okay folks, come and play along, and give me a little ego boost, mmmkay? :) this is my first time playing along with the AMAZING Design Team at Envious, and i'll be totally honest - i'm a LEEDLE bit nervous and intimidated, 'cuz those Nerds are SUPAH crafty and creative and talented! i'm SO excited to be on the team (THANK YOU, LYNNETTE!), but i hope i can keep up with all their greatness!
so i can't gush ENOUGH about the concept - create with a collage as your inspiration. it's FABULOUS, and our Headmistress gives us some fabulous imagery to kick our mojo into overdrive! feast your eyes on this month's collage:
HOT, no? i love Blondie! and the '80s seems to be a recurring theme this month (scroll down for deets on the new Some Odd Girl challenge!)...
my project started out with one little scrap of pink and white paper from SEI (that i wasn't crazy about, and has been sitting in my scrap stash for, oh, well over a year)... fussycut it to bits and turned into a frame for my 5"x8" art journal page. found the Frida clipping from a brochure from the art museum, and the rest just kind of FELL onto my paper, i swear. it's like the thing assembled itself - it all just kind of leapt forth from my stash, and each new element i picked up just HAPPENED to be exactly what i was looking for. that NEVER happens! (click to enlarge!)
my title is from Blondie's "The Tide Is High"
houndstooth circle from a KI Memories "Sheer Delights", yellow backgound paper and green handcut scalloped border from BasicGrey, Queen & Co. pink felt, little airplanes (and the book, below) cut from an old greeting card, the red flowers used to be attached to my glasses case
buncha Thickers (the pink backed on black cardstock so they would stand out, and the light blue dotted 'cuz i like to doodle!), my trusty Dymo Label Buddy (with a bit of a My Little Shoebox twist), cupcake is a Unity stamp from the Prismacolor "class" i attended some months back with Lauren (hee hee - yeah, like we LEARNED something from that "class"!)... felt arrow from American Crafts, butterflies made with MS punch *swoon*
SHEESH! i think that's probably the MOST detailed description i've ever given of a project! to be honest, i rarely remember all the elements i use, or who makes the papers, so this is probably just a fluke. ;)
anywho.... we Nerdy Girls at Envious would love to see what you can do using the above collage as your inspiration! you could win this sweet little pack of yum:
and i'd be thrilled to see some of my pallies playing along with the Nerdy Girls! GO HERE FOR THE CHALLENGE, and you have until the end of May to get your projects in, and then the voting will begin for a favourite... so yeah, there's plenty of time, but you don't want to wait, because then you might FORGET! *gasp!* hope i'll be seeing you over there, and, well, have a fantabulatious weekend, chickens! (mine's off to a great start!)
