Oops--Lawnscaping Challenge #16 & Less is More Wk 28



Tonight I combined Lawnscaping  and Less is More Challenges.  Both required only one layer--yep, only one layer of paper.  Mandi from Less is More inspired me to pull out some LuminArt Primary Elements and try something new.  Seriously when I purchased the LuminArt materials, I had absolutely no idea how to use them, but they were 75% off, so I had to buy them.  Tonight I combined them with some water and painted inside my science bottles (Love Potion #9 --Itty Bitty by Unity).  My thought process was for the card to look like there was an explosion.  Using the OOPS sentiment, I could use this card for a forgotten birthday or an I'm sorry card when I do something wrong.  I tried to balance the card with the ribbon and a jeweled brad.  I'm still not sure about this card, but I did move outside my comfort zone and enjoyed myself!

P.S.  I think I put too much "explosion."  Might need to retry leaving more white space.  Hmm?

  4. I think that if your 'explosion' was confined to an area closer to the bottles, the splodges of colour may have had more of an impact!
    It's a great idea... I'm glad you had fun!
    Thanks so much
