There's a new tangle challenge this week at I am the Diva blog spot. Our challenge this week was to create a tangle using a new tangle called "Assunta" which you can find the directions to HERE. I played around with it for a while, but I never could draw it using the "formula" given. I finally resorted to just eyeballing it...and drawing each "bloom" individually. I'll have to tell you that my initial try was really bad! It found it's way to the circular file rather quickly! Here' what I ended up with for my entry:
Thought I share a layout I finished this weekend too. This is my beautiful little granddaughter, Maggie. My daughter came for a visit in April and they all went to the beach for a few hours on Saturday morning. Doesn't she just look adorable in her little teal bathing suit?
The title work and the waves were both cut with the Silhouette. I've just learned to "weld" my letters together and I'm loving all that I can do with it. The sand pail and the ball were also cut with the Silhouette. I've read that there's a new 12" width Silhouette coming out...and I'll definitely have to have it! The waves were cut from the Echo Park Splash collection. (the background is also Echo Park Splash). The title, ball, shovel, and pail were cut from white card stock and colored with Copics. I tore a small piece of white paper for my "sand" and colored it with Copics. Then I added a light layer of glitter. The sand in the bucket is actually micro beads adhered with very sticky double sided tape. On the tips of each wave, I added a touch of white puffy paint and after it dried, I set it with the heat gun and the white puffed up....thought that was kinda cool. I love that in the one picture, Maggie looks like she's throwing the ball! I also added a bit of doodling at the corners of the photos to "frame" them.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your comments! They make me happy! Until next time....
