So this week, I decided to try to combine three challenges!!! And I have to admit, it was a little daunting at first figuring out exactly how to do it. I had many ideas floating around in my head, but they all seemed too complicated. And of course, I waited til the last minute for one of the challenges to finish it.
The Paper Girls challenge was to get messy - that was pretty easy to figure out, it was just what shape I was going to mask.
The Crop Chocolate challenge was to celebrate summer, and it had to incorporate water - that was easy, I had pictures of my DS from swim lessons last year to scrap.
The third was a challenge from two of the ladies at Crop Chocolate - to scraplift a LO they did on a retreat they went to. The LO included a large heart made up of different size circles of different colors and patterns. You can see the LO and the story behind the challenge here. This was the hard part. I didn't really want a heart on a swim page, so what shape could I use???? At first I was thinking wave, but I got scared off by the sharpness of the wave end (yes I'm a wuss sometimes). Then since I picked pictures of my DS going down the water slide, I thought: what about a splash shape?
I also used the ink and sponge on the edges of the argyle paper to diffuse it a little bit against the rest of the patterns - it was standing out a little too much for my liking without it.
