I just want to share my Scrappin Mom Idol 3 Round 4 Challenge entry. The challenge was
#1 Use the word, "PLAY" to inspire you on your layouts.
It does not have to be your title or even part of your journaling.
Use the word to inspire you on your theme.
#2 “PLAY” with your patterned papers and embellishments!
- Alter AT LEAST one of the patterned papers you are going to use on your layout.
This is a good way to give your "old", long forgotten papers a makeover. Or maybe you just feel that the patterned paper can still be improved from its original state.
- Alter AT LEAST one kind of embellishment you are going to use on your layout.
#3 We want to see photos AT PLAY, not necessarily kids playing. You can scrap about you and your hubby at play! Be imaginative when you PLAY.
#4 Use any (or all if you wish) of these colors:
You may mix the color/s you chose with other colors not specified in this challenge. Your chosen color/s should comprise at least 50% of your layout.
Here is my layout:
For this challenge, I've used a photo of me and my sisters playing around trying to imitate the "Three Monkeys." The three wise monkeys (Japanese: 三猿, san'en or sanzaru, or 三匹の猿, sanbiki no saru, literally "three monkeys") are a pictorial maxim. Together they embody the proverbial principle to "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". The three monkeys are Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil; Kikazaru, covering his ears, who hears no evil; and Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil.
Colours Used: Teal, Yellow and Orange
Alterations: I have altered the Teal patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket, Get Happy: Crush pp, by drawing some zigzag doodling on it and distressing my pps. For my embellishment, I have altered the Prima teal flowers by stamping a zigzag image directly on it and adding some metal lollipop charms as finishing.
Journaling: See No Evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil
