Second layout is two challenges combined. The design and colors were inspired by the weekly challenge at For The Luv of Art. We were to use this card as our inspiration. I took it pretty literal.
I also used the Bonus Challenge at Scrap-Friendzy, which is the subject of "celebration" and to hand journal around the edge of your creation. I love this layout. While it is so not my normal style, it makes me smile when I look at it. I knew I would use those Jolee's balloon stickers one day.
Last is the mini wall hanging. I made one of these a while back, but am submitting it to be published so I can't share it yet. I was so enamored with the original that I had to make a second one, this time focusing on my Grandma as the subject. I used the Melissa Frances vintage postcard book as the base, (I LOVE this book, FYI. So much possibility), Melissa Frances element at the top and some of her and Heidi Swap's chandelier crystals. There is a Melody Ross inspiration card, The Art Life roses and collage words, Tim Holtz memo pin, Making Memories stick pin, Jenni Bowlin buttons, Basic Grey pearls, and vintage daisy jewelry and lace.
I love this. This is totally my style and it was so fun to put together. Most of these items were purchased at The Art Life Shop, in case you want to make your own. Now let's see what TODAY holds for me. Definitely not a headache.
