I'd like to share my entry to SM Idol 3 Week 4 which asked us, contestants to do the following:
#1 Use the word, "PLAY" to inspire you on your layouts.
It does not have to be your title or even part of your journaling.
Use the word to inspire you on your theme.
#2 “PLAY” with your patterned papers and embellishments!
Alter AT LEAST one of the patterned papers you are going to use on your layout.
How do you alter? You can punch holes, you can doodle on it, spray glimmer mist, paint it, make it look entirely different! Something that we wouldn't recognize the paper you have used.
Alter AT LEAST one kind of embellishment you are going to use on your layout.
How? Add brads or blings on your buttons, or apply rub-on on your ribbons, punch shapes on your chipboard etc.
#3 We want to see photos AT PLAY, not necessarily kids playing. You can scrap about you and your hubby at play! Be imaginative when you PLAY.
#4 Use any (or all if you wish) of these colors:
How I altered my patterned papers:
How I altered the Prima felt embellishment:
Description of my LO:
For the photos, I chose ones that showed the LB Scrapaholics "at play in front of the camera". These were taken during our annual Easter Egg Hunting last April 2009. While our kids were busy playing, we didn't let the chance pass and played, too. What better way to play but to have our photos taken while having fun with our different poses. I incorporated 4 photos on my LO to showcase our different poses in front of the camera.
As for the papers, I altered two patterned papers (Fancy Pants and Pink Paislee). For the Fancy Pants pp, I stamped the border of the paper with yellow acrylic paint using a mesh, after which I painted with crackle paint. When the paints dried up, I distressed the portion with paint using a nail file. For the Pink Paislee pp, I did some masking (I placed swirl chipboards on two sides of the paper, opposite each other then used blowpens to achieve a misting effect.), stamping (flowers using bronze ink, swirls using orange ink and the border using black ink), doodling ( see the bigger stamped flower), and addition of glitter glue to the flower center.
As for the embellishment, I painted the all black Prima felt with different colors, green for the leaves, yellow for the flowers (also added some glitter glue), blue for the bird and brown for the branches.
I chose to use all the three colors required. These colors may be seen in the papers and embellishments used.
Materials used: Patterned papers - Fancy Pants, Pink Paislee, Cosmo Cricket and Provo Craft; cardstock - Bazzill; alphabets - My Little Shoebox, American Crafts Puffy Thickers, Heidi Swapp chipboards; Prima felt and flowers (teal and green), Imaginsce Tiger lily flower (yellow), Petaloo flower (orange), metal conchos, AAS pearl, trim, lace, mesh, blings, DMC thread, medium used - acrlylic paint (Making Memories), inks (colorbox, versafine), diamond glaze, blowpens, crackle paint, glitter glue
Journaling: When big girls play (title)... it spells FUN and SILLINESS! Laughter is all over the place. It feels like they're in their teens again. It means forgetting about their blues. April 2009, Humanties, UPLB.
Luckily, I made it to the next round together with these fab ladies:
