This Thursday It's ... Guest Designer

Guest designer banner
Well today is the day I can finally reveal my submissions as Guest Designer for the "This Thursday It's All About ..." Challenge, which was based around a quote by Monet about 'COLOUR'.

"Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment " ...


Lisa's Altered Art was the challenge sponsor and Patty kindly supplied a lovely selection of collaged images for the Design Team and myself to play with.


Project 1 :
Pink and green are one of my favourite colour combinations at the moment, so I made a gate fold card using K. & Co. text paper ...


... and lovely textured material scraps from my stash, matched the triple girl images quite well.
Green ribbon embellishments were added as a finishing touch.

Project 2 :
I used the cute Breast Cancer pink ribbon images for my 2nd project to make a "Reveal Hanging" ... (basically a 'hanging' which has bits to reveal LOL!) ... and adopted the Think Pink slogan.

My trusty scallop punch and various brads from my stash gave me the idea for the moving parts. The photos show it closed, (with all the bits hidden), and then fully open.

Apologies for the camera flash reflection ... it's the glossy photo paper I used for printing and my awful camera skills.
If you click on the images you should be able to see more clearly that all these cuties are carrying, or wearing, a pink ribbon.

I would like to thank the This Thursday Challenge Team for inviting me to be a Guest Designer and the sponsor Patty from Lisa's Altered Art, for allowing me to play with her collage sheets.
I only wish my time management skills had allowed me to do more than 2 projects.
