Challenges #317: Inspired by a Song

Hi and thanks for joining us to check out and hopefully play along with our new challenge!  and it is.... Create a project that is inspired by a song title, line, or is the theme of the project (ie concert, etc)
Post your project with the linky below.
Perfect timing for me  as I have just been to see Journey and Def Leppard in concert.
Have loved them both for over 30 years! (yes showing my age haha!)



For this project, I was inspired by the Van Halen song, "Jump."  So I decided to feature a picture of my girls jumping into my pool at the start of their summer break when they were little.

For this challenge I used a song title from my all time favorite group, Fleetwood Mac.  My darling hubby and I have been married for 30 years as of June 11, 2018 and I will never stop loving him!

Amanda


I would say probably 85% of my scrapbook layouts are inspired by a song! I am constantly using lyrics, titles, etc for my layouts! For this one of my pregnant with my first child in 2012 I used the lyrics "pretty smile" from Carrie Underwood's song Cry Pretty as my subtitle.

I created my title with a little help from Coldplay and their song Rainy Day.

Challenge #316 - Magical

Hey guys!  Heather here...so this week's challenge has a bit of a "magical"theme...and anyone who knows me, knows that means I am going to do a Disney layout!  Of course you can do anything you like...Harry Potter, wizards, unicorns, mermaids...whatever is magical to you!

I ended up doing some hidden journaling on my layout because I had a very specific story I wanted to tell and wanted to make sure I had enough room.  You can read more about that on my blog as well as find a little more "magical" inspiration ;)

For now here is my layout and some magical inspiration from the Design Team as well!







This is my favourite magical place - Disney World! 





Amanda

Our first visit to Disney was definitely magical! These were two of the first things we saw.



I have created a card using a magical unicorn.



For this challenge, I created a 4 x 6 mixed media page for my art journal featuring a hand colored image of Princess Tiana with fairy wings.

Challenge 313-Washi Tape

The challenge this week is to use Washi tape on your project.  For this challenge use at least two different pieces of Washi tape on your project.  For my project, I use my enormous Washi stash to decorate my planner spread for the week.  I was able to use three different rolls on this spread, two of which had never been used before.

So, pull out your Washi tape stash and let's see the creative ways that you choose to use Washi tape.  Don't forget to link up your project when you are done.

Challenge #312- Found (Upcycle/Recycle)

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week's challenge.  Tammy here as your hostess for this challenge.  My challenge is to upcycle or recycle an aspect of your project.... The design team has some great examples to get you started....Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I found some paint chip samples on my desk and thought they would be great to use with my die cuts.  I cut out the feathers and the HELLO sentiment from the chips and then just added some embossing, twine and Nuovo dots.


For my "found object," I used a piece of pre-wrap my daughter had wound around her head during her soccer game.  Not only did it help hold her hair back during the game, it also worked as a bow for the tags on my project.

MAJO

I used a Kleenex Box and inked the backside in several colours. After I stamped some images for more texture, I cut them into "Artistic Trading Coins" (Diameter 2.5"). I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and added a little sentiment.

This week in honour of Mother's Day we are celebrating the moms,

For me, it is an especially fitting theme as today is my mom's birthday!

For my project I created a layout about my mom and I from when I was young.
