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.
