“Memories” – A New Month, A New Challenge
Posted on September 1, 2014 in Uncategorized
September 1st is here!! which only means that most kids will be going back to school, mama's will be breakdancing while waving those kiddos off to school
and of course it's the start of a new Color Challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang!!
As soon as I saw this picture I was in love!! some of the colors reminded me of my set " Industrial Chic" so I naturally had to pull it out! We do however have a "Limited Edition" set for the month of September that matches perfectly with the swatch!
What I love about the challenge at Lindy's is that you only have to use a minimum of 2 out of the 5 color shown which makes it easy to use what you have at home already. All details on how to enter are on the Lindy's Stamp Gang Blog.
Here is my take on the challenge
I was searching around my photo stash and I found some old photos from when I was a kid so naturally I chose the naked one on the swing " insert sarcasm face in there". My 6 year old Ava had to point out I wasn't wearing any clothes and couldn't stop giggling! Thanks to the age of the photos everything is covered LMAO!!! . Don't you just wish you had the freedom you did as a kid to sit naked on a swing! ( yes I know, all you can think of right now is the muffin top, saggy mom boobs, stretch marks and countless others imperfections) that freeing thought only lasted a millisecond....
On a happier note! I do love my old photos, it makes working on any project a little more enjoyable as it truly makes you go back and remember those times. One of my favorite lines to work with is Sunrise Sunset from Prima Marketing because the mixed media backgrounds on the pages are right up my alley!
The background I created in this layout is simply filled with super cool techniques! If you want to learn more about how I created this layout be sure to join our Mixed Media "Creative" Club where I will take you through the journey of creating backgrounds and a whole lot more starting Sept 15th!!!!
Here is the link to join and it's only $10/month!!!!!!!!!
Here are a couple more photos of the layout in more detail
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to head on over to the Lindy's Stamp Gang Blog to enter your submission to the Lindy's Stamp Gang color challenge!
Happy Monday Everyone!!!
