first ever Let's Scrap challenges

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

For the first time ever I have completed a challenge on the "internet". I am so excited, and I really enjoyed it. Both challenges were from Let's Scrap. The first challenge was the weekly sketch challenge for the 11th of May with the following sketch.



My layout and interpretation of the sketch was as follows.





I used pictures of my sister and her horse Phoenix from the Nissan Easter Show during April. The patter paper and embellishments that I used are from Kaisercraft. In the sketch there is a lot of white space. Over the past couple of months my scrapbooking style has changed a bit to not include so much white space, so the sketch was quite a challenge for me. But in the end I decided to use the brackets which I found among my enormous stash of stuff.

The second challenge was part of the National Scrapbook Day (Month) Challenge. We were given the following sketch,

and this is what I came up with :-)

The picture was taken during our christmas holiday in 2009. I picked the paper in November already, as I wanted to scrap it during our 2010 christmas holiday, but I could not get a sketch or inspiration for the picture. So when I was looking for a picture to use for the challenge I came across this picture, and it was like Karma :-) Here is a picture of the detail on the LHS of the layout.

I used some cream paper flowers (along with the 1 prima flower) which I glimmer misted with copper and green just to blend them with the paper a bit. And in the end I found that they give the layout just the right amount of detail, nothing too fancy or too much.

I hope you enjoyed it and head on over to Let's Scrap, it really is an awesome place to be part of (http://letsscrap.ning.com/)
