20th May -Tic Tac Toe

Good Morning! Welcome to another chalkenge!
Today's challenge is....

Tic Tac Toe; made by DT member Denise. You can pick any line you like to create with.


Here is what the DT picked and their layouts...

I used the diagonal row: heart - blue - circle




I use Paint-blue-border punch.


Lisa-Marie

This is the first time I have taken part in a Tic Tac Toe challenge... and I LOVED it!  I went diagonally and chose Circle Blue Heart.  This is my precious little girl all dolled up for her cousin's 21st birthday!  I can't believe how fast the time is screaming by!  I hope you like it!



I love Tic Tac Toe challenges and this is a great one! I have used the diagonal row of Heart, Blue, Circle. I have used some texture paste and a circle stencil, flairs, a round chipboard embellishment and a half circle banner, lots of blue papers and embellishments, a chipboard heart and a Charm’s Creations denim felt heart.

I hope that's inspired you to give it a go. We would love to see your layouts, just link them up to the side bar. You have until 3rd of June to do so.

Guest Designer - Sue Smith

"Thanks, Anna for inviting me to be the Guest Designer for May. I loved this stencil challenge. I have used 3 slightly different stencilling techniques. The first, using Distress Oxides for the border vines, and then through the back of the leaf die for the die cut leaves. Lastly I added some colour to gloss gel for the word stencils.
I hope you can find something here to inspire you! "


You have until 3rd June to link up your layouts for a chance to become our guest Designer for the month.

A bit of a special post today as we are joining up with Stick it Down today.

If you haven't heard of them before they are a sketch challenge blog, you can see them here.

For the challenge today ... We have sketches from Stick it Down and a challenge from us.

Here are the Sketches - Card, layout or double layout.



and from us please use a ....

Song Title; we want to see you use a song title on your layout, you can also use the lyrics too if you like.

Here are the takes from the design team....

Anna
I have had these photos on my desk for a while now and when I saw this layout sketch I knew these would work well on it. I moved the design in a bit, made my own little fishing rod and as I didn't know many fishing songs I googled song titles that would fit it, I went with Just Fishin' which fits prefectly.

11th February - Sketch

Today's challenge s a ...

 Sketch - Made by me (Anna), inspired by Lisa-Marie's Sparkle and Shine layout.

I hope you like it! Here's what the DT did with it....

Denise





Lisa-Marie


I'm pretty thrilled that a previous layout was inspiration behind this gorgeous sketch challenge!  As you can see, I layered like a mad thing - as usual!  This pic is of my daughter (front and centre) and all her cousins - my SIL had arranged a photoshoot and printed up a whole batch of canvases as a surprise for my folks for Christmas last year!


Guest Designer - Judy
I love layers and textures and have used both in this layout. The background card stock has been misted and stamped and painted with watercolours before applying the final layer of gesso through a text stencil. I have used some tapestry mesh in the layers to give texture here too. Thanks for the opportunity to share my layout as a guest designer this month.


I hope that has inspired you to have a go and join in, if so please link up your layout to the side bar.

Happy scrapping!
