Round 3....

Ok, I had fun with Round 3 of the contest... here's the project I did for it... Very out of my element, but I was very happy with it!

I chose to use oblique lines... which are lines that go neither vertical or horizontal, but lines that show movement. The swirls are symbolic of the breath/wind used to blow the bubbles. The actual bubbles in the photo are cut out with a craft knife and mounted on 2 layers of chipboard. Then there are bubbles throughout the page! It was so fun!!

AND... I just got the Round 3 results back... I DID IT!!! I made the honor roll again this week!!!!! There are now only 74 in the contest!! I'm SO excited!! Can't wait to find out what's the next class!!! I'll keep ya's posted! :)

Round 2... Texture and Dimention

Here is my LO for Round 2 in the Top Designer contest at It was a fun assignment! Make a LO showcasing texture and dimention.

For dimention, I used buttons as a frame for my photo, chipboard, layers of paper, lots of ink, layers of Prima flowers and a big brad. My photo is mounted on a piece of chipboard for added depth and dimention. My title is on a hand cut chipboard heart and this was put on using pop dots. I chose papers with great depth to them as well.

To add texture to my page, I used a cool cordory brad as my flower center and 2 types of ribbon, one velvit and one satin.

I'm very pleased with this assignment. I wanted to create something eith lots of texture and dimention, while still staying true to my style. I'm very happy with the result!

Dream Street Papers
Foof-a-la buttons
Fancy Pants chipboard
Prima flowers
Cosmo cricket chipboard "U"
Heidi Grace flourish
Imaginence Cordory brad
Misc other goodies

Results come in tomorrow!!! Hope to make it thru!! If not, I'm pleased with my project anyway! :)
