Papercrafter's Corner has a weekly challenge that I've been wanting to participate in. Usually the week is over before I remember to make something. When I saw their reminder post I sat down to make something. You can make whatever you want for this challenge using the inspiration photo.
First I made a journal page. The heart and wave are hand drawn. I painted it with watercolor crayons. Then I pulled out my stamps...Unity, Making Memories, Tim Holtz. I almost didn't post this. The optional part of the challenge is to use the number 40. (It's their 40th week) When I tried to erase the pencil marks the ink smeared. Then I tried to cover it with a music stamp from 7 Gypsies. That smeared even worse. Out came the gesso. And more painting. Now I like it!
While I was waiting for the gesso to dry I decided to make a card. Just in case the journal page didn't work out.I used the colors from the inspiration to make it. A long time ago dry wall tape was very popular for papercrafting. Companies began making it in different colors for scrapbooking. I remembered I had a roll in orange and that started the process for my card.
If you ever want to play along the challenge is posted on Monday.
