One of my very favorite bloggers, Diane Campbell Payne at Capadia Design, issued a challenge to her readers recently.
Diane describes what I often experience, and that is, finding inspiration for our crafting in many places. As she's rearranging her craft room (incorporating new Ikea finds!), she came across an old styrofoam take-out box, pictured here.
Her challenge? Create a project using this lid as inspiration, and linking back to her blog. And since one of my goals is to participate in more challenges to stretch my imagination, I played along.
This is my entry. I created a 12x12" layout for granddaughter Charlotte's scrapbook.
Staying as true as I could to the challenge "sketch," I sized two of Cheezer's tub-time photos and used a rubber-ducky paper background. (It's from my stash, I'm not sure of the manufacturer.) For the water droplets paper, I used scrap from my American Crafts' "Everyday" collection.
I used rubber duck, bubbles and the sentiment fussy cut from a paper I got in a Facebook swap with Jennifer Lepard (thank you, Jennifer), along with stickers received from Jen too. I gave a little dimension to some of the cut-outs with foam tape, and glossed up the bubbles using Ranger's Glossy Accents plus Stickles to highlight the sentiment.
What do you think? Did I rise to the challenge?
