Challenge 32 - get picky....

here is what our Team A have picked to challenge Team B and you.......

Tamara - Hessian/Mesh
Kat - A Tag
Cheryl - steam punk imagery
Kerry - your own handwriting
Marie - black mist
Jolanda - a picture of your eye (s). what do they say/mean to you?
Celina - lace of any kind
Ashley - Doodling
Misty - metal

Remember you have to pick 2 or more to be in the running for the prize :)
And your inspiration:

I am pretty sure I got all of the choices (in some funky way) on this layout; except the photo of *my* eyes. I decided to use a photo of my daughter, that showcased her beautiful blues. I used a Balzer Designs stencil that I cut up, around the frame of the photo, and the title. The tag was embellished with a Jenni Bowlin stencil, and 3 different mist colors. :)

I managed to use all nine choices on this page. To create the trimmed edge, I used the EK Success Paper Shapers Doily Petals punch and instead of making the strips into flowers, I stuck them behind my page and bent them forward. I believe eyes are the windows to the soul!

I had a lot of fun creating this mystical, punky page. I really liked how the layering turned out with those Pink Paislee Phantom clear frames over my eye. The black mist and doodles didn't show up very well, but I attempted all 9 "pickys". Jounaling: Haunted by my own dreams.

A layout with all nine or all ten picks (both hessian and mesh). It's messy layers with many different colors and media. It's a lot of hilarouis fun. It's about that future vision I see - a steamy punk vision. ;)

I love the "get picky" challenge! All 9 are applied, that´s the fun with this, to try use them all:) I´ve played with gesso, modeling paste, black mist and akrylic paint.

The eye photo was shot off my computer screen using my iPod and the app. I added contrast and blurred the edges a bit using photoshop. I really wanted to stick with my current "fall color" trend. The woodgrain punchinella & handwoven lace are from Gauche Alchemy, chipboard gears from Dusty Attic. metal letters from Making Memories. I used watered down acrylic paint and a mascara brush for the mist effect.


Trick or Treat...its a trick! Not a layout but an altered dish soap bottle turned into a kitchen witch. The challenge picks used black mist, steam punk (ear ring), mesh (net cape), doodled (with Stickles on the stamped collar), metal (tea strainer head & metal hat ornament), lace (webbed front of dress and more lace on the bottom. Happy Haunting!
