I have a lot to share with you today...
First off is a layout that I did yesterday of my dad for the Croppers Cottage store. I was inspired by a layout out of the designing with calendar done by Renee for March 8th. I love how she used all the tags so I took it a step further and challenged myself to only use stamps...specifically Sue's Stamped In Ink (available at Croppers Cottage ) stamps which I haven't been using to their full potential. I LOVE the way that it turned out. I also threw some of Tim Holtz's distress inks on the tags to help them flow with the layout. The base patterned paper is some of the 3 Bugs in a Rug - French Country paper (first time I have played with it too.)
Next is my day 5 of the 21 day challenge. I call this Ode to a Checkmark (LOL). The style of the page was determined by that fabulous quote done by Rhonna Farrer. She is one talented lady and I am loving this challenge. I read on someone else's blog that they plan on continuing this challenge every 21 days just with a different habit to change. I am thinking that is a great idea because I am having so much fun! I encourage you to go visit her blog. All the participants are linking in when they have done their day's art page and there is some amazing stuff there...an incredible variety of styles too!
Finally today's creative prompt: another household product for you...my hair gel! But look at all the graphic possibilities that it has. The little quadrant at the top, the swirl in the middle, the grouping of four squares, or you could even go with the color scheme, adding a bit of bling! I think that it will be a lot of fun to try to interpret into paperart so have fun with it and then give me a link to what you do!
Well, I have scrapbook club here in the morning so lots of cleaning to get done and I feel a killer headache coming on so I better get to work!
