You should have reached me from our wonderful follower Tina and if you've missed anyone along the way, I suggest you start at the beginning over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. We've got a new follower joining us today too - fellow Scrapabilly Design Team member Anne - so please make sure you head over there to say hello. The member blog hop is always such a great chance for us to connect with our followers and give some love for their gorgeous creations.
This month, the challenges over on the blog were:
- Challenge #1: - Sketches! (Shimelle sketches)
- Challenge #2: - Just One Lesson
- Challenge #3: - Inspired by Kate Spade
I got all excited and printed out four wonderful photos of my visit to the Kate Spade shop in NYC's Soho district and then realised that my Sundance kit wouldn't match my other NYC layouts. So now I have to make time to create that page another time.
But just to show you the gorgeous colours in that will inspire my page. This was a super challenge!
Instead, I switched direction and used this gorgeous sketch by Shimelle featured on this post for challenge #1.
I was also really inspired by the layout based on the sketch by Gina Rodgers. All those gorgeous layers and bits and pieces. So I sort of loosely worked my layout around the sketch and the layout.
I liked the three distinct areas to include photos, title and words. As mentioned above, I was very inspired by Gina Rodger's layout and went with lots of layers and just two photos, reserving the middle section for my journalling and title.
Couldn't resist using this sweet washi tape even though it didn't match the rest of the layout so well.
I dipped some more of my letters and this up-close photo shows the that bubbles in the paint didn't give them a good surface, but I like the result enough to be happy with them.
This is layout #3 from my kit so far. It's a bit kit so you can expect to see more of these shades appearing in layouts in the weeks to come. October is a LOAD month, so I'm hoping to work my way through one or two of the four kits I still have on my shelf.
Thanks for dropping by. Let me know you were here!
Here's the full list in case you've got lost along the way or missed any of today's hoppers.
