I joined another scrappy forum, Scrapbook Heaven. Yeah you would think I have enough to do now wouldnt you... oh well what can I say! I am only on three and WeScrap is really really slow and it appears that Scrapbook Heaven is not very busy either. I am the type that needs a flurry of activity to keep me going, without it I tend to lose focus and my mojo.
Anyway, the first challenge I did for Scrapbookheaven was to do a layout about a pet using this sketch.
Meanwhile, Over at WeScrap, we had a colour challenge to do a layout using these colours:
So I combined the two challenges and came up with Evil Catified. I used BG's Hopscotch papers.
Next I did a challenge to use a cluster on a layout, which I combined with a challenge from SOS for an inspiration challenge. I used BGs Curio papers. The flowers are fussy cut and then covered with UTEE. I got the idea for the flowers from a tutorial for glass flowers here. The tutorial uses a melting pot for the UTEE but I just used my embossing gun.
I also did another challenge for WeScrap, the challenge was to use bling on a layout. I combined that challenge with a challenge at SOS, that challenge was to use a die-cut paper that had been cut into pieces but all the pieces used on a layout.
I used BGs Paper, Max Whiskers line. I converted a PSP mask into a SVG file using Inkscape and then cut it with my Expression using SCAL to get my Die cut paper and those swirly things in the corners. The bird and the flourish were both cut from Maya Road chipboard designs. The flourish was embossed first with orange embossing powder and then with UTEE. The bird was inked with a yellow ink. The blink is from the dollar store.
Since I am barely getting any time at the store anymore, I just might end up joining another forum or two. The only problem will be pictures... I need pictures to scrap. I am already scrapping pictures that have been scrapped before.
Been watching a bunch of YouTube how to videos and have a lot of things I wanna try.. so stay tuned.
