Show Us Your Stuff August Challenge

Can you believe it is August already? It will be Christmas before we know it. At least it is the last month of winter - yay to that.
This month at Show Us Your Stuff, we have a very interesting challenge.. Here it is:
So, it's time to get out those ugly papers in your stash and do something special with them. don't for get your handmade item.
For my layout, I chose a photo of a friends grand-daughter, she lights up any ugly paper, lol. I found some papers from an American Crafts pack, which I really didn't like very much, especially the green one. So with paper on my cardstock, I covered them all with gesso - great way to tone down and cover over things you don't like. I then used some modelling paste and a stencil which I applied over the gesso. 
The handmade item I have used on my layout, is a Charms Creations heavenly hessian heart
Don't be afraid of this challenge, embrace it. 
Watch me grow
