Today Lola and I are flying away to a new life in Salt Lake City.
I already miss Brooklyn but I think this is just the kind of challenge I need.
This will be my last post for a few days.
I need to locate reliable internet service and set-up my brand spanking new computer- wooot!
On with the Inspiration Elevator challenge for June!
The purpose of this challenge group is to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow. You can view all of the challenges on my blog by clicking here or check our our new Inspiration Elevator Blog, here.
This month's challenge is issued by the super talented, Sue Sykes. Here's what she had to say in her very own words:
"I have all of my parents' photos stored at my place. Shortly after I began scrapbooking, my mom and I spent hours removing her photos from those dreadful magnetic albums and documenting dates on the back of them all. So I will often sift through them and marvel at how much things change - and yet, they also seem to stay the same.
This month, I'd like to challenge you all to create a comparison layout or project - THEN and NOW. It can be any topic; just document the parallels and differences between an event/person/place from the past and a modern likeness. REMEMBER TO JOURNAL!! :)
Can't wait to see what you all create!"
|Coloring raw chipboard can be a challenge- I used gesso to tone|
down the kraft color first then I covered with Prima ladybug ink but it didn't
look too great so I added a second layer of red orange mist paint.
