Ok, Char. I decided to upload the photo last night because I felt as if I took a good photo of the layout inside my home. I learned some things from you ladies. First of all, I need to mist BEFORE I adhere my photos to the layout. Lol! The sticky note idea was awesome.(Putting stickies over the photos and elements that you don't want misted) However in this case, when I did that, I ended up with a journal box mask when I misted. That would have actually been cool if I had a white pen...then I would have wrote in the masked journal space. Anyway, the plan was to add my own journal spot, so I just placed it over my "oopsie area!" I don't 100% like it, but I don't hate it either, so I submitted it. But the mist won't get the best of me! I will attempt it again!

K. Thanks, my friend! I kept rereading it just to make sure that I comply with the rules. You know I'm such a cut up!


Please don't apologize for asking questions. One of the best things about this forum and most of them, is how helpful everyone is. Asking for clarification of rules is actually a good thing. I've been on here a few years now, but still a newbie compared to Melissa. I'm still learning things, trying things, and asking questions! It's part of the fun.



COMPLETELY AGREE!! I would be nowhere near where I am without this site. I am also a newbie and ask many questions that get answered from different scrappers from different viewpoints.

Yes! Do it again! That's what I keep telling myself after my misting mishap...although I still can't seem to get it right!! LOL! BTW you did a great job!

Thanks, my friend. I owe it to all of my "coaches" because I honestly thought about chickening out and omitting the misting.

Tessa-
I think you are the first scrapper I've met in a challenge from a non-English speaking country. I've met ladies from England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand-all English speaking. I find the aspect of so many different countries represented on this site fascinating! I'm also jealous that you are so fluent in English because I only have a single language. Thanks for not judging me.

I haven't quite decided if I'm going to mist it or cut one out on my Silhouette. I have a ton of "constructivist" shapes (the art movement that sunburst originated in its increased use) from my Photoshop class last semester, so I figured if I wanted to cut one, I could always make the shape, save it as a .png, and then import it into Studio. If you want, I can share the file on my media share site?

I was really excited when I saw yesterday's bonus sketch. I have been wanting to try the sunburst affect on a page. It was a bit of a challenge, but I am really happy with the results.

I have A LOT of love to catch up on. I was diagnosed with strep this past Thursday and it has been a rough week. I am starting to feel like I'm on the recovery side except for this cough that will not let me rest. I will slowly but surely catch up on love.

I somehow got 5 pages behind here. Thank you, thank you, to the ladies who stack! I've already commented on quite a few of these elsewhere, so I'm not as far behind as I feared.

I have had no time to scrap this week. Hate that. I'm hoping to get to work on the Week 1 Bonus today since I printed those pics last week. I haven't even chosen photos for Week 1 yet, and I'm just now seeing the Week 2 Bonus. I have been there, done that on piecing and sewing together a sunburst pattern, so I don't think I'll be doing that part of the bg - too much work. Unless...Maybe I can find pics that will work with the one already printed pp I have with that type of pattern. Otherwise, I'll just take the rest of the elements. Sorry - thinking 'out loud.' LOL I'm off to try and accomplish something. (It's the 7th, and I haven't paid a single bill this month yet, either. )

I'm working on my week 2 bonus sketch now. It's either going to be the coolest thing ever, or I'm going to abandon it mid-stream because it's going to take me FOREVER to do what I'm trying to do. But, I'm definitely stepping out of my comfort zone with this one.

Ladies, do any of you know of a paint splatter tutorial. I have finally been bold enough to spritz a little, but I love the look of the splatters, just not sure how to create them.

Thanking you in advance for any help on this!
