Almost a year ago, I got a challenge from a good crafty friend, Ingvar Kvinnesland, also called Dilly Dally among other scrapbookers and cardmakers. I was planning to do the challenge, but since changed so much this past year, I was waiting to get the crafty mojo back. This challenge has been on my desk, and kind of "kikking" me a bit. Now, as my mojo is comming back, and life is setteling in a new place, I took the challenge. And this is the result (written for the Papercrafting in Norwegian).
This was the items I got to create somthing with:
The plant had to be altered. The ribbon had to be altered. Only two of the die cuts could be taken away. The chain could not be alteredd. Alt least one of the wodden bits had to be used. Since a lot of the diecuts were in pink, I decided to keep the finished result in pink colour tones. The finished result was a mixed media layout.
Finished Mixed Media layout:
The background is an old paper from Prima. The pattern has been made on the background paper with th Tim Holtz stenzil from the challenge, gesso and white glitter. Then, die cuts, lace, chipboard and embellishment was added in layers. The photo was taken at sun rise by Uluru in Australia. The photo has been added in a metal frame from an old clock.
The grass had to be altered, and has been colourd with Kaisermist. At the end, I have also added some sprays og gesso to the layout.
Challenges like this is fantastic fun. Try to challange someone else, and you might inspire someone greatly.
