Card: A Foxy Note

This week's Some Odd Girl challenge was to use something with "C" in it. I chose "critter", "cardstock", "clouds", "colouring", and "chevrons". I also used a sketch from Prompt four of Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party for the layout of the card. I'm slowly, SLOWLY working my way through this class!

Card: Some Odd Girl "Odd Idol" One

Some Odd Girl is having a competition for "Odd Idol". There's a huge prize of stamps for the winner, determined by popular vote, and I like most of the stamps (some I have already) in it so I figured I'd throw my hat in the ring. The first challenge was a sketch, which looks just like my card. I didn't really bother changing it cos I liked it. For each layer of the sketch I matted the patterned paper with Kraft so it'd show up more. I used a whole 8.5x11 sheet of Kraft for this. My colouring on this is pretty crap. You'd think if I were really trying to win this thing I'd have managed to colour better, but I just didn't. Really depressing actually. Were this not a sketch challenge I'd go back and fix it, do a better image or something, but I really don't want to pull this all apart again. It took a long time to do. So, there you go, it stands. If I get voted into the next level it'll be great and I'll try to do a better job at colouring. I mean, really, what the hell is this?! SMH

Card: Kaylee's Dance Party

This week's challenge at the Some Odd Girl forum was to use brads. I don't have a whole lot of them, but I managed to find some from an old Club Scrap kit, nice neutral silver ones, so I went a bit nuts with the colours of this image. This one kind of coloured itself. I didn't have any direction at all, and frankly I thought she'd end up being blonde. I really like how her hair *did* come out though, and  the effect the BV20 is adding to the skin. I hope you like it!

Scrapbook Layout: You'll Never Sleep Alone

As far as trendy scrapbooking goes, I guess I'm a trendy scrapbooker. I have the Echo Park, I have the wood veneers, I have the little clusters of things and even the trendy style layout with only one photo. But I gotta say, trendy or not, I do enjoy this page. And it still has all the journalling I want in it, so I think it can all be done at once!
