Yesterday I shared some art I made on the airplane and in my hotel room. Today I'm sharing several projects that I made in the midst of filming Scrapbook Soup in order to fill two holes. It's always interesting to make projects during filming -- high tension. The projects have to look good and they usual require using very specific supplies and techniques, which can be limiting. I prefer to think of them as a fascinating puzzle that has to get done as quickly and efficiently as possible. An art game of sorts!
First up, I needed a project that was:
This is what I came up with:
You can see the dot Roller Stamp in the background. I used vellum to help the title pop off the busy background.
I used the heart Decoration Tape to create the wonky photo mat and the heart embellishment -- which takes advantage of the transparency of the tape (you can see that over the watercolor).
My next assignment was to create a collection of projects from project leftovers. Each project had to have a technique that could be demonstrated in less than 2 minutes. Here's what I came up with:
This card is a smash together of two projects from the show -- I shared how you could take the design of a Christmas card and completely change the tone by changing the color scheme.
This is a simple version of my Junque Journal concept. I took the leftover bits from lots of projects, punched a hole in each of them and used a key ring to bind them into a mini album!
This card is a mashup of several projects -- The background is a discarded leftover, the flower is one too, and the heart was poached from a scrapbook page. In the segment I share how to create the sentiment tag.
The flock of butterflies and the title on this page were created using a leftover scrap of painted paper!
So, there you have it, a few colorful projects made on location. I always learn so much about myself when I create under pressure. It's a great way to figure out what you *must* have to create and to force yourself to stop diddling around with decisions. Time pressure always forces a commitment!
Thanks for stopping by!
