The August SKWAD (Scrapbook Kits with a Difference) challenges are now live on the blog! Stop by and check out the dt’s fabulous examples and play along for your chance to win a fun scrappy prize! 😀
First up, we have the August Sketch Challenge. For my example, I went with Prima’s Meadow Lark collection. Everything used on my page is by Prima except the bit of trim from my stash (not sure who it is by). Here’s what I came up with:
This is the fantastic sketch by Annette Gearside:
The second challenge is the Inspiration Challenge. The Inspiration Challenge isn’t just about the colours – you may find yourself inspired by the image design, pictures or themes. You are also able to create an altered project, card, mini-album or art journal page for this challenge! 😀
Here’s what I came up with for the challenge (I was inspired by the colors and added white since it’s widely featured in the images. I also added scrolled chipboard pieces inspired by the chair and fence at the top of the inspiration image):
The papers and tag are Spring Jubilee by Pink Paislee, the cushies alphas are also by PP. The flowers are by Prima and the painted chippies are by Dusty Attic. I used a Martha Stewart round the page punch for the border.
Here’s the gorgeous inspiration pic for August:
