Movement - revised!

Our Dodo Scrapchicks meeting had the theme of movement this month, and on the day I came up with this . . .

The photo is not good as the lighting was not good - and the glossy accents hadn't dried on "S". I used white acrylic paint for the background, stamped with orange and grey acrylic paint using the new Hero Arts stamp CG298 "Life of the Party dots".

But the white paint on the black draws the eye away from the photos, and so I changed it to what I had originally planned . . . a white background just with the dots. This time I used distress inks. Had to change the "splash" title as the white would have been lost on the white background.

And I thank Susan from Simplicity who showed her revisions which gave me the encouragement to do it myself! Certainly don't get it right the first time every time.

Scrap RDV Monochromatic Challenge

I don't always get to make the challenges at Scrap rendezvous but I love the theme this month . . . Monochromatic! And there is so much good information there on colours, the colour wheel, how to combine colours etc. So kind of the 3 lovely ladies to share - it's like going on a course!

So I may make a rainbow of creations by the end of the month, but I start with green. And I made a card using a borrowed set from Annabelle Stamps with the dragonfly from Hero Arts. I enjoy this set so much I may have to get one myself - the detail is so fine.

And then a LO for my London trip . . . where I loved the GREEN and spaces in the middle of such a big city. I used stamps from Hero Arts, Inkadinkado and Club Scrap. (Will try to get a better photo  . . . can't really see the details of the stamped squares nor the coloured background)
