Saturday's Workout: bandana technique

I saw a challenge on Saturday's workout which involved the 'bandana technique', a tutorial for which can be seen here.

I thought I'd give it a try, but I think it was stupid trying to do it quickly at this time. I chose what I thought was a simple stamp, but, on reflection, I'm not sure it was a wise choice because it has straight lines and my white lines aren't straight (mainly because I rushed them). Anyway, I've had a try and now I know what to expect I think I could make a better effort with a bit more time and concentration.

For the blending of colours I used Stazon blazing red, cactus green, mustard and saddle brown.

Tracey's CJ Tag

The theme of TraceyR's CJ on BF is 'tags' - each person in the group is invited to decorate a chipboard tag in whatever way they choose.the light is bad, but I need to get this into the post in the morning.

The papers are BG sultry and the rub ons are Kelly Panacci. Edges inked with chalk inks, with the addition of a Brenda Pinnick chipboard square frame and some ribbon originally bought from CBC.

The scans show both sides of the tag, which obviously are the same size, although they don't look like it here!

DLO on Melissa's CJ

It's my turn to do a DLO in Melissa's fab CJ for the group on CBC.

Melissa chose 'My dream' as her subject and said, 'I would love to hear from you all what your dreams are. Big or small! Whether you have fulfilled any yet. It could be your childhood dream or most recent one! The possibilities are endless really.'

My DLO is all about a dream come true when I went to Bermuda. I've simply used some DCWV backgrounds and produced the journalling and photos on computer, adding a few buttons and doodling.

You can get a better view of the journalling by clicking on the pictures.

I enjoyed doing this, as it brought back many memories.
