The weeks are just flying by and so today is already the 01st March. This means that there is a new sketch challenge starting today and it's a goodie!
You can interpret the sketch, however you wish and we would love to see your interpretations!
You can create a layout, card or altered project!
We have a super, creative and amazing Special Guest Designer for this challenge and she is the lovely Michelle McDonald.
Hi! My name is Michelle, and I’m thrilled to be guest designing for Scrap Africa. I live in a small town in Tennessee with my wonderfully supportive husband John, and our daughter Makara. My family is featured throughout my work, they are my world. My addiction to scrapbooking began about 2 years ago. I began because I think it's a beautiful way to display photos while documenting our everyday moments, and it's the perfect creative outlet for me - there are so many different techniques, styles and yummy supplies to play with! I enjoy creating a variety of projects including layouts, cards, tags, off the page projects, and the occasional mini album. You can find me at http://michellesscrapdesigns.blogspot.com/.
Michelle created this gorgeous and beautiful page for our challenge.
Isn't that photo just sooooo precious?
Here's a closer look at all those beautiful details.
Beautiful, soft and a fabulous design!;-)
We have another super Guest Designer, Elena Ovchinnikova, who was a previous TOP HAT.
My name is Elena and I am addicted to Scrapbooking :)) I was born in Russia but I have been living in Spain for 14 years. I'm married and I have a 4-year-old daughter who is my muse and the main source of my inspiration. When she sees me scrapping, she immediately wants to create her own big projects. It makes me smile, it is so cute, so we often scrap together. When I was a child, I went to the art school in my city but I was too much young to finish it, because I was only thinking about playing and having fun with the friends. After years passed, I grew up, I started to study law in the University (in those times it was fashionable to study it, so...) but luckily my family and me immigrated to Spain so I had to leave my studies... I cannot imagine myself as a lawyer :)) Only here I returned to my passion for art and design, so I finished studies of Interior Designer. Then, one day of 2012, searching in internet, I discovered Scrapbooking, and all my world changed. I was so amazed of so many creations and the talent artists, I could not think about anything else. An interior design projects require much time and dedication. However in the Scrapbooking, the projects are shorter, which means that your head is always keeps the fresh ideas and you can express them immediately . I love to create a lot of beautiful things, especially I find myself in Mixed Media. I love textures, gesso, modelling pastes, paints, sprays... In my projects I like combining fabric with paper, use some small pieces of something what I have saved from waste bin :)))
It's great to be able to do what you really love! I am very happy when I am creating and I feel full of the energy and the creativity.Thanks :) xx
