All of these LO's measure 3.25" square, and I can only scrap to a depth of about 3 mm. Now any of you scrappers out there reading this will go "what?" how can you restrict yourself to 3mm? It's WAY difficult. When I've used chipboard, I've had to slice it in half to make it thinner. I've had to keep most of my embellishments away from the edges (as this is where the backing seals)... there have had to be lots of considerations to get them all to fit.
I used my rubons on my monogram 'me' letters.
This photo was taken on a ferry ride on our last trip to Melbourne this Christmas past, and is the photo I have of me on my blog.
Challenge was to use texture paste and the twist was you had use the paste on the background, plus on an embellishment, and you also had to use 3 photos.
I used texture paste on the background which I swept with a pallette knife, painted, inked and gouged out frames around my tiny photos. I also used the paste on my 'zzz' letters, which also had little dots scribed into them with a knitting needle, and then painted.
This is a very recent photo of my husband caught napping after Sunday lunch.
Challenge was to use alcohol inks, the twist was you had to use it on 3 separate surfaces, and you couldn't use acetate.
I really wanted to use the inks on the actual inside lid of the coaster (which is why I bought the coasters in the first place), but no matter what I tried, I just didn't like the way it looked. So, instead, I used 3 different coloured inks, as well as gold, and applied them to the flower (it originally was orange), the letters j and y (which were originally bright yellow), and then I applied the ink around the edge of my LO, and applied it to a stamp which I used to frame my photo. I know you are not meant to use the alcohol inks on porous surfaces, but I actually love how it came out - it's like the colour changes seamlessly.
This is a photo of Emily taken when she was 6, and she was showcasing how you lose electrons on the trampoline!
This challenge starts next Sunday - so I will be back with the last instalment of the challenge next week!
