A few new things

Monday, July 25, 2011

Not very much time to scrap over the last few days.  I spent so much time helping Evan while he was working on his Book of Snickers, that I didn't get anything of my own finished.  That's ok.  It was time well spent and worth every moment.

I did manage to get these 2 LOs completed.  Both use sketches, and both were inspired by the BPC classes I am taking.  MotherLOAD and Design Challenges.

MotherLOAD week 4 assignment- Use PP and items you've been "saving" for the perfect time to use them.  Design Challenge #7-Use bold PP on a multi photo LO.

This first one uses Sketchy Thursdays 7/21 sketch. I love the sketch and thought it would be easy for me to use.  Boy was I wrong.  It took me a long time to finish it.  I was having a hard time trying to make it work.  I thought about starting over, but I've never done that before and wasn't going to start now.  I decided to walk away for a while.  I came back to it, added the paper strips and title and left it at that.  I like it more than I thought would.  A great challenge for me!

This next one uses the 7/21 sketch from Sassy Li'l Sketches.  Another awesome sketch.  Had an easier time with this one, but I wasn't sure about using so many bold PP.  I thought maybe it was too busy.  I decided to run with it.  It's a fun and playful LO.  I'm happy with the results.
