I've just realised that while I was off having fun on some days out, I completely forgot to tell you all about the new SJ Crafts challenge. The theme this time is 'The Olympics'! How could we not?!
Your project could use the Olympic logos for design inspiration, or use photos or memorabilia of any of the events, or you could choose to use sporty photos, like I did with this picture of my daughter and her friends running away from the waves:
I used Kraft Cardstock as the base, and spritzed it using Pretty Pink Mister Huey mist through a Tando Creative 'Sequin Waste' mask, to give a nice energetic splatter. That's further enhanced by the scattered pearls and gems! Crepe paper is layered beneath the photo to mimic the waves and the flowing skirts of the running girls. I really loved watching my daughter and her friends play like this, it brought back so many memories of my trips to the beach as I grew up!
For more challenge examples and details see here. The closing date is the 15th of August at 1pm, and the winner gets to choose a 6x6 pad of their choice from the ones in stock at SJ Crafts!
Also, don't forget to link up your scrapbooking projects to my Scrapbooking Soiree, to have a chance to win a Fancy Pants 'Beach Bum' 6x6 pad. You have until the 7th of August, and can link up any projects you've blogged about since the 8th of july!
Hope you're having a fabulous Monday! I'll be back tomorrow with my Month in Numbers, x
