Just Us

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Good morning and happy April 1. Are you a big April Fool's prankster? It was never a big deal when I was growing up. I'm not about to change that now.

I like beginning the month with a new LO to share.  We are having a special event at Child's play Challenges this month. We are having a crossover event with ScrapStuff'z Inspired by. What does this mean? You will find the same inspiration photo on both challenge sites as well as a sketch to use. There are prizes available to you on both sites. Create and your project using the sketch and inspiration photo on both challenge sites and double your chance to win a prize.

So here goes!  This week at Child's play it is Craft Challenge week.  We decided SAND ART would be a fun challenge.

here is the sketch we used, created by the talented Laura Whitaker.

this is what I created

I liked the feeling of movement in the jars of colored sand and tried to recreate that with the chevron patterned papers. I did like the colors of the sand as well. Not too pastel, but not overly bright. The papers are in those shades and worked well not to over power the photo.  The sketch was fun and easy ti use. It was a great choice for multiple patterns of paper.  The circles for me are a nice contrast to all of the stripy lines.  Universal themed embellishments seemed like a good choice as well.

Thank you for taking a look today.  I hope you will stop by both Child's Play Challenges and ScrapStuff'z Inspired by this month and join in our crossover event. Head over to them now to see what prizes are up for grabs.
