Blog Group Challenge...


Finally!! This challenge was given to us by Paula and we were to cut out, punch, or tear paper, glue it to a base, and run it through an embossing folder. I'm really pleased with my background, it was done more as a collage. Generally I struggle with collage, but this time it came together for me, and I really liked it. However...that was all that I liked. Because I like the background so well, I did not want to cover it, thus the problem. I need to learn to think ahead so that I don't put items on the collage in areas that need to be covered. I finished it once, let it sit for a few days because I wasn't happy with it, and then tore it apart and did it all again. I'm o.k. with it now, but I think I'll make another one and try to get it right - at least "right to my way of thinking" - lol. The sentiment is from K & Co., the pearls from Ellen Hutson, LLC, the ribbon is from Michaels. This was a fun challenge, and I love the technique.

Happy Tuesday, and have a good evening.

Hi Dru, I like the way you did Paula's challenge.. really nice take on it. I worked on the background, but haven't gotten to put on a sentiment. Yours just inspired me! Enjoy your day.

Oh Dru ... your creations are always so "warm" and "inviting" and this is no exception. BTW ... love your choice in music!
