"Beautiful Darkness"

WELCOME EVERYONE TO THE SMEARED & SMUDGED JANUARY MEMBER BLOG HOP! The theme this month is MESH IT! We were to interpret this how you'd like. We could use mesh, mesh images together, have a mesh texture...etc. We were to use our imagination and have fun with it. Also, don't forget the S&S Rule that it has to be stamped somewhere (digi stamps are fine).  I hope that you have been inspired so far! You should have come from the ever Creative Celina's Blog... if not; be sure to start from the beginning at the ever Talented Tori's Blog, so that you don't miss any of the awesome artwork along the way! 

Oh I almost forgot... I will be entering this Fat Book Page into the challenge over at Smudgy Antics. The challenge is to go Green by Recycling, I have recycled the netting... it used to be a shower puff that fell apart! Before you go... EEEEEWWWWW... I did run it through the washing machine and let it air dry before using a piece on this creation! (Honest... Cross My Black Heart)! So when you have a chance, pop on over to the Smudgy Antics Challenge Blog and link up your recycled creation, you have until Sunday, January 15, 2012 at 2am CST. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
