Make Up Monday 5/6

Spring into Summer kicked off this week at Cookin Up Creations.  We had a week of great challenges.  Here is a recap of those challenges

What's New Wednesday-5-1/13- Shades of Blue

Annie challenged us to:

For this challenge I would like you to be inspired by the beautiful shades of blue skies we love so much. Shades of Blue are so trendy right now. From the dark Navy to the lightest pale Teal blue.

So for the what's new part of the challenge - Let's look at what is trendy right now - like layers, ombre, journal cards/spots, tags, vellum, stitching (machine/hand), stamping, cameras, cutout (title or backgrounds), even rub-ons (are making a big comeback), misting/droplets, watercolor (with watercolor paints or mists), and flairs.

I would love for you to create a project using shades of BLUE and 1 or more of the What is Trendy mentioned above. 



Toss Up Thursday 05/02/2013 -- Paint!

Barb challenged us to:
Today, my challenge is to use paint in some way on your project. If you mix two colors to make a new one, or mix your paint with white to make it lighter or tone it down, so much the better. Get creative -- spray it, fling it from the end of a brush, drip it .... just have fun with it!

Friday Focus 5.3.13 Wire

Tamara challenged us to:
o when I first heard we were going to do Spring, guess what I thought of? Yup an actual Spring and out came the wire. Today we are going to focus on wire. I made my title out of colored wire. Twisted strands of wire together on the strip of pattern paper at the bottom. Then what would the gorilla be without wire springs popping out? Use your creativity and let's see some wire on those projects.

Sketchy Saturday 5-4
Alterdiva challenged us to:
Today's challenge revolves around the change from Spring to Summer. I am re-using (yep I said it) re-using a sketch that I have previously used before. I loved it so much that I re-purposed it! And the challenge involves using a little Spring and a little Summer. I want you to create a layout that involves some elements of both. In my layout, I used a pastel background and patterned papers with a summer photo and summery weather themed chipboard! To re-use the sketch, I simply angled the layout itself! Hope you like!

Sunday Inspiration 5/5
I challenged you to:
I love this time of year...the flowers are blooming and color is everywhere. Mother's Day is fast approaching so I challenge you to be inspired by flowers, color, and mom and create a layout or 2 cards.

Don't forget to upload your creations for a chance to win this month's prize. Be sure to check out this week's new challenges!
