WW1 July Challenge

It's the first time I've played along with the WW1 challenge blog and loved the criteria!
And the first time for a long time, I've had a minute just to 'scrap' for me.
We've been so flat out here, between moving studios and getting our house ready to sell (what a marathon that was!)  and it sold in 5 days!  Now just a little piece before the storm! (the move!)

THis is me...  along with the criteria - white, polkadots and tape


Anyhows... hope to be back in blogland soon, I feel like I've dropped the ball a bit
Hope you are all having a fun Sunday afternoon!

Let's Get Shabby #37

Its the most fabulous Inspiration Arty Picture to interpret...
at 'Let's Get Shabby'

You can be inspired by it in any way!

We want to see your entries uploaded in the comments section (big smile)

Here's what I created...
I was inspired by the paint brushes- the doing of art, so used a photo of the privately owned art room where I spend every Wednesday morning for the past decade or so.
It's the most inspiring place - I love just being there among the most wonderful friends.  We chatter, discuss, laugh, banter, be in awe, and have fabulous morning teas (very big smile) made by our art teacher.  Who wouldnt want to be there!!!

Scrap Therapy July Room Challenge

This month's inspiration at SCRAP THERAPY for the July Room Challenge is this Master Bedroom:wink:

Your challenge is to be inspired by the inspiration picture and scrap it! You can be inspired by anything in or about the picture
Show your scrapping interpretation, creativy and relevance to the picture.
Be inspired by the colour and/or design; use specific elements or shapes if it takes your fancy, or even use it as a sketch for example!

Here's my interpretation using the gorgeous Authentique brand!

Pretty much I've kept to the colours....
I've used Authentic Foundations bi-fold paper ( grey background and the yellow torn strips under the photo)I've stamped over the torn paper with this fabulous Chicken wire stamp - Bird Brains.

I've created a 'line' of flowers to represent the flowers on the wall in the bedroom....
One of the most inexpensive what to 'do' flowers is to cut them out of pattern paper! I've used Authentic Blissful 'Happiness' Paper for this

The numbered flat paper trim down vertically on the left side of the LO is cut from 12x12 full of numbered kind of trim's such as ruler lengths you can cut off etc - you can find it here

Dont you just LOVE this little bird and branch!!! You can find the Tim Holtz die here

Fancy Pants bauble Trim - the brown has sold out... but here's the blue one (and see where I've cut off some of the balls to use as embellies - thats fun...will do more of that!!!)
Little brown letters
Journal Sticker

There is also a wonderful SKETCH Challenge
