SJ Crafts March Challenge – Photo Inspiration
Hello hello. How is everyone?
Today I’m sharing the March Inspiration Challenge at SJ Crafts which has just gone live!
This month you can use this photo collage for inspiration in any way you choose:
Here’s the layout I made as a sample…
@ The Cold Shore:
I was inspired to seek out a photo from a cold day at the beach, and this was the coldest I have ever been at the shore!
My journaling is actually written on a bit of packaging, which is partly hidden – here’s the whole thing:
If you can’t make it out, the journaling says:
‘You asked to go to the beach one day, but instead we promised to go on another. Even though it turned out to be cold we went then. We didn’t want to break our promise. And it didn’t look too bad when we left Wareham. However when we got to Studland beach the dark grey clouds were rolling in and the wind was blowing hard – whipping the beach flags. It was absolutely freezing! We played there for about half an hour, while our noses started running and a certain Mr got wet and had to be wrapped in a towel on the way home. I think we must have been mad, but at least we didn’t break our promise!’
I was also inspired to use muted colours – with darker colours at the bottom of the page going to lighter ‘sky’ at the top. The ‘b’ side of this piece of paper from Crate Paper’s The Pier collection was perfect for the subdued but atmospheric feel of the photo:
A few of my other supplies were some The Pier stickers, some Prima canvas alphas, Jenni Bowlin’s Tiny Trims rub-ons, and some Simple Stories Daily Grind chipboard stickers, like the ‘Hello Weekend’ sticker below:
All finished off with a good scattering of gems of course!
Will you join in the challenge this month? There will be a prize for one winner (donated by Annie) and a few of the favourite entries will be featured on the SJ Crafts blog soon afterwards.
