Take the Challenge with Mou, January 2015 at Design Memory Craft Blog

Hi everyone, Mou here wishing you a very happy new year and welcoming you to the first Take The Challenge of 2015!

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
 
January: the first month of the year! A time of making new resolutions, fresh starts, starting again. It's the time of new beginnings. Your challenge this month is to create anything to celebrate new beginnings. 
 
Here's my take:
 
Here's a list of supplies I used:
Here are the steps:
 
Apply a coat of gesso to the unfinished wooden frame.

 
Rub Gelatos colors on the frame and blend with Glaze.
 

Lay stencil on frame and apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife.
 
Color the frame insert with Chalkboard paint. When dry, write your message on the chalkboard and put it back in the frame.
Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Friday, 1/16 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
The prizes for this challenge are: One Chalkboard Paint tub & one Mini Journal Board.
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 1/19 to see if YOU won!
Good luck to all!
