Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #7 & the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration 2014

It's time for another fun challenge over at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog. This month we're playing TIC-TAC-TOE!! Just make Tic-Tac-Toe in any direction and be sure to tell us in your description which three things you did in your project. If you can make it more than one way, be sure to tell us.

This is also my first project for the 12 Days of Holiday Projects. 

Here's my December Holiday Project. I made Tic-Tac-Toe by using a Star, Die (star), and Glitter.  For information on how I created this canvas, please see the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog, I have a detailed tutorial there.

This background was inspired by a canvas I saw Christy Tomlinson make on a video in one of her online classes. She is amazing, if you haven't taken one of her online classes yet, I would highly recommend that you do. And, she puts the older one on sale several times a year!!

This is so fun and really easy to do. I hope you will try something like this and let me know when you do so I can take a look!! I would love to see how you interpret this process. Keep reading for info of the  12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event. This is also my Day 1 Project.
