Here's to the New Year and a New FFF Challenge

Happy New Year guys! Have you seen the new website? Isn't it fabulous? TGF has truly outdone themselves, if you haven't yet be sure to check it out! Now, I don't know about you but crafting like crazy was high up on my list of resolutions for 2015. And what better way to welcome a new year than with sparkle bling and pizzas? No, no. Not pizza, I meant pizazz (although pizza doesn't sound to bad either!). Sparkle and bling go hand in hand with new year's cheer and the DT has plenty of that so here's my project for this week's Farm Fresh Friday, Holiday Glam

New Year Anya digi

If you've been a friend of the Farm for a while you probably recognize this adorable little lady as the free digi TGF gave their fans for New Years 2011. To make the year on her sash fit the current year I erased the numbers before printing off the digi and then wrote them in using a copic multiliner. Since i wasn't in the mood to make a card (and since my shaker card turned out no so fabulous) I decided to create a 3d paper rosette. I started by scoring two pieces of 8 1/2" x 11" black cardstock every inch folding accordion style using a bone folder for tight creases. Next  Take one accordion and adhere the ends of one side by folding it in half. Next I folded the accordion in half and attached the ends with hot glue since I needed it to be fairly sturdy. I then repeated the process on the second accordion and joined the two pieces together and fanning them out to create a circle. I did the same thing with two smaller sheets of DP from my stash to create a smaller rosette and secured the smaller to the larger with my hot glue gun. After than I used my spellbinders dies to cut out the scalloped circle and layered circle background and a stars embossing folder to add interest to the background Anya would rest on then adhering each with hot glue as well. used my awesome copic markers to color up Ms Anya along with my wink of stella clear brush pen and used a few foam dots to lift her off the background a bit. Finally I used Judikins Diamond glaze to adhere a few die cut stars around the edges and more hot glue to attach a string for hanging and this little cutie was ready to bling in the new year!
