I've been able to do heaps of scrapping over the past two days! Just love love love my challenge blogs!! I would have to say entering or designing for these blogs would definitely be the most single factor in progressing in this artform. Each challenge blog comes with its own set of various criteria offering an opportunity to give something new (even though higly experimental at times)......a go! I wasnt going to enter CREATIVE TYPE this time.....'ugh numbers' I thought (throwing hands in the air)....'just not into numbers' (twisting mouth sideways)......so crossed it off my list of things to do. Then last night I gave myself a little 'kick' and put it back ON the list and faced it!!!! I'm sooo delighted with the outcome!!!
I stuck some older numbers I've had forever on the left side of the LO, painted over with cream and then layered and squished tissue paper over the top(edited - this is a large piece of fragile gift-wrapping paper, (not toilet paper lol), painted again and rubbed some pale green ink over the top of the numbers for some definition........did I already say how much I love paint and layering!! Here's dd in her fav spot!!! I couldnt count how many books she reads and re-reads a week!! She has also written her own novels at home!
'One day.....' she thinks!
CREATIVE TYPE #17
BASB #13 My goodness......this was ANOTHER challenge I crossed of my list and another little 'kick' I had to give myself.........yeah - did that same thing as with the numbers......'punches-I have one, but.......' so without even giving myself any reason or justification as to why I shouldnt give it a go - I crossed it off the list! I DO need to remind myself of the stash that needs using including tools - and this little creative outlet was soooo much fun!!!!! Look what I ended up doing with my water threader punch (is that what its called??) Anyway I had the most perfect photo and this LO just fell together! Big thank you to the DT of BASB cos, I look at this punch and my circle punches a little differently now! 31ST MAY 09 PHOTO The leak in our water meter has been fixed and I couldnt bear to not take a photo of the pump letting water just flow down our street. I'm sure the council workers think I'm 'star-ange'!!!! teehee! Great pic though hey!!!
