We're challenging you to use a SHAPE predominantly in your creation this week. That's right, but not any old shape will do. NOPE!
We challenging you to use a particular shape in your project. It's like a crafty Iron Chef....the secret ingredient is
Any artistic craft project of your choosing, it is just that simple to be in shape. (Oh if it were only that way with my figure - oh yeah I agree entirely)
First up, a little cowboy influenced here on this young fella's card. I I was thinking of using the twine tied around the top of the card and then thought - hey, this looks like a lasso. Yep, I think it does and the rest came together.
All of the supplies used are kind of old (I'm still working on using what I have rather than buying more). DCWV checked paper - bought eons ago by the page (I think from JoAnn's), Daisy Bucket is maker of the blue paper with red stars, the little cowboy chipboard tag and the white chipboard stars are K&Company, Distress Inks for edges in Fired Brick and Weathered Wood, twine, and Star die from QuicKutz (it's the little red heart in the sentiment space).
(Jana thinks this card is adorable. It's a lucky boy who will get this one.)
Items used here are black cardstock glued to a white card blank, a scrap of gold metallic Wausau paper, the gold star paper is by Le Make Unknown - 'cause I can't find any label on this here paper, ribbon from Le Stash du Rosemarie
(Jana thinks this card is very elegant. Very proper for man or woman.)
Jana here. I made a layout, well a 2 page spread for the Challenge of ME class I am taking at Big Picture Scrapbooking. (I know, you are shocked that I am taking a class at BPS. But, I decided to go a little wild.) Anyway, I was assigned to make a 6x12 album for this class. I have never made one and it sounded like fun. I am not one to shy away from too many challenges, so, I am doing it.
My layout is actually a hybrid. I did it backwards. I made a paper and glue layout, then added the journaling in PSE7. Just cuz I could. (actually, I am running out of time. I have to get ready for ANOTHER b-day party tonight. So, I have to make it a quick one....)
And here it is:
Products used are various. I just grabbed things I have had for a while. Journaling reads, well, you'll have to go to my blog for a longer, drawn out post. (insert evil laugh)
(Rosemary stopping in to comment - this is awesome, I love everything about this - and Jana is an entirely marvelous friend to have, she is fabulous!)
Now it's your turn.
Make us see STARS.
