Wow challenge #4 already!!!! This fortnight our challenge is to use things found in your garage or raided from your hubby (don't flame us for making assumptions but we figure most of you will have at least one or the other, or both! lol). It can be anything at all that you've found, recycled, picked up, pocketed, borrowed or pilfered!!! And for those who aren't regular players, you don't need to have a whole layout of garbage, even one or two items is fine with us. It's the fact that you've taken time to incorporate something you normally wouldn't on a project and you've broadened your scrapping horizons even that little bit.
So to kick us off for this week here's our Garage/Hubby stuff:
Alana has used a galvenised tin planter box, spray paint and house paint.
Lusi has used sandpaper, a videograph sticker from old VCR packaging, bubble wrap and pull-rings from empty cans.
(apologies for the not-so-good pic - Cass's layout and Lu's layouts are both quite heavy and textured and thus wouldn't scan and didn't want to photograph well either!!!)
Lu has used coloured wire sheathing, old computer RAM sticks, an old CD, plastic cable ties, a triangular piece of metal of some computer-type thing, sheet of labels for computer parts storage. (can you tell I don't have a garage but I do have a super-geek soon-to-be hubby?!?!?)
This was certainly a fun challenge for us, lots of inspiration and interesting bits and pieces to be found and I think some of our menfolk have taken to hiding their work/hobby materials from us since we began this challenge for fear that anything not nailed down (and some things that were!!!) will be made off with for the benefit of our scrapping!!! lol
We hope that you've found some inspiration in what we've come up with and I know that for some of you the mojo is gearing up already, just imagining what you can find, forage or pilfer!!! We can't wait to see what everyone does for this challenge and it's sure to be a fun one.
You can either email us your challenge or post a link to your blog/gallery in the comments section and we'll add them to our slide show. There will be a RAK for our fave take and entries need to be up by midnight AEDST on Sunday 11th November 2007 (far out where is the year going?!?!?). The winner of Challenge #3 is Julie with her fantastic "Not That Simple" layout. We loved this one for Julie's great collage effect use of the contents of her handbag and what it told us about her and her life right now. Congrats Julie - don't forget to email us your addy so we can send you your RAK.
Jilly will be sitting this one out but hopefully she'll be back for our next challenge. We'll also be introducing an exciting new guest Garbage Girl to share her fab work with everyone.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look and thank you to everyone who has supported the EDG blog since we began. We hope you're having fun exploring your garbage and can't thank you all enough for sharing your fabulous work with us!
