Hello CE friends!! I hope everyone is enjoying Spring so far. For us it has been rainy. You know the good ol’ saying , “April showers bring May flowers.” I love gardening… flowers and new foliage is popping up everywhere.
I want to mention we also have a DT call that ends on the 15h. So if you are interested please get those apps in.
Now onto our challenge. Simply be inspired by one element from the picture below. Please be sure to let us know how the picture inspired you if it isn’t obvious. The twist is to stamp an image to the background of your project.
Hello! This is Marci. This one was easy for me as my son has always been involved with music and bands. This photo is from about 10 years ago in their “Metallica” pose (My son, Kevin, is on the right). I stamped music notes on the fringed black circle. completing this month’s TWIST. I used a lot of CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS PRODUCTS-that is really easy because I love chipboard (I left most of it natural!) and I am totally in love with flair buttons! Links follow to those products I used above: Music note border, Moon Stars, Music flair button, RECORD w/dripping notes, Dream (inked and coated with Glossy Accents, STARS. I hope you have some time this month to join us!
Hi… Bev here. I am using some of the colours from the challenge mood board, the heart shapes and the twist part to use a stamp (love) and scribble heart stenciled using modeling paste to texture them. I added butterfly flair buttons and lots of amazing chipboards: Moments Word Set, single heart, heart border, washi tape shape clusters, and scribble hearts accent. The papers are PhotoPlay Bloom Collection, Blue Fern Soft Blossoms and some lace. The background is done with a plastic bag over my hand dabbing different colours of paint.
Hi everyone, I am so excited about sharing this most recent page with you today. When I saw this challenge image, I knew I wanted something fun and colorful. I dug out some old pictures of the boys and started to play with my stencils and distress inks for my background. Then I wanted to add some stamping. I chose the following stamps: Distressed Script stamp and the Distressed corner stamp. Next step was to add a bit of momentum and volume to my page with a chipboard. I used the Circle Doodle Frame that I cut in half and covered with red paint. I hope you will join in and participate in our challenge this month. Have a great day !
Hello and happy May Day!
There are so many things in this challenge photo to take inspiration from. I took mine from the music note, the sun burst and hearts. To create my background, I added watercolors and then using the Grunge Star Stamp stamped randomly on my page using black ink. I used one of the Music Note Borders, cut it in half and placed one half on each side of my photo. I used the Basic Alphabet Set for the “In Concert” part of my title. I scattered some of the Wood Veneer Heart Clusters around my layout. I colored all of the Creative Embellishment pieces with my new Nuvo Glitter Markers.
Have a wonderful month and I can’t wait to see how the photo inspires you!
Hi everyone and welcome to the new May Challenge! I had fun making these tags. For the twist I did some background stamping with the Flourish Set 10 chipboard pieces…and then added them to the tags. Look at the adorable Square Mini Frames behind the cute fairies! Perfect tags for that next bottle or wine I take for the hostess at dinner! I hope you join along with this months challenge and can not wait to see what you all create.
Hello all!! I was inspired by the music elements in the photo above. I started with a large tag and I applied gesso to the whole background. I then sprayed the background with blue and pink mists. I followed by applying the distressed chevron and grid stamp images with black ink to the background. I then added TH music note washi tape. I then grabbed for my TH sun ray stencil and applied heavy gesso to add that image behind the Julie Nutting doll. I altered the music note frame 2, washi tape heart cluster, Dance to the beat of your dreams title piece and vintage flourish 3 chippies with TH stains and paints. I finished with a bunch of beautiful petaloo flowers.
