And my last share today is for a Mixed Media canvas I created for Show Us Your Stuff challenge blog.
The metal elements on my piece include the little keys, the butterfly in the top left corner and the little metal flower to the bottom left of the title.
My home made elements are the small green flowers and then I also made the three little gauze ‘flowers’ for this piece.
And next up is one I did for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. Their November challenge is:
“Use words of thanks – Thank You, Gratitude, Grateful, Thanks as a title or in your journaling”
I used the word ‘grateful’ in my title; it is something I want my child to do every single day!
Here is my layout for this challenge:
Now I’d like to share with you, the SPLO I did for Challenge Yourself – challenge no 47.
Here is my piece. I used my mist in two ways – I sprayed some onto my craft mat, diluted it with a little water mist and then I swiped my tag, pennant and corrugated board into it. Secondly, I created splatters around on my background piece. I used ink to create the grid-design behind my layered piece.
I LOVED the “Christmassy” colour palette this month over at Words & Paintery :
For this SPLO, I couldn’t resist using this image taken of my crazy cat, who’d run up the middle of my Christmas tree. She does it each year without fail and it NEVER stops being funny!
And now for another new challenge site entry! This time I played around with the current challenge over at Scrap Our Stash :
The items I used on my LO that make up the word Thanks are: T – twine, teal, ticket; H – Hessian; A – Ampersand; N – Navy highlights, numbers (brown background paper contains embossed numbers); K – kraft paper and S – sticker sheets
Here is what I created for this challenge:
My third share for today is another ‘new’ one that I’ve not taken part in before!
I love this mood board from The Creative Studio – and how could I resist taking part?
Although it’s heading towards Summer here in South Africa, I do still love Winter and when I saw this mood board, I knew in an instant, what photograph I was going to scrap for this SPLO I created.
Next up, is an SPLO I did for 123 Challenge Blog. This is the first time I’m taking part in their challenges – and I must say, I do enjoy their approach to their challenges. You certainly do get pushed out of your comfort zone; which I feel is a great thing – nothing worse than being stuck in a rut!
Here is their challenge for November:
As you can see from my piece below, I left the sketch pretty much as is (i.e., no rotation, etc.)
I used the word ‘adventure’ in my title and the word awesome is for my daughter – who is, as far as I am concerned, AWESOME! The adventure to which I am referring to in my title is not a literal one… it’s more an adventure I find myself in, in raising her – she is so precocious, tween, affectionate, mind-blowingly intelligent, amazing, generous and kind. It is AWESOME watching this kid grow!
Hi there scrappy friends!
I have completed a number of projects for some challenges over the past few days. Not sure if I will be able to share all of them with you in one go today!
First up, is the latest mood board and sketch over at Mixed Media and Art .
I’m an absolute sucker for texture, so fell head over heels in love with this challenge. Just look at those colours too! Along with an easy sketch to interpret, this makes for an amazing challenge. And here is what I did:
Hello my fellow artists and friends,
Today I want to share how I solved Case 242 over at CSI. I loved this palette – truly. I am a huge fan of earthy, neutral colours.
Here is what I did:
Scheme : all there
Evidence : text pattern, textured paper, leaves & flowers, tag, tape measure, fussy cutting
Testimony : paperclipping prompt – real success in life
We all have a different view on what the real success in life is. Mine is to live and love fully. I realise how very blessed I am to have had two great, great loves – both so very different, but both great nonetheless. Life IS very short and without warning, it can change; you don’t want to live with regrets. So I choose to live each day to the absolute full. I choose to LOVE with great intensity. So far, it is proving to be all kinds of wonderful. I strongly recommend it.
Here are the details of the challenge:
One of the very first challenge sites that I ever entered into, was for CSI: Color Stories Inspiration. Their approach to the challenges are so unique, which is why I love serving on this Design Team so very much.
They are currently running a DT call – and we would love it if you would apply! Head on over to the link – here – for more information.
