Challenge #2

Here are the rules:

Challenge #2 Details: You know I love sketches, I love using more than 1 photo regulary and I am a pattern paper collector – so join me in taking on a fairly open ended challenge with the requirements being:

1. Use an Elsie Flannagan sketch (file attached and there are 28 to choose from! Here’s the link:
2. Scrap a minimum of 3 pictures
3. Use at least 2 different pattern papers from at least 2 different collections/manufacturers

I chose sketch #4.
I painted a star on chipboard with black acrylic paint and then cut it out. I painted my title with a paintbrush and black and white paint and then I outlined it when after it dried. I also love to add little touches like the stars sewn with embroidery thread.

For our midweek bonus point challenge we had to:

Use the inspiration from one of these current scrapbook magazine covers (photos above) to create a project. Anything goes - a simple card, a 6x6 LO, a 12x12 or any alterable items - whatever you muse.

These covers are: Simple Scrapbooks July/August 2007 issue & Scrapbooks Etc. July 2007 issueBut be speedy! Projects due Thursday July 12th by 5pm EST (just a bit more than 24 hours). Post in the gallery under week 2 for the game and link back to here with cover that you found inspirational. Hope you are having fun and getting lots done!

Here is the Thank You card I came up with:

This was really fun. It made me realize that you can find inspiration even by looking at magazine covers! Thanks for looking!

Great job on this week's challenge, my Friend!!! Did you see my bonus this week with Samantha as a baby? She reminds me of a little cherub with her spiky hair and sweet full baby cheeks!

Have a great evening,
Amy :)
