TWO challenges!!

two very different pages.. one feminine and one masculine
over at WHITE with ONE this month the criteria is ..
purple + doodling
this was fun !!! doodling I LOVE, but PURPLE is a colour I never use, however I discovered that I loved this challenge ...
which is one of the fabulous things about WW1, we are sometimes challenged to create with colours way out of our comfort zone?
have a go at this one and you may be surprised !!!!
The flowers were white and I sprayed them with "GLIMMER MIST" .. "DEEP PLUM"


IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS are sponsoring this month with a prize pack of CHIPBOARD ..

this month the theme is 'Fathers Day" over at "SCRAP FOR HELP" we were asked to use some recycled bottle tops, boxes of matches or cigars, or the seal on a can of soda.
I chose to use bottle tops .....
as you can see on the page I layered these with text paper and cut out paper clocks from BoBunny paper, and added chipboard cogs and the alphas are all from Imaginarium designs ...

the pic is of my darling husband with our two "grandies' taken back in 2007.
I used lots of Tim Holtz "rusty hinge" distress ink to give a grungy, masculine feel to the page.
I printed the photo on cardstock .

IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS are sponsoring this month so you have the chance of WINNING $30 OF YUMMY CHIPBOARD !!!! ya gotta be in it to win it !!!!!

just create a page using one of the recycled items mentioned above and you could be the WINNER !!! woohoo you will love the chippies I PROMISE YOU !!!!!

  26. Awesome layouts here Heather. I love the white with one ones - white to me always looks great on a layout - and the masculine one is also cool with the bottle-tops. Always want to play along at SFH but never seem to get the time. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I only got minor injuries last week & they are healing up nicely. Yes I am trying to take it a bit easier for a while - can't really do that but am just trying not to "do it all" lol
