Its that time of the month again where I have to get my butt in gear for a challenge that I have been contemplating for a month, well this latest challenge I have had two months to think about it. I started off keen and a month of doing nothing and I sprung into action yesterday to complete it for the crop next month.
This is how is started (I had this book as a child so had to read it first!
It then got to this stage:
It sat like this for a month, I cut the frame in the pages and painted the whole thing white then, I was stuck. We decided at the crop that we would make this piece for ourselves so it could be more personalised.
I kept looking at the blank book and just got no inspiration, until the other day when I was looking through some old photos and found my parents wedding photos. It was then that I decided to use these photos and ideas began to form. I used the colours from the wedding, white and blue, and I got started.
I used some old book pages to make the spiral roses, I have not used this technique much as it is to 3D for a scrapbook page but enjoy it on this. I then created some tissue paper flowers that I learnt from fellow challenge girl Carol (link in sidebar). Then it was just a matter of a few bits of decoration using dies cut out on the BigShot from my growing stash and my beloved word stickers. I added some pearl gems on to the flowers to finish it off, I can not find my pin stash but do want to add a couple to the flower clusters. I finished it off with the date, after a text to my mum to find out, I knew the year but not that day.
I am really pleased with how it turned out, I find altered art difficult as my scrapbooking is very graphic in style. But this was meant to be a challenge, and it certainly was that!
The other girls normally post up on there blog so use the links in the sidebar to go check them out. I am wondering what will be next in line for the challenge .
Thanks for Looking.
