Special Guest Spotlight on

We are a bit early on this busy month with our Guest Designer Spotlight.
Take note that our Mini Challenge will be early as well. 
Come back on the 16th to check it out!

Our special guest designer this month has been wowing us with
her gorgeous creations the last few months, and we are absolutely
thrilled to have her join us to inspire you using our December challenge!
Let's learn a little more about Anastasia through her own words:

My name is Anastasia Tveritneva and my pseudo on YouTube is 'Asia Koliasina'. I'm from Russia (with love), but the last several years I have lived with my family in New Jersey, USA. I'm a book specialist by education, so paper and paint have always surrounded me. I've tried different styles and projects in scrapbooking, but lately I really like pop-up and layered designs as well as mixed media. There is so much passion and desire in me for mixed media! Making video tutorials for YouTube is one of my strengths. I have had a scrapbooking channel for more than 4 years and have gained a lot of experience during this time (and 12,000 subscribers).

Here is a reminder of our December Main Challenge
followed by Anastasia's gorgeous creative interpretation.

Read below as Anastasia describes in her own words how she was inspired
by our word and how she chose to incorporate our creative challenge:

I REJOICE in art! Nothing brings me greater joy than to create and share with you my process of creating. The word 'rejoice' can be found on my canvas.

The first idea that came to mind when I saw the December challenge board and the ANYTHING GOES creative challenge was to use a palette and my old brushes in my work. In the process of selecting materials, I found playing cards, and the famous Queen of hearts became the starting point in the colour combination of my work - yellow, red and black. Then came a I played with layers and textures to create my canvas, as I love to do. My imagination was as free as never before. 

Thank you MTW for the inspiration for such an amazing task!

Let's take a look at some details:

How brilliant is Anastasia's project!? 
She has once again outdone herself and has succeeded 
in creating a masterpiece of colour, uniqueness and pure artistic genius!

A big THANK YOU to Anastasia for joining us as our Special Guest!

We hope that you will take inspiration from Anastasia's creation
and that you will play along with our December Main Challenge.

You have until December 31 to link up!
