Mojo Thursday/Friday???

LOL after telling you Mojo Holder challenges would be on Thursday in future, we had a few hiccups last week and the challenge didn't actually go live until Friday. LOL. Oh well ....... just check the site Thursdays ...... or maybe Fridays ......... the challenges will be there one day or another. LOL

So, challenge #84 (which went live on FRIDAY) was a lift of a LO by Michelle Clements. It was a LO with a clear acetate background and not at all within my comfort zone. I've never created a LO with a clear background and Michelle's LO also included paint!! Shock horror! PAINT!!! Agh. When I'm scrapping I am not at all patient. I hate waiting and anything that doesn't dry instantly really irritates me. I usually end up poking them with my finger to see if they are dry and leaving finger prints because they aren't. So most of my LOs are really very simple. But, I took this weeks challenge by the horns and dug out some black acrylic paint and splodged it round the edges of my acetate, and you know what? I actually quite enjoyed the process! I didn't like waiting for it to dry mind you but I may just be tempted to dabble more with 'wet' stash in future. LOL.

So back to the challenge, Michelle's LO was gorgeous and had real rustic feel to it and I used some Halloween photos of Lara on mine.

This weeks challenge should be live on Thursday so do check it out. There may also be some exciting news announcements.
