15 items challenge - Joan Gevaert

Long time since I joined in with some blog challenges , somehow life gets in
the way, even now 3 lambs are hanging patiently in the polytunnel ; waiting
to be chopped up to go in the freezer.
The holiday season is nearly over which will give me a bit more play time.

On Joan Gevaerts forum we are challenged to make a layout with at least 15 items ( the background paper does not count) .
I have made an arch and used a photo of my daddy when he was little .
I'm counting 17 items so should be o.k. with the challenge.

oops I now know it had to be exactly 15 items so I have removed 2 of the little metal flowers ( hurray for digital)

Kits used- Antique Charms- Laura Boetto
Mallard- a grungy overlay - Laura Boetto
Time passage cluster- Lisa Bowman

Both designers are from the DigitalCraftCottage go and check it out you get loads of Photoshop help there and loads of freebies and you learn how to design things yourself.
The challenge on GothicArches is little boys this week so this will
do for that one and may be gets me back into the swing of things in blogland.


Het is alweer tijden geleden dat ik me gedaan heb aan challenges in gets in the way.
terwijl ik schrijf hangen er 3 lammetjes te wachten om in stukjes gesneden te worden zodat ze de vriezer in kunnen.
Het vakantie seizoen is bijna over dus dat geeft straks ook weer wat meer vrije tijd.
Op het forum van Joan Gevaerts is de nieuwe challenge om een layout te maken met minstens 15 items.. het achtergondpapier telt niet mee. Ik heb een arch gemaakt en een foto van mijn vader gebruikt.
De kits zijn van Laura Boetto en van Lisa Bowman beide van Digitalcraftcottage waar je een hoop kunt leren over Photoshop en zelfs leert om je eigen digitale elementen en papier te ontwerpen . Het thema bij GothicArches is deze week kleine jongens dus daar is deze ook goed voor.

What an amazing arch, Ellen! I love the picture of your dad as a wee one. Your arch has many areas of interest. I'm not sure I could be so coordinated with 15 items!
