As I generally host the first SSL of each month, I feel I always open my posts with “can you believe it’s June… August… October…” or whatever the month is but seriously, it’s November, people! That’s insane! But I hope you’ve all had a good week and you’ve got some chilling time planned for this weekend – and that it includes a little scrapping!
This week we’re lifting the wonderfully talented Agnieszka (Arte Banale). Her page entitled Color My World has all the usual characteristics of Agnieszka’s work… a gorgeous image, pretty brushwork, some carefully chosen elements, wonderful white space and one terrific design!
Straight in on the challenge was Guest Creative Team Member, Addie (agoymerac). I love that she switched up her lift with really pretty green and teal tones. This is a lovely lift and the photo is adorable!
Addie used the following products: Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 35 – products by Katie Pertiet and collection curated by Kayleigh Wiles; Every Moment Brushes and Stamps, Vintage Photo Frames No. 36, From My Bookshelf Overlays No. 01 – Katie Pertiet; Layer Works No. 368 (outer stitching edges) – Studio Double-D.
Jana flipped the design and was inspired by the soft pink tones of Agnieszka’s page, and true to Jana’s style, she rocked the pretty blends and the lovely image provides perfect pop top right! Gorgeous!
Here’s what Jana used: Vintage Artistry Paper Pack No. 01, Blendable Layers No. 02, Blendable Layers No. 33, Blendable Layers No. 96, Vintage Blendable Layers No. 03, Pencil Line Flowers Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Stacked Vintage Photo Frames No. 05, Vintage Taped Sentiments No. 02, Blendable Layers No. 43, Artistry de Blanco Element Pack, Typewriter Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 07, Terra Botanica Element Pack, Blendable Layers No. 40 – all Katie Pertiet.
Wendy took the opportunity to scrap this image of her pretty daughter. Like Jana, Wendy also switched to the right corner for her image… I’m sure there must be something about which way the brain works as to which corner one would select but, that aside, I love that the creators of all of these pages has selected the perfect corner – the one which allows the person/s in the image to be looking into the page rather than immediately off it… just a little design tidbit! I’m loving the green and earthy tones here and the vintage frame is perfect! A beautiful lift!
Wendy’s supply list: Vintage Artistry Paper Pack No. 01, Scribbled Overlays No. 02, Watercolor Blends Layered Template No. 14 (paint and leaves), Vintage Mix Clusters Brushes, Stamps and Layers No. 17, Typewriter Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 09 (leaves), Typewriter Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 10, Artsy Blend Layers Leaves No. 02,, Vintage Photo Frames No. 36, Wooden Alphabet No. 10, Fastener Basics No. 01, Fall Garden Element Pack – Katie Pertiet; Readymade Layers: Fall Borders No. 18 – Studio Double-D.
I followed Jana and Wendy, opting for the top right corner for the bulk of my detail – whatever that may mean psychologically! I really enjoyed this lift and it inspired me to scrap this child of mine who is turning 28 next week. Oh.my.days! I swear she was only, like, 6 yesterday! But getting back to the lift – it’s testament to Agnieszka’s page design skills that none of us who took on the challenge for this post deviated much from her design!
I used: ARToptions Krafty Paper Pack No. 02, Inked Border Strips Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 01, Monthly Memories Element Pack No. 08, Monthly Memories Element Pack No. 10, Monthly Memories No. 10 Painted Layers, Monthly Memories Element Pack No. 11, Color Essentials Pink Element Pack, Vintage Mix Clusters Brushes, Stamps and Layers No. 17, Pocket Cards: Layering Sentiments No. 01, Neutral Word Bits No. 03 – Katie Pertiet; Readymade Layers: Botanical Borders No. 04, Hand Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 23 – Studio Double-D.
