My DT Entries

As you read last time I posted I'm having a shot at a DT position over at Mystical Scrapbooks and have now completed the first 4 weeks of challenges ... here are my creations for your viewing pleasure ...
Challenge 1 Part A - this LO is from a sketch we were given.
Challenge 1 Part B - to create your own sketch then do your own LO from it ...
Challenge 2 Part A - we had to show/teach a technique in the forum (I did back to basics - distressing - tearing, sanding, inking, edging, crumpling, using paint) then do our own LO showcasing the technique - I managed to incorporate all 6 techniques I demonstrated in my forum post on my LO.
Challenge 3 Part A - 12x12 LO, include technique/s from previous week (not own technique), journalling based and 2 photos of different sizes.
I did tea-bagging (flowers) and a textured frame (great for a canvas background too - dampen surface, crumple up tissue then soak them on with a 50/50 mix of water and PVA, then paint and decorate as desired), plus there's a wee bit of simple doodling and water colour there too.
Challenge 3 Part B - 8.5"x11" monochromatic LO with a handmade embellishment and using no more than 3 different product brands. I used bazzill bling on this one and my handmade embellishments are the stitched flourish (if that counts LOL) and the cut out flowers complete with kindy glitz and a pearl centre.
Challenge 4 Part A - double LO (I did a 12x24) using multiple photos and resuming your usual style PLUS include name, age, scrapping history, scrapping achievements and personal info that can be shared online. I did some hidden journalling wiht details about my scrapping history, achievements and why I'm taking this journey for a chance at a DT spot with Mystical). I'll post it seperately because I'll be putting a link to it over at the Mystical Forum.
Challenge 4 Part B - create a signature LO, one that is typically your style ...
I'm actually not entirely happy with this LO for this challenge - I thought alot about my "typical" style - colour, layers/overlapping, variety of embellies and textures and usually more than 1 photo - what do you think???
So that's my 4 weeks of challenges done and dusted. We'll find out this Sunday who made it to the top 10 ... wish me luck!!!
