this week's amazing creations...and since Kim used Banjo Maya that will be on sale this week for 20% off!!
I used the ever adorable Beach LaLa this week, along with an old SFYTT from Jen DelMuro and some tropical dp from Stampin' Up! The faux sea glass tag is made from an old GinaK plastic tag that I inked up with some craft spots, then covered in UTE. After adding a few layers of UTE I still had some dimpling, so I didn't do the stream of water from the tutorial...I just went with it! I tied some linen thread through the hole and added the stamped sentiment to finish it off.
I hope you'll come play along with us this week. You could win a gift certificate to the boutique if you play along using La-La Land stamps...what a great incentive to play!
