Cyber Cropping at ScrapTherapy - My LO's & card
Challenge 1 - challenge to do LO on something old (not a person) and to use 3 different types of distressing. Either: inking, sanding, scrunching, tearing, tea or coffee staining & rolling.
Challenge 2 - inspirational challenge, also had to use sepia or black and white photo. Also had to have hand-drawn element on layout. I used doodling around photo.
Challenge 3 is always a sketch challenge. I had this old photograph printed on transparency and sitting in a folder for over a year and really wanted to do something with it but couldn't decide what or how. When I saw this sketch and picked out the paper it all just fell together for me.
Challenge 4 - card challenge and the girls at ScrapTherapy were kind to us this month as we only had to make one card but we could only just scraps and something around house that we recycled on card. I used the ribbon (the one that they have on tops to stop them slipping of coat hangers) from a billabong top, I had this scrap pp of surf boards somewhere, took me nearly half a day to find it as I knew I hadn't used it.
It was such a productive weekend for me.
Today I also did the page map for the retreat next week, will load it up after the retreat with all the LO's I'm doing while there.
This is my av this month, each month at ScrapTherapy we change our av's to match the month's theme - this month it is - EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN
