My new challenge
Ok it's a known fact that I have been struggling to do scrapbook layouts for a while now, however after making my 12 days of ArtsyCrafts tags I think I could make a tag (or two!) everyday! So, in order to use this creativity usefully (after all even I don't need hundreds of tags!) I have decided to set myself a challenge whereby I make a tag and then from this try and a make a card and a scrapbook layout too whilst I am still feeling creative. Bernice reckons the best way to go is by using recipes - I am still a bit skeptical as I have tried recipe challenges before but found them too difficult - but then that is what it is all about really isn't it - a challenge!
So to start off, my first challenge to myself is to look at the clock. Then using the 24 hour clock I decided to use a word title for the first digit, a flower/brad/button for the second digit, colours/papers for the third digit and stamped images for the fourth.
So I first looked at the clock at 12.29 on Saturday and from this I got to use: a 1 word title, 2 embellishments, 2 colours and 9 stamped images (hope you see where I am going with this!), and from this recipe I created this:
Then I looked at the clock on Sunday at 08.34 (yes honestly I scrap that early if I can!) and from that I made the card in the previous post whereby I had no title (0), five flowers and three brads (8), three colours which were Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick (3) and I used three of Tim's new haberdashery stamps and one of his new reflection stamps (4).
And then to see if my mojo challenge would work I looked at the clock again to get cracking on a layout. It was 13.34. Here is my layout (yes I have done one and it's a double one too!!!):
