Challenge 33

Hello all and welcome to November on the Punky Scraps blog. For the first challenge of the month, we have two pieces of inspiration for you this week!

First of all, a quote which you can use in full or interpret in your own way:

and then this photo (don't you just love the splashes of colour against the dark background?)

And the projects from our DT Team A this month:



Made this L/O only for myslef.This is a pic where I was 40 kilo less in weight than I am now.And I really need to loose all the extra weight.It have made me sad and feel bad...and all the time I was feeling bad I just eating it away...and I'm so done with that feeling....and done with all the food...that this is the message to myself "move the f*** on" and do something about it....Well I did...went to the doctor and I have been loosing weight..:)It's a long way to go,but I really think (and feel) it's gonna work!! This pic is a sort of reminder and hangs on my mirror....everytime I want to get something to eat I see it and it helps.  

This quote really spoke to me in volumes, quite often I use to over analyse things wondering what could have should have been, but more recently have learnt that sometimes its quite healing and the only way to move forward it you just leave things where they fall and move the f&@k on!

I made this small framed postcard as a response to the quote above. I totally try to live by this philosophy! Life is about accepting things and moving on, not about dwelling on them or wondering what could have been. Although I tried to bring in the bright colours of the Times Square image, the project evolved to be mainly pink, red and blue. I don't have any regrets about it though ;-) 

I created the background using mists, clear tar gel, and coarse pumice gel. I just added the elements randomly and moved the page around to get the streaks of mist. I edited the photo in PS using the mosaic texture and added the quote to it digitally.

I created this page by putting four 6 X 6 pieces of Colorful Life paper together, brushing acrylic paints in purple, red, and aqua on it, stamping various textures on it, and adding some fragments stippled with alcohol inks to it. The picture has some pieces cut from it and there are staples on the paper joints. I added some star sequins and chipboard alphas.

The quote really struck a chord with me after a particularly bad few days with my 7 year old son. He has aspergers syndrome and his thought process is very different which often results in frustration and temper flare ups.  Drawing a line under a bad day can be difficult sometimes but I shall remember this quote in future and definitely try and MOVE ON. Tomorrow is a whole new day!

I used a Collage Press shaped piece and splashed red paint on. The photo is matted onto a torn piece of black magic coredinations. The rest are just a few journalling bits/embellishments from my stash inked around the edges with distress ink.

This is a friend of  my niece going through some rough changes right now, the quote inspired me to make something uplifting for her!  The frame and title letters are from Scrapfx.  I used a transparency behind the frame and put crackle accents to get a shattered glass look but its kind of hard to see in the photo.  TFL!!!
