Challenge 50

Hello, Punky Scrappers!  We are FINALLY back with a challenge!  Woo-hoo!  

Today the challenge is to use this picture as your inspiration piece:

Here is what the team did:

I was inspired by the frames and the sketch/set up of this...I love the arty feel of it.  


           The colors and the golden frames inspired me! I used two different iPhone-apps for my photo. The background was created with distress stain on a stencil, then I stamped the rings using two different-sized bottles and distress ink pads in two colors.  The buttons laid on my desk from when I cleaned my closet the other day, of course I saved the buttons when I threw my old clothes away... 


The design of the inspiration photo inspired me to add the reflection of the larger photo at the bottom; to add the splatters, frames and stamping; and to use a kraft paper background.

 I loved the 2 clusters of mirrored elements in the sketch most. I tried it but I got
stuck so I went with this solution instead. I'm thinking of redoing this
 page as I'm not satisfied- it's amazing how complicated that sketch really is!
Stamps for Cocoa Daisy, Paper Source and Yellow Owl Workshop,
Pins from A Flair For Buttons, Paper from Basic Grey.


 This was definitely a challenge, and I was fascinated with the elements on the sketch. Usually with a sketch, I follow it loosely, but in this case, I tried to follow it closer, because I had some things that worked perfectly. I definitely don't think the end result fit the vision I had for it , but I do think it's "funky punky."


We hope you'll play along with us this month and we can't wait to see what you create.  Remember to link your projects up on the sidebar!
