Getting Punky!

Hey there!  How's it goin'?  Fantabulous here - the sun is shining and its 40 degrees - ??! - yes you read that right - 40 degrees on a WI January day.  My DD went on a tubing field trip today and I can't think of any better weather.

So my title says I'm getting punky and that sure as heck is on.  I discovered a new challenge site called Punky Scraps via Michelle's blog and couldn't be more thrilled because the challenges there are right up my alley.  Lots of messy fun going on for reals!

While peeking around the site I saw this sketch:

Pretty sweet, huh?  With a little rotation of orientation this is what I came up with:
I swear this is prolly the quickest LO I've turned out eva'!  Everything fell into place the moment I knew what photos I wanted to use.  That never happens people!! 

Here's some deets for you to check out:

I loaded a stamp with paint for the border, attached the twine with a glue pen, and added some mist droplets.  The clouds were stenciled on using a mix of Pan Pastels.  My favorite part I must admit tho' is the title.  I really like how the placement turned out and since I wasn't sure about it in the 1st place that's a really good thing.
This is one of my favorite iPhone photos.  I'm sure I've already scrapped it and that's okay.  Here you can see a bit of the journaling I added to the banner strips and the texture added to the chipboard frame.  I did tat by using some Coarse Texture paste, let it dry, then dabbed on some Creative Inspirations paint.
Well that's all from me for today.  Make sure you check out the Punky Scraps blog, there are lots of other challenges posted besides the sketch and you've got until the 31st to play along.  Have fun!


  1. Fabulous layout! Love the "messy" look that you have going on here. The stamped border is a great idea, that I may use some day! :) There are lots of little things (embellishments, texture etc) to look at in your layout and that appeals to me.

  2. Wow! I can't believe that you turned this out quick, its so detailed! Loving your funky style!

  3. This is just amazing!! You rocked this sketch big time! Thanks for sharing.
