Basic Grey Challenge #21

Its “Lets mix it up challenge at Basic Grey challenge blog this week. I always mix lines whatever the brand is. I actually get the feeling my layout resembles everyother layout if I use papers and embellishments from a single line. So I was thrilled but work and other commitments kept me busy until last night.
Here is my take on the challenge. I have used Basic Grey Granola, Recess and Stella Ruby papers in this card. Alphas from Pink Paislee.
Thanks for stopping by

Here it is …….

As promised in the past post, here is the layout I made for the Master Blaster challenge at Debscreations. It is s poppet challenge.Here are the details

To create a Layout using 1 or more Poppets to tell a story!!!

You must have Journaling on the Layout through the use of a Journaling Tag- giving a few details of your story- this could be a trip to the zoo, a wedding, a special gift etc!

You can use any Cardstock & or Patterned Papers you wish but your LO must contain some form of bright colours!.

At least 20% of the Layout must have 3D elements on it!

You can use any Embellies you wish, but you must include a pin & 1 paper clip! :lol:

At Least 1 of the Poppets Faces must be yours- no exceptions!

I was intrigued in the beginning. Sort of postponed it for a week pondering what to do.
But yesterday I had a whole day to me and I came up with this idea of doing what goes on in my mind everyday when I go to work!! Lol!!
Initially I wanted to do just the house but I got so engrossed in making the house then the trees, then the sun and suddenly I thought let me use my brayer to make the sky.
When I finished that, I wanted something different for the grass, so I came up with heat embossing for the grass to add a texture as the grass would have.
Then I raided my daughter’s toys and found this dress of her polly pocket and nicked it.
Shhh!!!! don’t tell her….
I use the top only and hand drew the hands and used the legs only of the Magnolia Tilda stamp and …. I just was into it the whole day that I did not realise that I missed lunch.
OH!! it was so much fun making it. Never forget it.
Felt like my inner child just came through cutting, inking, gluing…lol!!!
This layout will be my favorite. Love the outcome.

I just received more stamps I purchased. Can’t wait to use it.
Will show you tomorrow a card I am going to make with it for Basic Grey challenge.

Have a great day
