Scrapbooking Memories Masters Entry 2014

Howdy Peeps!!

Today I am sharing my projects created for the Scrapbooking Memories Master competition. My entry was unsuccessful but I am happy to say I did receive a HONOURABLE MENTION for my Art Journal Cover. So all up there were 4 tasks which needed to be completed. 

Task 1 - Single layout using a 5 x 7 photo.

"Halloween In Wonderland"

This was a little daunting for me using such a large photo but I really loved the finished page and that is the main thing.

Task 2 - Create a layout incorporating a non traditional scrapbooking item.

"Go Confidently"

For my non conventional item I chose to use and small wooden artist easel.

Absolutely loved this page, my kids are my inspiration.

Task 3 - Create a layout with journalling as the main focus.

"All Of Me"

This page was dedicated to myself and wonderful hubby using the lyrics of the beautiful John Legend song.

And finally..I was over the moon to receive and HONOURABLE MENTION for this one.

Task 4 - Create an art journal cover

"Art Life"

This was my most favourite task of all, I just let myself go to create this steampunk inspired cover.

So that was my entry....I really enjoyed creating them and totally loved and was 100% happy with the finished projects and in my eyes that is the main thing. 

And you will notice that there was no mixed media on any of my projects, well after being told I may have to change my ways or be left behind you will see my style has changed quiet a bit since creating these.

Hope you have a terrific weekend!!

I have followed your work for some time and have loved it from the start. Such wonderfully dimensional layouts and OTP and I learnt so much from looking at your work. I had noticed that it had changed quite dramatically in style and wondered why. I found the comments made to you quite upsetting, and its not even my work! Does it really matter if we don't follow trends to the letter? Mixed media that is all the rage at the moment can still be incorporated I think into your unique style, and thats the key, its your style and its AWESOME!!!! Your submission rocks - the Halloween layout is my fav :)
