Urban Prairie

Love a challenge – they are great for getting the old Mojo up and running.

The criteria for this one included: sanding, a frame, at least one stamp, chippy and the colour blue.
Plus there was the added incentive that it had to be done in 24 hrs – and a speed scrapper I am not!!

So I pulled out some Urban Prairie – which has languished sadly in my stash – and an old photo of Madame playing at the beach and got scrapping.

Whoo hoo – mojo was on a roll. Some inspiration from Irene Tan (how long has your magic mesh been sitting in your stash for?), the criteria and the gorgeous stuff from the Urban Prairie range and I was off and scrapping. Just love the finished product.

The Fiskars punch is the “Icing on the Cake” one and I used the little left-over bits to decorate the Green Tara flower and the small random pink flowers.

The frame is a combination of using a LYB die-cut photo frame as a template for an Urban Prairie paper and an old Prima stamp on a transparency sheet. The journalling card is from Buzz and Bloom (Writer’s Block: The George) and the pink flowers are some I got from Photo Continental.

I am so looking forward to the next challenge. The time component will kill me – but it will be fun along the way.

Ignore the odd look to the photo – I’ve used a new transparency sheet (a special one that can go through a laser and an inkjet printer) and it seems to alter the way the camera takes a picture of anything underneath it. The photo looks fine in real life.
