FALL CROP 2012: Challenge #14 - Messy!

FALL CROP 2012: Challenge #14 - Messy!

Postby anja_wade » Oct 28th, '12, 1:57 pm

I always have a great time at the fair but I always leave feeling sticky and dusty. Life's like that, I guess. Sometimes the best things come with a bit of a mess.

This challenge is a journaling and a technique challenge.
1. Make a mess on your layout. Distress, wrinkle, paint, mist, hand-write your title, journal in crooked lines. Do something a little messier than usual for you.
2. Reflect the messy theme in your journaling. Write about something messy, but good. It can be something deep, like a difficult experience that made you stronger, or not so deep, like a really fun day that was messy in some way. It can even be a day at the fair!

Here's the project I came up with. The journaling is a little personal, so it's tucked into a pocket...

Jody's layout features some fun misting and crooked elements...

And Emily stepped out of her comfort zone with some fun paint spatter...

All Entries must be new creations to be eligible for the prize. Make sure you upload your creation to the Cocoa Daisy Gallery with CHALLENGE #14 in the title. After you have uploaded your project, please link your creation to this Challenge thread, so we know you've completed the challenge.

You have until November 4th, 8pm Eastern to complete the challenges you wish to participate in. Challenge Winners will be announced later that week!

Hi Anja, I am NOT a messy scrappy, in fact it scares me... but all these Fab classes that the DT have done really is inspiring me to try new things..... so those stencils I have sit there and dont really get used and after Denise's class this morning - its time to get messy!!

I love the idea of this. I am drawn to messy art. I love splatters and handwritten journaling and distressed. I'm have a hard time being messy sometimes, because the perfectionist in me comes out, but I always like those pages better when I do let myself make a mess.

Yay! I hope you guys have fun!
If getting messy on your layouts is outside your comfort zone, remember, it just has to be messier than usual for you. Just try a little bit of a mess!

Anja, Jody and Emily your LO:s are awesome!
Here is my take, I have used mist, acrylicpaint more than usual and also stickles which I never use but now I think of use them more:)
More action, less talk, here is my take:

Messy, messy, messy! I feel like I truly made a mess on my layout.
I wrote about my girls helping me paint some thrift store furniture...it was a messy job.

Anja.... I really had to stretch here... and thanks for getting me too :)

used paint all over the background, then made journalling lines with paint, and used an eyedropper with glimmermist for my "dye" runs on the page!
