So, here it is, another Wednesday and time to show you what my creative mess looks like today ! Take a look at other “messes” and maybe post yours over at Julia’s blog.
I am on my second effort to put together a page for the latest WhiteWith1 layout contest. I had to totally trash the first one-FAIL!
This one shows promise if I can keep from screwing it up- that’s a big if!
Maybe you can see my carved stamps sitting there waiting to be used (not on this page tho)- My sweet son carved them for me. One day I will probably get around to doing my own, but for now- he is my go-to guy.
I was tempted to cover up my work, you know, just in case-but I trust you all 🙂 !! Who knows? It might end up right next to the last one!
On the heels of my first layout challenge and “A Christmas Story” moment (“It’s a major award!”) – well, it was to me anyway 🙂 I wanted to enter the next WW1 challenge with this layout featuring my lovely eldest daughter.
I was trying out something new as far as scrapbook styles go- the multi layered look with all the curled edges-not my usual style, tho I don’t know if I have a “style” really- I like to try new things all the time. The only thing I can say about my style is that it is not neat and orderely. LOL!
I have incorporated polka dots in all kinds of ways here, from using several papers with dots, to dots of Liquid Pearls, and dots on the little flower peeking out at the top.
The tape (handmade) shows up underneath the photo where it is holding the crystal branch on to the page and also underneath the corner of the butterfly at the top left of the photo. I really loved how freeing this challenge was! I hope you like it too!
Wow! I am so excited! Only my second time entering a layout contest online and I got honorable mention! I was so shocked to see my page there-but how cool is that?
Here is the link to see my entry http://whitewith1.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/ww1-june-winners.html
I’m actually probably lucky to have gotten that as I realized too late that I was supposed to be using LIGHT blue-and as you can see- not so much.
So happy! (heel clicks in the air)
My first time offering a layout for White With 1( http://whitewith1.blogspot.com.au/)
I just gathered all the blue stuff I had and dyed the rest!
