We're back on the Cookin' Up Scrapbooking Creations forum -- come on over and join us! We just completed a full week of great Blue Plate Specials challenges. Our theme this month is "Pass the Remote" with inspiration from our favorite television shows, stars and theme songs.
We started off on Tuesday with Amy and "NCIS". Since the forensics experts use fingerprinting to figure out whodunit, Amy challenged us to use our fingers to paint on our projects. Here is her layout, using her fingers to apply gesso:
On Wednesday, Jan honored all of the masked heroes of television -- Batman, Zorro and the rest -- with her challenge to use a mask of some kind. For her example, she used a doily as a mask and applied mists to her background:
On Thursday, Jo drew inspiration from ""The Next Great Artist ... Work of Art" and challenged us to create our own altered work of art, or to use a piece of art in some way as inspiration. Here is her own work of art, an altered canvas:
On Friday, Rebecca focused on the show "DIY" and challenged us to use homemade embellishments on our creations. Here is her layout, using only embellishments she created herself:
Tamara' Sketchy Saturday challenge featured a Pencillines sketch. She honored Granny on "The Beverly Hillbillies" by asking us to use a photo of a grandmother on our work. Here is her layout, featuring a photo of herself as "grandma":
Bev finished the week on Sunday with a lovely color palette, inspired by the children's show "Big Bugs Band". She also asked us to use a baby, child, family member or pet on our layout. Here is her example:
Completing just ONE challenge this month will get you an entry into the Dessert Tray prize drawing -- and the deadline isn't until June 2. What are we playing for? A gift certificate to YOUR favorite online store! So come on over and join in the fun!
In June, Cookin' Up Creations will celebrate our THIRD birthday with a month-long Birthday Bash. Every day there will be a new challenge, as well as games and other fun. The party starts June 1!
