Some Layout Fun!

Hey everyone! It's been a while, kinda busy, good busy :) I'm now part of the work force, I am an employee of Hobby Lobby! A crafter's dream, or maybe nightmare depending on who you ask, lol!

I have two layouts here, the first is for the Swirlydoos challenge I'm hosting this month called Changes. The challenge was to go back to your very first layouts and update it to show how you've grown as an artist. Here is my original -

Sweet little Sophia back in 03 at just three years old. What a trip to see my early work!

Here is the updated version -

It's amazing to see all the changes in my work, from flat and bare to dimensional and very full of embellies and texture.

Next up is a layout for two challenges over at The Ugly Paper Challenge, yes you read right, and the Music Inspiration Challenge. For the uglies, you pick two ugly papers and an embellie and send them to a scrapper, and you get the same yourself. You then make them beautiful. The music challenge is like the one from last month, the person after you picks the song. Mine was Vincent from Don Mclean. I used a pic of Liz Taylor and pulled a verse for the layout.

Here's the uglies -

Mama mia what a clashing mess!  Now here's my not so uglies -

I used white paper as the base with some corrugate peeking through, misted stamped and texture pasted, then added border punched strips of the pink paper that I sprayed with Lindy's mists. The green paper I made medallions with and a butterfly. The little embellie I painted white then added the word beautiful cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations die.
Hope you like!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Hello Miss Paula, I have missed you and it is so nice to be back again and getting into the swing of things. Congrats on the new job would be both for me but the latter for my paycheck ;P it does amaze me and how we grow and change I guess it is the same for everything even if you look at fashions. Back in the day layouts were flat and boring. What really blew me away were the papers and what you did with them. Inspiring :D
