A "Use Your Stash" Challenge...

Over at the Simply Create TOO blog this week it's a "Use Your Stash" Challenge and it has actually caused me to share this project I have been working on that used A LOT of my Stash... and resulted in an amazing piece for my Studio Wall!  

It started with a can of these super cute chipboard letters that were missing only the "M" and the "E"... Missing ME?  

Which lead me to remembering one of my most favorite Dr. Seuss sayings...  "Remember, BE who you ARE, those that mind DON'T Matter and those that MATTER Don't Mind." And with a little bit of red paint and some mod podge I made this lovely canvas in NO Time... But now I needed an equally great Frame....

Which caused me to finally USE an old frame I had bought at a secondhand store on holidays years AGO... which I doctored up  with Distress Inks and crackle paint and finished with some bronze inks.

Which caused me to finally break open my metal flowers that I have been SAVING for three years and this caused me to use up a whole WHACK of paper and cloth flowers and brads and buttons 

and beaded pins and even some wooden elements I found in a dollar store last summer!

So you can see how this project should have put a serious dent into my stash.... maybe if I made 10 or 12 more you would be able to SEE it... Grin.  I Challenge you to go a little crazy and use up some of your stash this week!

PS: I entered this project into the Simply Create Too Challenge #35 - Use Your Stash
