Memento Inspiration

Becky Higgins:Turquoise Edition,
Anna Aspnes:Distress Tools No.10
Pink Reptile Designs: Wanderlust
Over at From Screen 2 Scrap this month's movie inspiration is "Memento", which is one of those hidden gems if you like mystery movies with twists and turns.  I must confess we had to watch it twice to catch some of it, but it was worth it.

The extra criteria is to use a photo in a polaroid type frame, white cardstock and have a black title. Deadline is the end of this month so there's still time to get a LO done.  They're very nice and love seeing new people join in their challenges. So let's do it!

Have a Happy Craftin' Day!

ARTastic Challenge for May

This month over at Artastic Challenge Blog they are highlighting the painting The Cricketer's by Sir George Russell Drysdale. All you need to do is draw inspiration from the painting and scrap about an outdoor event. I was inspired by the color palette of orange, green, biege, although now that the page is done I guess I leaned heavily on the "green" part of that palette...lol.  I used the kit "Sunkissed-Sunset" by Jennifer Labre and modified a template from Simply Tiffany.  You have until the end of May to get a LO done. Plenty of time to stretch those scrapbooking muscles and join in the challenge! 
 Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'!

My First Ali Edward's Class

Studio Rebecca/Studio Tangie Collab: Steampunk Je T'Adore.
Studio Tangie: AJF Mad Hatter, FiveSevenandTwo,
AJC12 Parcel 12
Ali Edward's 31 Things class started today. The 1st prompt arrived and I started journaling.  But when it came to the LO, I didn't have a photo I wanted to use and was having a hard time with the template for the album.  Anyone whose seen Ali's pages know she has a very clean, linear style.  I was having a hard time trying to fit into that style.  So I ditched the template and went for it. And here's the result.  It will be interesting to see if there are any others taking the class that won't be using the album templates.

Thanks for sharing in my journey!  Hope you have a fun day :-)

Snapshot 2012-Week 9

Studio Viva Artistry-Altered Girl Talk
Studio Tangie-AJF Rockinghorse Fly

Over at Scrapbook Graphics they have a Time Capsule Project called Snapshot 2012. This past week was Snapshot 9-  Snapshot 9 Health-Wellness. ViVa Artistry was hosting the chat this week and they are one of my favorite digi designers so I had to be there.  After the chat they sent out a challenge to do a LO about this week's topic.  LOs had to be done by 12pmEST the next day.  Not alot of time when the chat didn't end unitl after 10pm. 

So because of these two little things called sleep and work I only had about 20 minutes to do the LO.  I decided to do an art journal page.  I went to my ViVa Artistrry folder and they have a kit called "Altered Girl Talk" that featured these ladies.  I knew I had to use them. I played around some with blending modes and opacities and then added my journaling and called it done.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin'!

iSD Challenge Sneak Peek

Happy International Scrapbook Day Weekend :-)

We have posted our challenges here:  iSD Challenge information and can't wait to have you (yes, you!) join in the fun.  I provided a technique challenge.  When I paper scrap it is an imperative that I get ink stains or paint splatters on me. So be prepared to get a little messy :-)
