Hope everyones having a lovely weekend :) We're predicted dreadful storms here so can't see me going far! That's fine though as I'm still playing along with the Jennifer Grace Creates blog event here.
I'm soooo behind lol. I remember when I used to do blog hops and cyber crops and I would have finished the first challenge and actually had time to spare before the next one started! Not now, I'm still enjoying it though. :) I've decided to take the theme of the event to heart and use it to 'refresh' my bedroom lol. Regular readers will know I don't scrap at a desk or table I get the floor of my bedroom. Doesnt do my back much good but gives me plenty of space to spread out! Unfortunatly I've done that a little too much and theres stuff everywhere! Not good when trying to get Mark about. *Bad wife* Anyway so I've decided that all the challenges and projects I do this weekend will be done only with what I have to hand. If I need to get up to get it then I'm not allowed to use it.
Hopefully this will help clear up some of the little bits I have scattered everywhere and lets face it it indulges my lazy side. :P
Just to show you how bad the mess is this is the tidy area, and Caitlin keeping me company of course :)
So onto the projects! First to catch up on from yesterday were these inspiration prompts

Be Inspired:

Make a waterfall / river / sea with mixed-media layers

Create a monotone project

Stitch some wavy lines

Now I had never, ever done a monotone project as I never usually get black and white photos developed and I don't think they look as good with colour photos.........then the other night I used my one and only black and white photo to do a monotone project showing Caitlins eyes. So you can imagine me kicking myself when I read this challenge! Cue lots of hunting for a photo I thought I could use; and I found this one :)
I love this layout! Some scraps, an old rub on and some random bits and bobs and it was done. So simple and pretty :) I did have to get imaginative with the title though as had very few alphas int he right colour. The word 'Splashes' was actually '8dbd9y38'
I used stickles and mists to try to make wave like effects under the picture. If I'm honest when I finished they looked more like um, sperm than waves lol. So I covered it a little with some twine and a Turkish charm as thats where we are in the photo. Not quite so obvious now lol.
Lots more projects to do and craft stash to use up! Wish me luck!
