|“Those who bring SUNSHINE into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves” James M Barrie|
I’m pleased to say that I finished all my Tafe assessments last Friday and decided that I’d like to participate in a challenge this month! Yay, just for a change! Why is this year flying by?
I’ve created this LO for the Black with Two March challenge …Bw2 is a beautiful blog full of inspiration and colour, run by the lovely naturally talented EVE who is (and I quote lol) a “self confessed scrapaholic lol” – a lady after my own heart I feel J AND she is also one of my DT colleagues over at ‘this one’s a winner’.
For Black with 2 monthly challenges, you are given a “mood board” with 1 word (Sunshine), 1 sketch plus a 2 colour palette (lemon & thyme) to create on a black background.
The photo is of (one of) my maternal great grandmothers, Ellen Blandford. (My mother’s-father’s-mother). I hope to create a LO of my other maternal great grandma in due course.
For those of you who didn’t see my post in Face Book over the weekend, the page started like this…and no I really didn’t want to cover it up lol…Alas! That was just the starting point of the sketch - depicting the circle.
Black cardstock; FabScraps and Bo Bunny pps; WOW (Words or Whatever) Doily mask; Plaid (Peridot) Extreme Glitter; Mazz’s Stash Sale flowers; die cuts; chipboard leaves (unknown); lace; builder’s mesh; my2angels sun & clock charms and framed sentiment (lemon); Helmar adhesives; Inka-Gold (gold); Ranger Perfect Pearls Mists (sunflower sparkle); Tim Holtz Distress Paint (mustard seed); Gesso.
Yippee, Ye HAW! I’m now on (Tafe) vacation for (nearly) a month so I’m hoping to get a few ‘projects’ finished in the near future. You may have noticed in my side-bar that my “MAZZ’s MAGIC Shots” photos are now uploaded in my Flickr account – I’m considering that as a ‘start’ as well. SO...Until next time…take care all, and please say hi if you’ve been to visit here.
