Chunky Scavenger Hunt Book Swap Page #1

Hello, hello, hello! How is everyone?! It is stiiiiiiill raining here! LOL I am not sure if it is ever going to stop! I must admit that the bleak, cool, grey weather has sparked some creativity in me though! I have been working on some of the many (many, many, many...I am hooked!!) swaps that I am in! I just LOVE productivity!

I am super excited about this project!!! It is called the Chunky Scavenger Hunt Book Swap! I signed up for 2 spots which in real time equals 12 4 X 4 pages (front and back!). The really, really cool thing about this project is that the pages need to be more 'artsy' than scrapbook-y!! That means not only stepping out of my comfort zone, but leaping!!! I am very comfortable with neat clean lines. Lots of symmetry and match-y match-y colors! This book begs for just the opposite! There is a list of items that have to be incorporated into these pages and the chunkier the better! Postage Stamps, sand paper, coins, washers, the color purple etc...Stuff is supposed to dangle from the sides and poke out of the bottom! The girls that have signed up so far all have amazing talent! I was super intimidated to do a page and after staring at the picture I chose and my blank pages for over a week I finally took the leap! This is my first page and it uses text from a book as it's scavenger hunt item! I chalked my edges to make them look antique-y and added a string of pearls to her neck and some chunky flowers! I used words from a magazine add also and mounted them on a color to tie in the color in her dress and the flowers! I made a dangley thing to hang from the edge from some misc beads from my collection! I have to admit that I was pretty pleased with it! I am looking really forward to the next page! : )

I will be back soon! Have a wonderful day! : )
