Good morning crafters!!
What a weekend its been here at MTS headquarters!
Yesterday brought the reveal of the Chinese whispers challenge that some of our regulars have been working on for the past 4 weeks... We each took a sketch of our choice and made our own version of it. Then we passed it ont the next person in our group, who did their version of it and so on and so forth until it came full circle back to us, which prompted the reveal!
This went incredibly well, there were no major hiccups, everyone felt inspired and completed their challenges and the layouts that were made from it are just amazing.
Today im going to share one groups pages with you as they are the ones that leapt out to me as being the ones who stuck so close to the original from start to finish.
So this was the layout that Melinda Gree chose to lift:
Gorgeous isnt it!! I love all of the mixed media layers and the textures are just perfect...
Then we move onto the AS STUNNING layout by Melinda Greer:
I Love how Melinda has added an extra photo and changed the layers up slightly but you can still see that its based very heavily on the original.
Now onto Lil Bowers:
Lil brings another colour change, which amuses me as its almost back to original colours! She added in slightly bigger embellishments and focal points and went back to one photo, without knowing it!!!
Last but not least we have the layout by Claire Thomas:
I love how Claire has ramped everything up in this version... the Stamp layers are more grungy, the stamping is bigger and more frequent, the circle is bigger.... knowing Ruth, the girl in the photo.. this BIG approch definitely responds to her BIG personality and not only that, but it reflects the theme of the page. Hearing music through your teeth is amazing, when you think of music you think loud, sometimes crazy and the fact that the title is Rock On you get that rock music feel from the grunge.
I think these ladies did an amazing job with this particular chinese whispers challenge, if you want to see everyone elses albums... and there are quite a few.... why not join us on our facebook group... We are starting a new chinese whispers challenge in the next week so sign ups will start from today. Feel free to jump in and join us, you wont be short on inspiration!!!
