Basic Grey challenge 27: texture

Just scraping in on time with this one for BG challenge 27: texture.

I've used granola papers. The piece that's been embossed with cuttlebug d'vine swirls started off the same as the one surrounding the glittered rub on (this rub on is slightly textured as well as glittered - can see it better if you click on the picture). Having dry embossed it, it was then swiped with blue iris chalk ink, sprinkled and then heat embossed with hydrangea blue/mauve moon glow embossing powder. The flowery sticky ribbon and the blooms add further texture.

I love doing the BG challenges - a lovely opportunity to use BG papers, not that I need any excuse - I missed a couple, but still intend to do them when I can, as this has been one of my favourite challenge blogs since it started.

Another CJ: Colour

I've just finished my DLO on another CJ - this time it is Maxine's (Maxia's), the last in the group on BF that started last July. Being the last entry in this CJ means that I have the pleasure and privilege of seeing it in its entirity - I don't think Maxine is going to be disappointed - the CJ is full of rich colour.

I've used DCWV papers, dymo letratag tape, blooms etc and ribbons and chipboard as requested by Maxine, who asked us to use any colours, but not black and white. I enjoyed the opportunity to make the mostof these bright colours.

This means that this particularly CJ group is at an end and my own CJ will be making its way back to me soon - I'm so looking forward to that.
And I can't complain, because I'm already involved with the new BF group and have Paddy's 'Nature's Beauty' to add to.

Flash of Inspiration

'Flash of inspiration' is the title of Carole's (cazat81's) CJ in the CBC group. Carole says: 'I look forward to seeing what the flash of inspiration is that gets your camera clicking away.'

For the first time ever, there are no patterned papers, no embellishments, no ribbons ... only photos on my DLO, including the backgrounds which are photos that have been faded (hard to see on here). I admit that I was tempted to add other things, but in the end I decided to let the photos speak for themselves.

Sorry about the flash shining on the bottom part of the printed tape.
