We have been having our own mini cybercrop over in my Twilight Addicts group on UKS, just nice and relaxed with one class every couple of days over a two week period. But of course even with the easy time allowances I am so behind! I have had a busy week and Christopher has been ill and up at all hours of the night coughing and battling to breathe so I have had hardly any sleep and am walking around like a zombie which is not helping my scrapping speed.. Anyway this challenge was to choose a song by one of your favourite artists and then use that in your layout, either in the title, song words or meaning and then relate it back to Twilight. I do not have a favourite band as I like so many. I had a whole list of songs to use but the Scorpions song You and I seemed to be the easiest to use, so I chose that one.
The heart is actually canvas that I painted and then embossed in my cuttlebug and then inked. I saw the technique on MA's blog and totally adored it so quickly went out and bought some canvas, (I just got an artists pad that is already primed) and this was my first attempt but I plan on many more as I think there are just endless possibilities! I used Scenic Route loveland collection and Kelly Panacci Colour me with love paper.
This was the first one I did and it was just based on a sketch.
I used American Crafts celebration papers. I totally adore the heart which is from Chatterbox and the elephant is so cute, don't remember where that is from though, possibly also American crafts.
I have been decorating again! This is a photo of the corner of the lounge where the computer desk is and I decided it was too plain and needed something. I originally had a large frame with a collage of photos in but it looked silly as there is a large framed mirror in the centre of the couch. I saw a photo somewhere of a room with two or three shelves with photos and pics in different sized frames on it and loved it! So this is the corner before...
I went to B&Q and got some picture shelves which I had to paint as they were white and although I loved them they just didn't match! I also got some nice new frames from the range and printed some black and white photos. Paul says he thinks the corner is too busy now but I like it! I know its a dreadful photo but it was quite a dull day even though the sun was mostly shining!
I did photos of some of the other members of the family and me and Paul as we have all these lovely framed enlargements of the kids all over the house but only a couple of everyone else.
