Simon Says Monday: Gentleman Challenge


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week the challenge is


It's time to think of the men in our lives and create something for them, maybe a masculine canvas to hang in their den, or a notebook for their desk, whatever you create we will be looking forward to seeing it!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I thought a Gentleman might need a trinket box for his bits and bobs ;-)

I used a new Tim Holtz Paper Mosaic Kit to decorate the lid of this cardboard box. I have had this box in my cupboard for years (thanks Alison) just waiting to be used! Stared by painting the box with White Gesso and painting with Antique Linen Paint. I then used scraps from a Lost and Found Paper Pack to decorate the top.

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting


If you use instagram add  #sssmchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!

You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in 

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x

What an absolutely clever project! I really like the mosaic vibe, yet you've taken it up a notch with the patterns you used for the mosaic pieces. Very cool!
