Our main purpose here at IE is to challenge ourselves, each other and YOU to take the creative process to the next level; to inspire growth and change in our scrapbooking beyond the mundane.
You can see all of Inspiration Elevator's previous challenges at on Facebook .
This month's challenge is issued by the creative Katherine Sutton. Katherine has a fabulous, eclectic style where she showcases all kinds of mediums and keeps the focus on her great photos. This month she has a warm seasonal challenge for us. Here it is in her own words:
" 'cos Autumn is all about layers of leaves and layers of jumpers (in the northern hemisphere) I would like to challenge you to add lots of layers to your page....this could be layers of paints, inks, stamps, papers, glassine paper, acetate....lots of lovely layers."
This was a fun challenge...instead of layering with the usual papers that I do, I chose to use Modeling Paste by Teresa Collins and paint. I used a Heidi Swapp heart mask to create layers of hearts and circles on the background of my watercolor papers and when it was dry, I then custom mixed some Guache paints to match the sky in the photos...I painted them on and added water and voila...pretty!! As luck would have it, I had some older Prima flowers that matched perfectly...(sometimes hoarding pays off!) and a little chipboard, some wood, some thread, vellum die cuts, sewn edges...gold pen, wink of stella on the wood and the hearts for a little pop, oh! Don't forget the little drips of Heidi Swapp Gold Lame mist...pretty much everything except paper! I really love how it turned out...
