I've copied & pasted my blog post for you from over at LESSOLOGY. Remember! You can do any sort of project, as long as you have at least ONE recycled/upcycled item - in this case I've used a box......BEAUTIFUL SCENERY is the challenge - so you need to create a scene....pop your thinking cap on & have a 'go' at this one!!!!!
Hi there! I really had fun with this challenge....scenery is something I'm not good at - cos despite being a paper-crafter, I am by NO stretch of the imagination an artist. So, I let the papers do the work for me!
 Some old October Afternoon papers already had a scene on them! So I did a bit of fussy cutting. Luckily, I'd just been given a few of these boxes from my BFF who came to visit & obv knows me well;)
 I added some background pp from the same collection, a bit of stencil work & also some Gelatos to add some depth for my house to 'sit' on its hill!
Then simply added the bits & bobs. It's a box for my step grandson. I think he'll like it!
 I added a touch of blue, with some distress ink & a water pen, for sky, above the 'hill', too:)
 And coated the whole top with a gloss lacquer to protect it.
 Oh, and a bit of washi around the edges:)
I hope you have as much fun with this challenge as I did:):)
Just look at the YUMMY prize from STUDIO CALICO up for grabs:
