SOC - Wiz Relay Challenge #3

Greetings Family, Friends, and Followers,

In support of my 2014 Declaration to have a greater presence in the crafting world, I decided to take on a few more challenges this year!  As mentioned in previous posts, I'm taking part in a "relay" challenge over at Scraps of Color (SOC).  The image for Challenge #3 was the scarecrow (played by Michael Jackson) - and boy this was a challenge.  We had to include recycled or repurposed material and brick (wall) in our projects.  Well, the recycled/repurposed part was taken care of; but I was NOT prepared for the fight I endured with my Cameo's print & cut feature!!  Six scarecrows bit the dust, in order for at least 1 to survive!  I was almost ready to give up; but that inner voice urged me to give it one more try.  And the end result was a simple card, that met all the requirements! 

I reused the paper that stores use to wrap glass, and used it as "stuffing" for the scarecrow, and also for the quote.  The Einstein quote was from "brainy quotes".  I used my MS Scoreboard to make the "faux" brick wall, which is hard to see in this picture (sorry).  The image was provided by Robert Jackson; and was colored using Copic Sketch Markers.  The patterned paper is from my scrap stash (DCWV).

Thanks for visiting my blog, and letting me vent!  I hope you'll come back.  LOL.

Gotta Get some Courage

Hello Family, Friends, and Followers!

The Wiz Relay is going strong and SOC; and we just finished Challenge #2 - with the "Mean ol' Lion"! For this challenge, we had to include the word "Courage" on the project.  The twist to the challenge was to use either burlap, dry embossing or jute.  I had fun with this challenge; and I'm looking forward to the next one.  Thanks for visiting my blog, and looking at my entry!
