Today there is a new challenge up at Punky Scraps. This month you are asked to create a layout with bright colors using a sketch by Marie (Mison). There is also a painting by Tracy Verdugo to inspire you. The painting is awesome and I really felt inspired by it. I hope you feel inspired too!
The painting inspired me to make “patterned dots”. I followed the sketch quite closely but I turned it to the left.
The journaling tells a cute story that I want to remember. One evening DD and I was sitting in our big but dark room talking about how good it would look if we painted it all white. I told her that maybe it was too expensive so we couldn’t afford it. She was thinking for a moment and then she said: “But, we can BUY some money”. :)
Well, as you can see on the photo I used, it’s all white by now . The photo is taken from the first floor and DD is standing upstairs in our scrapping room. The colorful heart from Glitz was perfect to use as a frame to accentuate all the white in the photo.
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!! Take care!
The inspiration piece at ARTastic this month is “Tea Time 2012” by Michael Duncan. It’s a hand cut 53 layer stencil! And of course the criteria is to use stencils/masks. Here’s my DT-layout:
I didn’t use 35 stencils... (And you don’t have to). I started with gesso on a template with cameras. Then I added some mist to make the cameras visible. I also used templates for doodling and to make different pattern with acrylic paint. Here are some close ups:
The photo shows DD on her way to the grocery store. Nowadays she is the one who writes the shopping list and she is SO proud.
Thanks for looking! The challenge is really fun (and easy for a lot of you) so I hope to see you playing along!!!
Here’s my DT layout for Kraft It Up!. This month the challenge is to create a vintage inspired layout – on Kraft Cardstock or Kraft Patterned Paper. I’m not a vintage scrapper. So, what to do? Copy someone else? No, I decided to create a layout in my usual style but to use photo, papers and embellishments that look old. Here’s my interpretation:
The photo shows DD and DH when they drink to toast. As you can see DD has learned to rise her glass, look the other person in his eyes, and nod slightly she drinks to toast. Quite cute when you’re four years old. :)
I did a lot of layering, added a lot of gesso and doodled some. Here’s some close ups:
When I have your attention I also want to tell you that ARTastic’s is going to celebrate (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day at May 4th. I recommend you to go here and have a look!! There will be a lot of prizes to win!
Thanks for looking! I hope you want to play along both at Kraft It Up! and at ARTastic!!! Have a nice weekend!
