Week 10 - Assignment 3

Final one for tonight.... For this assignment we had to think of something we are grateful for - this one was easy, my family.

Week 10 - Assignment 2

For this assignment we had to use black and white photos and then pick two or more triadic colours i.e spaced evenly around the colour wheel. We then had to 'jump the gutter' with the title i.e spread the title across two pages.

Design Your Life - Week 10

Week 10 is all about understanding colour. The first assignment involves picking 4 colours from a photograph, then discarding one or two. You then have to use these colours in varying quantities to accent the photograph. The sketch showed a block of journalling underneath the main photograph and a strip of pattered paper underneath the bottom two photographs. I didn't have a lot to say about the photos, so decided to switch the journalling and PPs.

Real World Colour 9

Thought I'd squeeze in another LO this morning, before I head off to do some Christmas shopping. It's pouring with rain, so I think we'll end up in The Trafford Centre with the thousands of other people with the same idea!

Week 9 - Assignment 1

The colour on this photo is not very good. The grey background is actually white IRL. Think it's getting too late to take photos - time for a rest.

Real World Colour 8

On a roll now - nearly caught up!

Week 8 - Assignment 2

Those that know me, will know that this LO sums up our family perfectly..... we are not the outdoor type! Despite our best efforts, I will probably never have lovely photos of the countryside in winter, or summer for that matter, but we sure had fun trying!

Week 8 - Assignment 1

What can I say about this one - except 'love the hat, Mum xx'

Real World Colour 7

For this assignment we were given the colour scheme and the journalling block, so this made it an easy, quick LO to do. Of course I could have thought 'outside the box' a little bit - but haven't got time for that LOL!

Week 7 - Assignment Two

For years, Mum had wanted to go to the 'Witches Galore' shop in Pendle, so a couple of weekends ago, we finally got around to going. We had a lovely day out an she bought us both a 'Pendle Witch' as a souvenir.
Apologies for the poor picture of the LO - haven't figured out how to fix the lens distortion yet.

Design Your Life - 'Catch Up!'

Today, I decided that I'd better catch up, on all the assignments that I was leaving until I came back from India. The photos aren't quite in the 'Taj Mahal' league, but those photos will follow soon.... we've just found out that our trip to India is still going ahead, as they've managed to move our whole itinery to March next year!

Papertake Weekly - Recipe Challenge

For this challenge you needed to use one ribbon, two rectangles and three small round embellishments. I have coloured Tilda with Prismacolors and Sansador and have used Fa La La PPs and a Stamps Away sentiment.

Stampavie - Week 5

For this sketch challenge I have coloured Tilda using Prismacolor pencils and Sansador. The PPs are Making Memories ' Fa La La', the scalloped oval has been cut with the Bigshot and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Sketch Saturday - Sketch 27

Guess what I've been doing all day? I can't believe I've only done 3 challenges in a whole day though! For this sketch challenge I have coloured Tilda and the bauble with Promarkers. The sentiment is Stamps Away and the PPs are Making Memories 'Fa La La'. Wonder if I've got time to squeeze in another challenge before DH gets home!

Penny Black - No Patterned Paper

This week's challenge, from Penny Black Saturday, was to make a card without using patterned paper. I have used Penny Black 'Jolly Christmas Kitty' stamp, coloured with Promarkers, and a Stamps Away sentiment stamp. The background was created using stamps and inks from Stamping Up.

Friday Sketchers - No:30

I have used Penny Black 'Christmas Dreams', coloured with Prismacolors, Magnolia sentiment stamp and K & Co PPs for this challenge.

Tilda and Friends - Warm and Cosy Challenge

I was supposed to be going to India last Saturday, on an all expenses paid trip that Tim had won at work, but due to the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, the trip was cancelled. Although it was very disappointing, I know from a safety point of view, that it was the right thing to do. They are going to organise a replacement trip for us, in the new year, so I am looking forward to finding out what it is.

I haven't done any of the Cathy Zielske assignments for a while, as I was going to wait until I came back from India with lots of lovely photos! Looks like I'm going to have to come up with a plan B!

I have made an ATC for this week's Tilda challenge, which had to fit the theme of 'warm and cosy'. The Magnolia stamps have been coloured with Promarkers and the PP is from Stamping Up.
