Progressive Scrap at the Just Art site

By on 1-08-2015 in Digital Images + Collage, Life Book 2015, Mixed Media

Progressive scrap on the Just Art site gives us a chance to use what we have in our stash, more flexibility and a bit longer time line which creates a fun challenge. Here are the first three months layouts. I have chosen to use my own kits in each of these pages and you can find the kits on my blog here.

apple picking with the family
We had a pair of pretty crab apple trees on the property that we picked almost every year after the first frost. They always made great apple jelly.

Sam and the boys
Sam was a cockatiel with a whole lot of character and grew up with the boys. This page is all about this wonderful bird and his interaction with the family

Fairies are in the glen
I chose these two vintage postcards for this page. The scrap was a bit different this time and we didn’t really know where it would lead but a lot of fun guessing.

Sunset, my geometrical template challenge

This template tutorial is one more from Chris Spooner. Chris creates his template in Illustrator Abstract Geometric Template and since I have only PSE 11 I made my own to give to those who wanted to play with it. The results from the challenge are spectacular. Sunset is my work up and example. This photo has it’s original colouring, no tweeking needed. The sunsets in the country are spectacular. The poem by Emily Pauline Johnson captures it perfectly.

Addition to this challenge, updated October 19 … there were so many beautiful entries into this challenge at the Just Art site that I made another globe for them, this time with horizontal lines

Mr Handsome

By on 1-08-2015 in Digital Images + Collage, Life Book 2015, Mixed Media

Mr Handsome is a heavy horse, one of the lead horses on a team of 6 who looked back at me when he heard my camera and gave me this beautiful photo showing the inquisitiveness of a powerful horse. The page was created for the Just Art site for September’s “use everything” challenge. Kit was supplied by Anne Marie of A-M Designs.
