This weeks challenge at Punky Scraps is journaling-themed, and Nat has given us this piece of prose to use as our jumping-off point:
Quite a good bit of advice don't ya think? I've been in quite a rut lately, and this sort of hit me hard- but I guess maybe in a good way. It got me off my butt and into the studio for some theraputic time with paint and paper, here's what I came up with:
This layout was LOTS of fun to make, and very quick and easy too! I started with a piece of white CS, squirted a bit of pink, grey and balck craft paint,and then smeared in one fell swoop with a toungue depressor. I did the same thing to a strip of white CS I had printed the journiling on, but just in pink; and layered to the background. For my grey circle, I scribbled a circle a few times with my handy-dandy sharpie and then hand-cut so it wasn't too perfect. My photo was adhered to the grey, and then tacked down with black electrical tape for quick and not-so-pretty photo corners. Smeared a small amount of paint on my title before edging with my spiral notebook punch and then tucked behind my photo. And....there ys have it!
Would love to have you pop on over to Punky Scraps and see what the rest of the DT has come up with. Hopefully you'll play along with our challenge too! When you do, be sure to come on back here and let me know, you'll be entered in my Bday Girl Challenge- I'm giving one lucky follower a lovely little package of bday-themed goodies on 2/22/11 (my Bday!!) =) T
