You may recall from last month's challenge that the purpose of this challenge group was to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow.
This month our challenger was the very talented Lisa Moen. Lisa, like most of us, doesn't always take the "perfect" photos. In fact, sometimes, the imperfect is all you have to tell your story. This month Lisa challenged us to use those imperfect photos to tell an story. Here's what she had to say about her challenge:
"I was digging through some old 1980's photos the other day and realized how bad some of the pictures were. Cameras have come a LONG way since then!
I have lots of pictures I haven't scrapped because they were/are poor quality pictures and I am sure you have pictures like that too. So let's dig out those blurry, bad pictures and tell the story behind them! So my challenge to you this month is to use a bad photo and journal about it."
I hope you will stop by and see what the designers on this adventure have created:
Once I chose the photo and some paper for a mat, I got to work, or should I say, started playing. :)
I misted some scrap ouchless cardboard and then cut out the semi circles to layer in a fishscale pattern.
I carried the butterfly motif started on the right side over to the left and added some dew drops and stickles to continue with the red and blue. Red, blue and yellow = Disney colours, right?
My title work - multi font and multi colour, as usual. They also started out as white and the ones that are not white anymore, well, I altered.
