Make Up Monday - 2/4/13

February we are stirring things up over at the Cookin' Up Creations forum.

We all use recipes. Some are passed down for generations, others are found on the internet and some are seen on our favorite cooking show.  

This month we are using recipes to create wonderful projects and challenges.  We have recipes to challenge you to create your own amazing projects.  A couple of scrapbook papers, a flower or two, perhaps a pinch of wood veneers. Who knows what you’ll find.

Join us over at the forum for all the delicious, creative recipes.

We start off with Focus Friday 2/1/13 Three Ingredients   By Tamara

Tamara asked us to use 3 ingredients to create our projects. They are simple but fantastic.
1. Use an inanimate object as your focus photo(s).
2. Use the color brown along with another color.
3. Make word strips for your journaling.

Here is her sample for this recipe.
