I'm really excited to be staying on for another term at The Studio Challenges, and especially excited to be creating layouts! The first challenge for August went up today, and is all about books.
"Your challenge is to gain your inspiration from books, whether that is a book cover, a title, story or something else..."
I decided to focus on my love of reading, and used a couple of rare photos of me taken by my DH, with my nose buried in a book.I used a past kit from Sarah's Cards, full of MME 'Stella and Rose' papers. I added some white paint to the base paper using the lid of my Adirondack paint dabber and some bubble wrap. I then built up the layers using strips of patterned paper and some of the fabulous embellishments from the kit, including the MME transparency and those gorgeous felt hearts.
This month the sponsor is Scrap Rat Kits. There is already a £10 voucher up for grabs for the scraplift challenge (redeemable against anything in the store) and Amanda is giving away a £15 voucher for the main August challenges!
My craft room is now up and running, and I'm absolutely loving it! It's not completely finished, and the furniture will need to be moved around at some point in the future, but I've got everything stored on the Expedit unit now, and the desk is a joy to work on - much better than the kitchen table!
Thanks for stopping by :D
