Hello there!!! I've taken up the very FIRST More Than Words Challenge!!! The Main Challenge is based on a Word inspiration and a Creative Challenge...I've wanted to join in this brand new challenge since it was announced last year - and mark my words...the DT is AWESOMELY talented and from what I've seen so far, the entries to this challenge are WAY beyond fantastic!! So, here's the inspiration picture:
You can choose to use the word "personality" somewhere on your project, or simply be inspired to create from it. Plus, January's creative challenge is to use a "selfie".
Honestly, at the moment I hate photos of myself, although I don't mind group photos so much. This photo took a while, and it’s a bit pixelated (as am I) and I'm doing the normal "cheeky, weird" smile lol. Oh and in case you're wondering where my inspiration came from?? Very good question because I'd lost my mojo for about 2 weeks this month and I didn't even think I'd have enough time...but since this LO is "all about ME",
I've used my favourite (not clean and simple) "shabby" scrapping style together with a collection of old and new embellishments that are intended to symbolise my (diverse) personality
Supplies Used: Usually I would list ALL the products, but today I thought I'd share my favourites and also reveal that my favourite supplies (still) come from SCRAPPING OUTBACK, my2angels scrapbooking and craft supplies and the occasional internet site such as Mirrabooka Scrapbooking (where I got the metal mask and silver fern from).
So without further ado I have used Marion Smith Designs papers (Junque Gypsy collection - Carte Blanche, Shangri La and Nota Bene); Microbeads; Dylusions Diamond border stencil; Martha Stewart punches;
Prima Marketing flowers, alphas, findings (bath), wooden embellishments (key to happiness, Eiffel Tower); Kaisercraft Mist (orange); Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst mists (Cocklebells Coral, Mission Bells Brown, Sea Mint Green) and Flat Fabio (Toto's Tornado black); Couture Creations foam mounting tape.
Most charms on this LO come from my2angels scrapbooking and include: passport, world (my love of travel), scissors (my love of cutting paper); cook book (my love of cooking); teapot, cake with cutlery (my love of tea and sweet food lol); house and couch (my love of being home, watching tv with dlh); tree of life, filigrees, butterfly (I adore the symbol of the butterfly);
I’ve placed the wooden Punga, and Koala together representing my dual citizenship; above the bath are some Water Bubble Cabochons representing my love of bubble baths;
The recycled zipper represents the unzipping of my dreams, which includes time (Clock Swag die) to fulfil all my dreams. Of course the camera representing my love of photography and stash words representing other important stuff (to me).
There is also various stash mesh, sticky glitter tape, Impasto gel, black archival ink, Matisse Lang Lang Sand, black gesso, Paua Shells.
Thanks SO much for looking at this long post…. I do hope you now see me as I am, "unmasked".
Till next time hearts ‘n’ hugs Mazz
