Challenge 38 at Punky Scraps

At the turn of the year I and my friend Zima started a collaboration where we put together kits to each other each month. We pick something nice out of the stuff each of us has left over – things that we like but we know we will not use ourselves. The rules are that we will create a layout within a month where it’s visible that you used the kit, but you are allowed to add stuff yourself. This is so fun!!!!! Both to receive a lot of scrap stuff, the challenge to create with that, and to see what the other one creates with your “junk”. I never met Zima IRL and don’t know anything about her, except what she shows on her blog, and that makes this even more challenging.
This is what I created out of my January kit:
This layout is made for this month sketch challenge at Punky Scraps.
In my interpretation the three pictures is the three tags to the right of the picture.
I made an envelope that I put in the same place as in the sketch.
I finally included the shape of a circle…
…and the “trim/banner-shape” at the top.
And of course I splashed some paint on the background! I also worked with modeling paste, Glimmer mists, gesso and Distress Inks.
Are you curious about what was in the kit I received..? Well, here it is:
I hope you like this! And I especially hope that Zima likes it!!! I haven’t seen what she has created yet but I guess that she will post it this weekend. Pop over and have a look at it here!
…And I just have to say… Thank you Zima for this fabulous kit!!! And thank you for proposing this collaboration!!! It’s so super-fun!!!
Thanks for looking! Wishing you all a nice weekend!!!

    Helt fantastiskt va snyggt det blev!!! Tror jag får tänka om när det kommer till mina överblivna scrapsaker...! :D Jag menar, de ser ju jättefina ut på din layout! Gillar hur du lekt med färger & former och kladdat, som vanligt! Och att du fått in så mycket av grejerna jag skickade i en och samma layout är otroligt. Roligt att du fotade kitet, för det glömde jag själv göra... :)

    Vad använder du för att få till ränderna i gesson/modeling pasten?

    Kram Maria
