The first is for this week's challenge. I also used Stacy Julian's color combo for the week and the Studio Calico challenge to scrap vacation photos using their collection Documentay. Love the map paper. I did a lot of stamping for this layout: see the hints of grid around the photo block? Also some Ali E stamps (this one and this one) on the journaling and the title comes from half of a Unity stamp. I left out the RV image.
The second is for a chance at August guest designer at Sketchy's. I was to use yellow and make my own embellishment. The homemade embellishment may be a stretch, but here's what I did:
- I misted the October Afternoon paper with yellow then green, using a sunburst as a mask.
- I painted inside the masked sunburst, then outlined it with a pen.
- The sunburst became the home for my title and journaling.
The next one is a photo I had to scrap before the story went away:
I had found a ton of receipts cleaning out my purse last month, so I took a photo and wrote about what they revealed. Miracle of miracles, I apparently only went to Archiver's once that week! I like the little bits of pink, which I so rarely use. I used Studio Calico's July kit.
The final one is this week's Color Room challenge:
Yet again it has purple, X%&#! I own several purple shirts, but I own even fewer scrappy supplies in purple than in pink. Thank goodness for Primas, which have an endless supply of purple. I also used a purple core paper, sanding it a little to reveal some of the hue. I also sanded it to rough up what was otherwise a fairly neat LO. These kids don't really play neat together, so a little rough is good.
