Create to Live challenge

photo 2

We would love if you would share with us and join us for our Create to Live Challenge.  This challenge is for you to use the color and message themes in the picture above.  Take some creative liberty here to create based on how this picture makes you feel.  What does it inspire in you?  What creative ideas jump out at you first?

I hope you are inspired by the inspiration board to join us, it's lots of fun!

For me it was the top row of colors and the idea of using stitching...I love faux stitiching.  Here is the page that I did for the June Create to Live challenge:
Susan K. Weckesser products
Grandma's Needlepoint - Just used the face of the little girl to create the fairy, and the stitching stamps to go around the page as a border.
Heartfelt Warmth - Used the house or in this case, the fairy house :)
Insta-Cute- the word Smile - used through the tunnel

Also entering this page in Simon Monday Challenge - Magic

after all what's more magical than fairies?

As you can see from this page, I have been working on my tunnel through my journal and here is a short video with me showing you how a tunnel works, for you must remember that what goes forward must also come backwards....you'll see what I mean when you watch the video. :)



 OH and I should have mentioned in the video:

When you create your tunnel, you must protect the page underneath by sliding a piece of paper under the opening so that sprays, ( like the Fairy dusting ) that I used with the Tim Holtz Distress Spritzer tool do not mess up the page underneath....* NOTE *only buy this tool if you want to have some serious FUN!

one more picture of the fairy dusting...lol

Those would be the perfect little books!!.. I know its a little off topic.. but as I watch you go through each page and the tunnel word is shown/revealed.. I can't help but think.. what if the tunnel word genrated just a few more pages.. YOU my friend.. would have a great little flip book for any little kid!! What a marvelous IDEA!!.. Can I get copyrights with the time stamp from my post info as it posts here? ha ha!! Love the idea... but my mind won't let me make any with you!! lolol WONDERIFICAL Project!! I love SUSANS stamps!!!

I love your beautiful page Sandee. The fairy and her dust are so sweet and whimsical. You have done a fabulous job on your tunnel book! Did you bind the book yourself or is it a art paper book? Oh, I love the shiny finish on the pages!

How precious! So many fun details. She is adorable and love the fun door and sentiment. The stitches are a great frame. I made my first journal page this weekend! I have a long way to go, and decided after the class to start one of my own.

Dang. I just typed a comment and it must have gone away.

I love the inspiration page that you've chosen for this project - especially the vintage image. Your design is very cute -- and I agree, everything is better with fairy dust.

Do you remember your Project Pinterest when you spray painted a chair (or maybe it was a cushion?). I'm spray painting my outdoor umbrella right now. The home improvement stores didn't have any "fabric" spray paint so they convinced me that the regular stuff "should" work. I'm almost done so we'll see.

Thank you for inviting me to your FB group!

Hugs,
Kay
