...in just 2 days..
I am a member of Jennibellie's ning, and as such I get notifications of new challenges each month. I saw this month that there was a 7 day challenge, but I just didn't have time to follow the rules of the challenge properly.
The idea was to work on 7 backgrounds, all at once, adding a layer to each page each day...Because I was pushed for time I did 3 layers on day one and 4 layers on day 2.
Each day(session) we were to choose an element and add it to each page. We were free to use whatever elements we wanted.
I started with 7 pieces of old scrapbooking paper, each a different size.
Session 1. Add paint. I brayered, scraped and dabbed paint onto the various pages.
Session 2. Add pre-stamped tissue paper.
Session 3. I added stencilling.
Session 4. Add collage elements, I used stamped scraps and magazine images
Session 5. I added stamping, using ink and paint.
Session 6. I added more scraped paint
Session 7. I added blended Portfolios.
This is how the pages ended up. These first 2 I am not keen on, really, too uhmm, not sure, bitty, dark, disjointed? whatever, just not keen on these 2.
These 2 are ok, definitely better than the first 2.
These last 3 are my favourites of the batch.
So those are my 7 backgrounds done for the challenge. Not sure what to do with them now...
EDIT...I die cut most of these sheets into flowers,leaves and birds to use on birthday cards. Worked out brilliantly.
