Country Girl Jun 2018

Although I loved the inspiration painting for the June 2018 Artastic challenge I struggled to balance the colours on my page effectively. Still not happy with it after hours of trying!

But, its still a page!

Seal of approval Jun 2018

When I paint, I really don't think much about why I'm painting what I'm painting, why I've decided on that topic, why I've decided to paint it in that way instead of the like the inspiration scene or photo. But when I finish it feels right and exactly what I was looking for. So this is what I did my page on - my recent artwork and the photos that inspired them. I even shocked myself how different they are!

CSI #255 challenge
The dreamy colours for the CSI #255 were hard to ignore. I just had to do a page with them! To follow the inspiration I also used a seal, cupcakes (instead of donuts), bows, and clouds like the swirls on the girl's dress.

Beat That! May 2018

I really found this challenge challenging from ArchiScraps this month. Nothing came to mind until like 3 days before the end of the month, so naturally, I just ran out of time to get it in. But I still created this page inspired by my cousinette Olive. Both her sister Violet and Olive are pocket rocket skiiers, so I needed a page that reflected this plus Olive's big win against the boys which she was so proud of.

The Young Lady May 2018

It's been a while since I scrapped one of my cousinettes, even though there are plenty of photos of them growing up (in the USA). So, here is a page featuring Vi (Violet) and how much she's grown over such a short period of time. It seems like only yesterday she was born!

I really liked the Artastic challenge, but wanted to try and not go overboard with flowers, but find some that fitted Violet and her amazing life so far. Really happy with the result; clean cut and minimal.

Marvellous May 2018

I was feeling joy and excitement in May, having moved up a level in my fitness program and moved ahead in my artwork as well. I thought this would translate across into my digital scrapbooking, but I was so distracted by a TV show I was watching (home improvements) and their terrible interpretation of one team to make a bedroom with the theme 'like a rap video' that it so disgruntled me that I set out to make my CSI 253 page into this style and correct their blunder! Yes - strange I know, but there you have it.

I therefore added BLACK to the palette, but it still seemed to work. I used flowers and leaves, and gold and metal like in the scene.

Rap music videos are very similar. There is this 'urban grunge' mixed with expensive sleekness.
