Set it Down Anywhere

Hello! Sorry I've been MIA - I'm on holidays, catching some sunshine and avoiding covid spots.

ArtStacks is sponsoring the month-long #seekgathercreate challenge so I thought I'd participate.

The challenge requires you to use certain items on your project. Weeks 3's requirements are:

The focus of my page is an Altered Ancestor and funny quote from Lorraine Haight Moraine's CoreStack. I love these!

Because I'm on holidays I found it hard to collect some of the items needed for the challenge. The old photo was easy - Lorraine's images are perfect for this! I used blue watercolour and a piece of one of the blue backgrounds from Lorraine's BackStack. The fabric part was not so easy. I eventually cut off the hanger ribbon from inside one of my t-shirts and used that! I cut the barcode from a cheese packet and used the Say Cheese sticker from the same pack. I thought it was appropriate for the stern-looking woman. I added the badge about only 6 grams of sugar as there is very little sugar in this woman's expression. :)

I hope you can join in the #seekgthercreate challenge. You could win an ArtStacks prize!

Happy creating!

Doesn't Follow Directions......

Hello! It's the first of the month which means there's a new challenge over at Kraft + and it's such an original challenge. You have to use pie-chart shapes on your kraft-based project!

I thought about this then decided to create some funky, oversized flowers that are in a pie-chart shape.

My flowers started out as a collaged piece of paper using up scraps that were lying around my desk, mostly from ArtStacks' The Homemaker Stack. I simply collaged these onto a blank background then used this collaged paper to cut out my flowers.

To create the flowers, I simply cut rough circles from the paper then cut a couple of pie wedges from the circles, moved them out from the main circle slightly, then decorated them with 'stamens'.

The funny woman and the quote are from Lorraine Haight Moraine's CoreStack from ArtStacks. I love these!

I thought the lady is the very strange dress clearly doesn't follow directions - or understand the meaning of "one word" - lol!

I hope you can join in the challenge. You can find the details here.

Happy scrappin'!
