* Path of Positivity: Teddy Ballerina


Happy Monday!
I hope you are staying safe and well.

Today is the midway point of the August Path of Positivity challenge.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Exploring the Fantastical.

Prizes this month include:
  • $10 AU gift certificate from Beccy's Place our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
Please remember in order to be eligible for the prizes your project must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way. 

So, this month we want you to reach deep into your unrestrained imagination. 
Create a project that touches on the world of fantasy, wonder, magic or whimsy.
I used a free image called Ballerina Bear from our lovely sponsor, Beccy's Place. Here is the card I made:

Isn't she the cutest bear! I love her ballerina dress, her ballet shoes and her head dress! My fascination with dressed animals has once more lead me to chose this fantasy image! Beccy very generously has a whole range of free images on her website  - you should head over there to check them out. She also has a list of special card fold tutorials which she shares for free!
I coloured Ballerina Bear with my Copic markers and popped her on foam tape onto a brayered paint background. I added some Picked Raspberry background stamping and a border stamp from Inkylicious. Some torn washi tape grounds my bear. The lovely sentiment was stamped too.

Many thanks to Beccy's Place, this month's guest sponsor,

and to Scribbles Designs as the ongoing sponsor of the challenge

We would love to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!
