I scrapped!

Yep, I scrapped again.

I looked around for a suitable challenge to attempt, just to get me going again. Megan’s Friday night challenge seemed just perfect. A good number of ‘conditions’ and a fairly short deadline – so I didn’t have ages to fuss around with it.

So the ‘rules’ – Use either blue/orange or pink/orange as the main colour scheme. Use the title Summer Days and use some stickers that are at least a year old.

Fortunately I had some gorgeous heidi grace papers with a touch of orange in them and a piece of orange bling bazzill to get me started.

I’m not sure if I really like the finished result – maybe it’s the orange… but anyway I loved playing with all the yummy heidi grace bits that co-ordinated so perfectly – even though I’ve actually used bits from two different h.g. lines. There’s rub-on’s and stickers and chipboard and plastic see through flower thingys and that little stripe of blue at the bottom is a silky fabric sticker.

I made the scalloped edge at the top using the edge of a fiskars template and the ultra shape-xpress. And I also added some orange rain dots by Cloud 9 cause they seemed to fit perfectly with the water photo and the orange theme.

Oh and the stickers that were atleast a year old – are the round epoxy things in the center of the flowers made by autumn leaves.

It feels good to be creating again … only now I have a messy desk to tidy up!

  5. It is a gorgeous LO Bev… as always! 😉 I love those papers you’ve used – that particular blue and orange really seem to work well to bring that HOT Cromwell feeling out.
    BTW… once someone put me onto the orange idea, I found I used it a LOT… watch out!!!! 🙂
