Ranger Designer Challenge!

I can finally share the project I did for the Ranger Designer Challenge — yay!

The challenge was to create a house using Claudine Hellmuth’s line of sticky-back canvas, acrylic paints, gel medium, and brushes.  We were provided with a paper mache rectangle to use as the foundation, plus two pieces of chipboard.  Everything had to be covered with the sticky-back canvas.  Our houses had a height limit of 18″ — mine is exactly 18″ — whew!

I decided to make a pagoda and use some of my favorite Hero Arts Asian stamps, plus the woodgrain!  (You know how I love woodgrain, ha!)

Here’s the pagoda hanging at the Ranger Booth — it’s easy to spot with the blue roofs

And here are some pictures that I took at home before I sent it in — never mailed a pagoda before, ha ha!

Gotta go and setup the computers at the booth — but first, where’s the coffee?
