No, you haven't read that dates wrong above. The week-end is officially over, but the lovely, darling Shimelle has continued the fun into this week. Not only that, but she's put together a video to show us how she put together a LO. After watching her video, our challenge was to use as many or few of her ideas on a LO of our own.
My LO used most of her ideas and positionings as I loved her LO loads. What I didn't bank on with doing mine digitally, was that it would take me all night to do it. I'll explain what I did in a bit, but this is another
LO as it's going in Mum's holiday album. Have a look at the LO, then I'll give you a run down of what I did.
Ok, so what did you see? Freehand cutting? My own made bingo cards (and yep, I made 2!)? Re-colouring? Erasing parts of the some of the butterflies? Changing the background butterflies into sand drawings to give them an embossed look? Painting a frame under the bingo card? Using a brush to add the edging to the large butterfly and also each individual spot on it? Anything else you can see I did? Framing? Using another frame as a stamp? Changing colour photos to B&W? Cropping Shading? Adding depth? Making my own flag (sort of thing)?
What you can't see is the amount of times I tried something and it wouldn't work (CTRL+Z is definitely my friend). The times my programme almost froze on me as I tried to save my ongoing work. The pain I'm still in from having bad cramp in both legs and the top of a foot just before I started working on my LO. Above all, what you probably can't see is the dedication of knowing that I was making another LO to go in Mum's album above all else.
Love, Sarah xoxo
