August Guest Designer - ARTastic Challenge Blog

I'm really excited to be the August Guest Designer over at the ARTastic Challenge Blog!  This monthly Australian blog challenge is super fun, and each month is based on an art piece along with a challenge item.

The art piece this month is by Joshua Miels, and the challenge is black and white plus one.

Even though this piece has a definite mixed media feel to it, I’ve interpreted this into my clean style by including lots of layers.  I’ve followed the artwork closely by using blue as my plus one colour. 

A monochromatic layout isn’t something you usually see in project life spreads, and I was lucky this week that my photos worked with this colour palette really well.  I’ve also interpreted the visual string elements in the inspiration piece to include stitching and some twine in my layout.

Be sure to enter the challenge this month over at the ARTastic Challenge Blog, I'd love to see your creations!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Project Life - Week 22

Is it just me or has anyone else been longingly admiring the Felicity Jane kits?  The postage from the USA to Australia though is crazy, and I'm already subscribing to Citrus Twist Kits so it's really not doable for me to get both.

But I decided to treat myself as a once-off when I saw the Kate kits released.  They truly are gorgeous!

This is my week 22 spread using the Kate kit.  Pink for days in this kit and I love it!

And these gold glitter alphas are the perfect size for project life! {Swoon!!}

Each of the 3x4 cards that come in the kit are backed with a neutral design so that you can use them as the background for journalling cards or even filler cards.  I always love having some kind of background print so this is awesome for me.

This week was a super simple design and came together quickly which doesn't always happen for me, so I was glad to call this week done and get out and enjoy some of the gorgeous winter sunshine we've been having lately!

Thanks for dropping by today.
