I have lots of wonderful info to share with you about two new challenges that will be featured every month---starting today--- at Bella Creations, a ning site hosting amazing, talented scrappers, paper crafters and artists. (Enter the site through my blinking badge on my sidebar.)
For my album page, I glued core'dination paper on top of grungeboard. Bella Creations' colors are black and pink with a touch of turquoise. So I chose the black paper with the pink core. Prior to gluing, I used the Tim Holtz brick texture fade on the corners. Then I sanded the bricks and all the way around the edge of the page to expose the pink. Bricks symbolize building the foundation of Bella Creations. You see some Tim Holtz tissue tape on the top right which I ribbon folded. My friend Sandi sent me the pink punchinella (sequin waste) that you see in the bottom left corner. Here are a couple close-ups:
TWO: For the Bella Muse Challenge, you can create anything with a specific image. The image of this little girl inspired me to create something special in memory of baby Clara who became an angel of God a year ago.
The Muse challenge is sponsored by Scraps of Darkness (link on my right sidebar). February's winner, by random draw announced on March 1, will get this prize which is the January Scraps of Darkness kit:
If this isn't enough to get you over to Bella Creations, the other Design Team Bellas have their own groups and sponsor their own challenges. There's something for everybody! I'll be sharing my group's challenge and prize in Thursday's post.
We honor members in other ways besides prizes. Tobi. is La Creme du Bella Creations this week for her beautiful collage/layout. Lynne is the Bella du Jour and Terry is our first Bella du Mois. If you'd like to learn more about these honors, please join us at Bella Creations! We'd love to see you there!
