Cybercrop Saturday update

The Cybercrop continued yesterday with an 8am Challenge: 'Scarecrow'. This one had the brief 'Poor scarecrow is going to lose his stuffing! Help him out by sewing on a layout depicting something you’re proud to have achieved'. I cheated a little with this one and used a photo that I'm proud of. I took it when we were playing with our cameras in Scotland and I was really pleased with the composition and the fact that the cow was looking at the camera since we were there for about half an hour trying to get them to do that. I had planned to rub some images on, but when I peeled them off their backing half the image was left on the paper. So instead I printed the image on to the safmat (available from Indigo Mill) and stuck it directly on to the page. Then I stuck the beads on with glossy accents and hand sewed the buds on. Supplies:
My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow 'Checking out'
Basic Grey Ambrosia paper
American Crafts Thickers 'Glass Slippers'
October Afternoon 'Weathervane' stickers
Prima alphabet
Doodlebug rub on mini alpha
Hobbycraft lace
Embroidery thread
Adorn it Carolee's Creations Tiny etched

There was another 8am photo challenge but I'm not going to share that, because I really do look like a scarecrow in it ;)

The next class/challenge I wanted to try my hand at was the 11am Challenge: Lion a layout challenge. This one said 'use felt or fabric on a layout about an event/person that took/has courage'. So I used a photo I took last week of Connor at his first appointment with the dentist, being such a brave boy and used Sassafras lass felties 'Silly Monsters' from Indigo Mill.

The 1pm class was one that I awaited in anticipation. I love Shimelle's work and I enjoyed 'Take No Notice of the Man behind the Curtain' by Shimelle. This one had loads of layered paper and hidden places. There's an envelope behind the photo and the photo is stuck on a piece of folded cardstock that opens to reveal more photos and journalling.
