Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!

Face Painting at the Zoo

This page was for Splitcoaststampers Digital Scrapbooking Progressive Challenge 6.  The link is to Step #1 in case you'd like to see the progression but this post is the 4th & final step.  This was my first progressive challenge & I must say it WAS challenging. Sometime it's hard not to add something not listed but I will definitely play along again!!  Also you can probably tell but it's not digi.  Task 1 was to have 1 or several photos in the middle of the page to cover the entire width of the page with a small strip above & below the pic.  Then add another photo at the bottom left with something vertical on the left.  Task 2 was to add color or grunge at the top left so I sponged...I wished I would have used a spritz.  Task 3 was to add a strip so I did at the top  Below are more of the parts of the tasks that involved the photo in the lower left.

This section of the layout covers all 4 of the tasks.  Task 1 started out with the picture, which is popped out & vertical photo strip.  For Task 2 I added the easel, paint tubes, dog bone (thanks to Diane for the suggestion), library clip & tag.  The 3 circle mirrors, smile photo strip & string was added for Task 3.  The journaling at the right was part of Task 4 & is popped out too to create a shadow.
This is part of Task 4 which is to add a title. I used 4 different types of letters plus I added paw prints for the dog (there are 4).  The word "face" is a silver foil, "Painting" looks like water colors, "at the" are blue & green, "ZOO" is an animal print.
What a fun layout and yes, there will be a second page to this LO which will be more pictures from our visit to the Philadelphia Zoo in October 2011!!
