Lawnscaping Challenge: Try a NEW technique sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Hello there! Laurel here and I welcome you to another Lawnscaping challenge! This week's challenge is all about trying something new! Now don't be scared. It can be something simple or as advanced as you like. What I mean by new is a technique that you have seen but haven't tried yet! Some of the new techniques the designers here tried are: bokeh background, white/white, coloring on glitter, no line watercoloring, gelatos.... See? Some of the designers tried a new product and that's the same thing as trying a new technique! Because you've got to use the product, right??!? See? This can be so much fun!

We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn! Those folks just rock and they are sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice! So many stamp to choose from, I know. It's tough. We just heart them! Thank you Kelly Marie and gang for sponsoring us! YOU ROCK!

Before I get to the design team projects, please join me in welcoming back our May guest designer, Sheri Gilson of Paper Crafty's Creations! Her technique was to create a project with white on white die cuts with a pop of color! How cute is this!  And love how she created the "rope" on the anchor! Thanks so much for joining us this month Sheri!

And now.... For some DT Inspiration for you! If you click on the name under the image, you will be taken to the individual blogs with all of the juicy details on the projects!
