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: http://elsieflannigan.blogspot.com/2007/02/just-for-fun.html)
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!
