Club Anya Blog Hop



Welcome to my space on the Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop!

My sincerest apologies to Marie...but I am NEVER EVER EVER going to alter an Anya again...wait...maybe she likes that LOL. I got the idea for this little Anya tree angle in my head, but making it a reality just about put me in the grave! I have the utmost respect for those designers that are combining several Anyas into those amazing rockstars we've seen...crap...this was hard! LOL


Ok...so I started with Angel Anya, of course...but... her wings needed to be cut out to go on the back of the cone. When I did that, it left a big hole in her hair! Sigh... ok... I only seemed to have one Anya with long "uninterupted hair" lol...and that was Princess Anya... so I had to ink her up with a marker, only the parts around the crown and wand...and then I did my best to draw in the missing pieces. I also added some dimension by adding a layer with her bangs.

The whole project didn't turn out quite like I envisioned... I couldn't figure out how to decorate the tree! The cardinals are made with the soon-to-be-released bird punch from Stampin Up! I added a string of flowers and some bling to make it sparkle.

Next time I am sticking to an un-altered Anya LOL. Thanks for looking! See you at PCP for some chattin'!

Your next stop is: Kris (sorry I was so late updating with your info Kris!)
