The challenge for October at 13@rts
is Color My World. I’m showcasing
this black and white photo of my boys with the beautiful theme song Lean on Me by Bill
My white background has a layer of gesso and
then it’s watercolored, splashed, and stenciled with Ayeeda mists in pastels (turquoise,
yellow, and salmon) and then stamped with text. The chip music and feather were also gessoed in white and
then painted with the same colors (the feather was also stamped with text). The
resist chip hearts were also white as well as the cheesecloth and fabric
alphas. The die cut leaf is from white cardstock that was dabbed with the
yellow mist and then stamped. The pretty Ayeeda flowers were also white. The photo
is matted on white paper that was stamped with text and then distressed and
inked with the yellow mist. I used the same yellow mist to color some texture
paste that was brushed on the background and then mixed with Ayeeda 3D powder
for some texture through a star stencil.
...and a close-up...
Rules of the challenge # 23:
1. Use a white background for your project. It can be cardstock, watercolor paper or patterned paper. You can have motifs and designs that are coloured but the base must be white and the white should still be visible after all your alterations.
2. Use a black and white photo. For cards or art journals, your sentiments/journaling should also be in either black or white.
3. The colours on your project should come from paints or mists, or any other colorants (distress inks, water colors etc). This applies to embellishments as well ie. if you use flowers or letters, they should be white or cream and you color them with your paints or mists. There's no restriction on what colours you want to use - you can have rainbows or you can have all black and white.
4. A song (title or words are ok, in your language of choice) as your theme/title.
5. Publish your project on your blog and add link directly to the post using Inlinkz tool at the end of this post.
6. Please add link and info about our challenge, where your work is published.
7. You may submit as many entries as you like.
8. You can enter with your project to maximum 2 other challenges and your work must be new, not published before our challenge has started.
9. The challenge ends on October the 26th at 23:55. Winners will be announced on October the 30th, 2014.
Very glad to have found this
lovely case for the week atCSI.
LIFE IS SWEET
TESTIMONY – inspiration words: delight and simple
This photo is special to me.As my journaling states, we were on a road trip in Norway, where we made an unplanned stop.There was a little park, and the simplicity of something so common together with my kids gave meaning to what little time we got to play.It was completely unexpected, but I will treasure that moment forever.
There is a tree stamped next to my journaling, and I have used a vertical strip of polka dot paper along with splashes of hot pink watercolor and circles of white acrylic paint.
have solved Case File No. 91 at CSI for this week.
let's shake it
five pretty colors of the Scheme have been used.
couple of clues for the Evidence are the wet medium in coral and black (color
mist has been sprayed and splashed along with splashes of black ink), and rings
of off-white are marked with acrylic paint and a spray bottle cap. They kind of
look like rings left from the glass of the milk shakes J Also, one of
the journaling spots is inside a speech bubble.
word “enjoy” has been used for journaling the Testimony : “Nov. ’04 –
sharing a shake with you is a delicious way to spend this afternoon”
inspired by songs lately. “Stubborn Love” by the Lumineers is already an
awesome song. But do you ever hear a song, and you know right away that you
have the perfect photo for that?!?! I love this photo of my boy, Emilio.
found the song perfect to scrap him a LO of how love comes into your life and then you have to
let go when the time comes. As painful as it may be, we find love and it makes
us really happy, but when the time comes, we learn and we move on. (This bit of advice I have
journaled on the orange tab to the left of the photo that you can pull out).
Thanks, OUAS, for the theme which could have gone in so many directions.
Nevertheless, it helped me to unload a piece of advice to my son. “I will never
forget” can apply to so many events in life, and although some of them are sad,
we wouldn’t have had it any other way…
My son, Johan, makes awesome
pizza and this one is called...
I’ve used all five colors of the scheme. The light gray
is on the background paper as well as a banner at the bottom. For the cardboard
color I have the wood pieces and the brown tissue under the photo.
For the evidence I have some number accents, circles,
metal (brad), and a ledger stamp on the background paper.
There is a circular journaling spot for the testimony
as well as the word “extra” in the journaling:
