Hey snarky peeps, welcome back!
It's time for the new challenge at the
This time around, the letter du jour is
W for WTF!

Whether you interpret that to mean using 'WTF' on your project, or
making something that makes you think: WTF?!, we want to see it!

I went with the latter for my art journal spread:

Once again, a meme that I saw on the internet was my spark of inspiration.
Here's some pics on how I created this:
Brayer various pink, red, and orange paints.

Add same paints plus white through various stencils.

Doodle around stenciled images with various markers.

Stamp, fussy cut and glue the faces onto flowers with matte medium.

I found the perfect horse image in a NatGeo magazine.
(unbelievably, it only took looking through five of them to find it)
I drew the horn, colored with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut.
Stamped, colored and fussy cut the lady image, then glued them down
using matte medium. I swiped a green ink pad
along the edges.

Smudged a black pencil around the unicorn and lady.
I used some gelli print leftovers to die cut the grass border a gazillion times,
then glued them down with matte medium. Once it dried, I trimmed 
around the edges.

I used an alphabet stamp set to stamp the sentiment on typing paper,
fussy cut and glued down. Once dry I doodled around the words
with a couple markers.

One more time:

So now it's your turn to show us your WTF creations! We'd love
to see them in the SOSS gallery. Need more ideas? Simply check out
what my Sistahs, and our newest Queen and GD Granne, have
created for your viewing pleasure.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
