Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Elevator.
Our main purpose here at IE is to challenge ourselves, each other and YOU to take the creative process to the next level. We want to inspire growth and change in our scrapbooking; to stretch, sometimes uncomfortably, to create something fresh.
We are also honoured to welcome a guest challenger this month, team alumni, creative and busy Sue Sykes, a regular contributor to Canadian Scrapbooker magazine and manager of their sketch site.Here is her challenge for us, in her own words:
"We all know that the contents of our bags, whether it's a handbag, a satchel, a clutch or a backpack, reveals a lot about ourselves. This month, create a layout about the contents of your bag on any given day. Be sure to include the stories behind any unconventional items."
As a further challenge, use one of the items on your page somehow!
Here's a complete list of this month's participating designers! We encourage you to check out each designer's creation this month, then come on back and give the challenge a try yourself!
Guest Challenger: Sue Sykes
Now it's your turn to get creating about what is in your bag, and share your blog link at the IE blog. We would love to see what you were inspired to make!
This one was hard for me at first. I am not someone who scrapbooks about things like this usually. But I ended up loving what I did and it really made me giggle how much crap I carry around in my big yellow bag. I work a lot and usually am gone 12/14 hours a day. That bag has a lot of stuff in it day to day. It's actually too big. I can never find anything!
Using yellow as my main color was really fun. I just started playing with the background with gesso, acrylic paint and watercolors. I took out some yellow stickles and had fun playing with that on the wood veneer pieces as well.
Hope you will play along!
