Thirty minutes!?! That is impossible for me to begin with, but then she added additional requirements:
- you had to use some kind of medium,
- the main colour had to be brown, and
- you had to include some sort of handmade flower.
Well, these sort of challenges always freak me out. To be honest, while I work well under pressure for my other creative deadlines, this sort of quick-draw-not-in-my-own-space-with-ALL-of-my-toys kind of thing makes me twitchy! The perfectionist in me constantly cringes because I don't have time to move everything around at least six times - I'm getting better but still can't just start sticking things down before I know what the entire thing is going to look like first!
So... I didn't finish in 30 minutes (surprise, suprise!) - in fact, it took me nearly 3 weeks before I unpacked it and added the finishing touches at home!
Geez, at this rate, I may have the kids' scrapbooks completed from birth to age 7.36, before they leave for university...
But I did get the basic bones of the layout done:
Supplies used: Coredinations cardstock; Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon patterned papers; McGill punch; My Favourite Things Dienamics dies; The Crafter's Workshop stencils; Golden modeling paste; October Afternoon alpha stickers; DecoArt paint; ClearSnap Stephanie Barnard and Ranger Adirondack mists; KaiserCraft rhinestone; miscellaneous half pearls and watercolour paints from my stash.
All I added at home was some watered down paint to the texturing (too stark white - had I not been pressed for time, I would have mixed the paint with the modeling paste first!), added the journaling and a few doodles.
