This is my interpretation of the Gutter Girlz challenge to us:
THE PROMPT: I can't.
THE SONG: Heaven Help Me by Gretchen Wilson
I painted and inked the distracting background of the photo, traced the ric rac to get the wave on the pattern paper and curled the torn edge. One thing I love about Basic Grey papers is that the lines mix and match very well. I used Romani, Scarlet Letter, and Ambrosia here...love that!
I used some of the lyrics from the song as my journaling, which includes the words "I can't" and 2 of the flowers are trimmed in pink. Click here to see what the rest of the Dream Girls came up with.
Our challenge to the Gutter Girlz was to create a layout using the colors Black & Pink (in honor of Breast Cancer awareness month) the twists are no pattern papers & must use some lace on your layout. Click here to see what the Gutter Girlz came up with.
Here's my interpretation--This is my baby sister (on the left) and her best friend. They look like they could be sisters!
Thanks so much to Noella from Creatively Yours for coming up with this wonderful card sketch (#19)! I think this card just may be my favorite of all the ones I've ever made. Lovin' those Bo Bunny Believe papers. The chunky ric rac as well as all of the yummy trims and lace on the projects in this post are from savvy n sassy, I tell ya you can find some of the best ribbon in that store! I distressed the ric rac a little by inking it and fraying the edges.
I loaded up on Sassafras papers and chipboard on my last shopping trip at my LSS and I have to say that this line is too darn cute! Although I am no longer in the Top Designer contest, I created this LO to follow along-- I think it's so cute and whimsical. Kind of looks like a page from a children's fairy tale! LOL!
