Tonight I have a layout to bring you for a couple different challenges.
Close-up of digi image used. "Boy with Flowers" from Digi Darlas. I colored him with SU pencils and then went over with a blender pen. I also fussy cut him out and popped him up with some dimensionals so he stands out a bit.
Close-up of my handcut dandelions. I just took my 2 different scallop punches, punched a scallop and then cut along each petal towards the center to create a dandelion like image.
Over at Paper Lovin' Gals 33... we have a black white inspirational photo of dandelions in their "Naked" state as my son would say. Well along with my black, white, red and yellow.. I was inpsired to show some bright and cheerful dandelions. Here is the inspirational photo to follow so you can join us!! You have until Wednesday, May 30th at 8pm PST to enter.
On a bittersweet note... this will be the last PLG challenge for a while. At least through summer. Life has taken over for a few of us. But we will come back with spunk and excitement!!
Over at Digi Darlas Challenges # 12 ...my friend KAREN came up with her very first CARD SKETCH to use along with a Digi Darla image for their latest challenge and DT call!! Well... I was very excited that I could use her sketch and make a scrapbook layout with it. The sketch and image that I chose is sooo perfect to tell the story of my son picking dandelions while his Dad was mowing the lawn. I caught him doing this and of course grabbed my camera. He was so serious and then he saw me and was sooo proud! He said he was picking flowers for me. :-)
Here is the card sketch to follow... Isn't this great????
I remember being scared to use digi images. I always thought you could only use them in all Digital Layouts or cards. Boy was I ever wrong!
I hope you like what you see and you have some time to join either of these challenges!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
