I feel blessed to have had a win from WORDS & PAINTERY last challenge. Normally I wouldn't go into the challenge following - but I'd already started this one before I knew & before the STORMS and FLOODING hit.....
We are blessed to live right by the water. Usually!
In the afternoon, the path turned into a bit of a river..... by night time, when the tide was high...
...it got into our converted garage. That's my son's room. He's in the USA working, so no drama, really.
At its worst. Unfortunately, cars kept driving past and sending waves in! So we closed the gates.
The other end of the garage is my scrap room.
Luckily, we were up [this was around 1am] & able to move all the stuff off the floor.
And compared to MOST we got off REALLY lightly. Counting our blessings!
ANYWAYS......just thought I'd share that little journey!!!
Back to my Words & Paintery win!!
Just after/during all that, I found out I'd won a prize from them. A BRILL prize, from CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.
Not only is it a FANTASTIC store, but they were sooo quick and efficient at sending me my voucher.
So a HUGE thank you to you for that! Can't wait to get my wood veneers and stamps.....
So, this month's Words and Paintery challenge is this:
If you follow me, you'll know I'm creating a calendar. A FLOWER calendar.
Perfect for this challenge. But smaller. My page is approx 8x8".
Here is my page:
I kept close to the sketch, but on a smaller scale.
My banners were created using Sanna L's embossing with a run of different powders technique.
She did a great video [but long!] on a variety of techniques using stencils HERE.
The swirly stamp is from RUBBER DANCE STAMPS.
I've used a HEAP of bg stamps behind my photo and the DUSTY ATTIC fence:
Lots of Glimmer Glaze too... the Polaroid frame was a gift from Lizzy C:
And below, I created my title like a sign for the fence!
So, there you have it :)
Thanks for looking. Scrapping this size is certainly a challenge! Enjoyable, though.
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
