Hey Friends! Its a chilly start to Tuesday around here and quite windy - all is quiet on the home front though so can't complain at all. Looking forward to handling some business for the kennel this morning and then having a scrappy afternoon - what are you up to today??
If you're looking for inspiration or a sketch to get you kick started head on over to Skissedilla where the new weekly sketch is posted.
|Lots of bits-n-pieces here layered over a stenciled pattern made with colored gesso - I'm really diggin' the new Funky Chevron stencil from The Crafter's Workshop!! Have you gotten any of the new CHA releases from them?|
I struggled a ton creating this page - its like the mojo went flying entirely out the window right along with all my energy!! In fact this was the fourth attempt - I mean really??! What are your wonderful tips and tricks when the creative juices fly right out the coop? I tried all my tricks and nuttin' was working. :o/
|This part of the title was actually connected to the words 'at' and 'the' from the photo above - I cut them apart, doodled, blinged, and adhered - love how easy ScrapFX makes titlework!!!|
My inspiration to get going (for the fourth time) came from a delightfully sweet package I received from a friend for winning a BINGO game at MSW during the Olympics - Joan was beyond generous with the goodies she sent and I can't wait to use more of them - what I couldn't believe is she included an older line of Crate Paper I'd always wanted but never got - I was beyond giddy at the sight of the fun bold patterns! Thanks again Joan!!
|Another pile of stuff here to look st LOL - I used an envelope from my goodie package to hold some ScrapFX tags layered up and held together with a brad - my journaling is there along with the deets of where we were etc. - the fussy cut flowers each have glitter around the inner ring - in this shot you can faintly see the shimmer - hate that its so hard to get stuff like that to show up in photos.|
I was also inspired by my fellow DT member at ScrapFX, Kristine, to create my own leaf stamp - mine is in no way as cool as hers looks (check out her blog to see it in action) but I do like it. =)
Not sure I'm sold on this page as a whole - there are plenty of elements I like - just not sure everything together makes me entirely happy. I can't pinpoint what it is either - I'm thinking maybe its too much yellow?? A lack of doodling around the photo mats, maybe shouldn't have gone with yellow photo mats?? Doh! LOL
I actually stayed pretty true to the sketch this week - I really liked the way the four photos were stacked and placed for this - definitely going to try that look again!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I appreciate you taking the time to visit - take care!!
