Last Creative Jumpstart 14 Project... The Cover Page for My 2014 Project Life Album

 
 
I've got to the end of creating within the realms of Creative Jumpstart 2014 and completed each one of the challenges/ideas/giveaways, although what I've been challenged to do, will stay with me  for sure....
 
 
 
This started out as a dumping page for the excess ink I had left in my colander from my last project.

 
Did spray the inside of the colander with water to make it a bit more 'drippy'
 
Still didn't know what I'd do with this yet


Had some extra paper with some more dumped excess paint from various things.. so punched out some shapes which became interesting!




 
Aaaah the use of a household product...
Nathalie Kalbach (who runs Creative Jumpstart) gave the idea of different patterns with wrapping rubber bands around cardboard and using them like a stamp - cool idea!
This is just one rubber band...

 
 
loaded with paint...



gives a large zigzag effect - kinda representative of sewing!



 
The circles became 'round-about' like.. and I knew then it would be the cover page for my Project Life Journal!
 
 
 
 
As there are a heap of  wonderful sponsors, we can enter under any of them if we are inspired by a tutorial using a household good/s of one of the fabulous tutors.  Many thanks to Nathalie's idea
 
I'm going to pop this under
CDlogo250
 
 It worked well and while I haven't had a kit from the fabulous Cocoa Daisy.. the Project Life products in the kit sure does resonate with my cover page!


all a part of

I love this one. The movement is great, but doesn't get carried away; very well balanced in all aspects.
I also love the "Beijing" one; the composition just nails it and there's something so asian about the feel of it. I voted for you on that one!

I love this page you have created using the plastic colander! Thanks for dropping by my blog and for the lovely comment! I had such a great time doing CJS, oh, and if you happen to find somewhere here selling those Stencil Girl stencils, I would love to know too :)
