Saturday Recap - Challenge #60 and #61

Oh, sorry we're late with the last recap! It's been a busy summer - hey, isn't summer when we're supposed to SLOW down? Harumph! Apparently not this summer.


Let's look at Challenge #60 - Anything But a Card (an ABC Challenge). It's lovely to see other projects that you work on! We're going to take a look, in no particular order:

First up is our bloggy buddy Susan's beautiful ATC - limited colors but how the colors are used really sets a mood to the piece - that is so tricky to do well but it sure is done wonderfully here!

Friend of the OG Hazel submitted two projects, first is a scripture-inspired layout and is gentle but powerful in its impact. Love the heart within a heart (which to me came across as always having the Lord's love surrounding us). The torn paper is also an eye-catching and powerful element as well.

then in a completely different mood is the skinni that Hazel made and shared with us. Blue and white china is so crisp and clean and refreshing (even stamped!) and this is no exception.

Our dear friend Electra made a collaged house that is so fun and happy that you wish you could live there. It makes me think of that old old movie You Can't Take it With You,where there's all sorts of things happening from attic to basement! Loving the little one poised at the roof!

Our longtime friend of the OG blog Divya shared her home decor project - she embellished simple frames with tiny mirrors. It really adds such a lovely element to the frames!

Like Divya, Carol took a plain element and made it fantastic. Wow is the first thing we thought of seeing this plaque. Hard to believe it started off plainly, Carol made it her own and it is so wonderfully girly and pretty with delicate embellishment and romantic touches. Beautiful!


Now, as for the last challenge - #61, we asked you to share your crafty space with your fellow OG'ers, and we're so happy that several of you took on the challenge of showing your creative hideaways. There really isn't a recap to be done of that but a sincere THANKS for your Poobahs for being brave and playing along with us! If you haven't checked each other's blogs out, we highly recommend that you do because there is not only a peek at how someone else channels their creative spirit, but also you need to see what other projects you're all up to! We get so happy (and INSPIRED) with what you're working on!

Don't forget to check back here on Sunday and see what the latest Opus Gluei challenge will be!
