Be in to win

Have you checked out this months challenge over at Up2scrap? The prise, up for grabs this month is a 6 X4" Printers tray from 7 Gypsies. Grab a copy of the latest Up2scrap mag to see Dianne Hanson's beautifully decorated photo wont want to miss a chance to win one for your self!

Annelie has set the latest challenge, and because I was fascinated by her colour choice I decided to have a go at the challenge myself. Check out the colour scheme ...My background card stock is cream, it just looks a little on the grey side in these photos, no doubt that's because I photographed my page in the shade to avoid harsh shadows.

Instead of using paper, I have used part of an old crochet doily, lace and ribbon to boarder my photo, and of course I cannot use fabric without adding the odd button, Guess that comes from the 'sewer' in me!

Those of you who follow my blog will know that 'white space' is not my forte, but I have tried very hard to follow Annelie's instructions and leave 'white space'... although I just could not resist a wee spray, here and there of Glimmer Mist...just to 'tonne down' some of that space! Sorry Annelie. My love of stamping is showing up again with my brown leaves, title and verse.

I have topped a flower and the circle of paper with a little rolled up paper, and I have glued tiny beads onto the centres of the crochet flowers.

Sure hope you give this challenge a go...details can be found by clicking HERE

This is so pretty, great job with the colour combo and the doily looks great.

Wow, this is so pretty Sonya! Love the doily, and your splash of glimmer mist looks perfect to me!

Wilma said...

Ohh, Sonya! You've made a beautiful piece of ART! And I agree with you: the glimmermist is the finishing touch! Have a nice weekend.

Annelie said...

Sonya, this is totally fab! Well done on the white space! The glimmermist adds so much SPARK! Love all your home made embellies as usual, you just rock them! Love it!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
