SCS challenge cards




The mix-ability challenge this week was to take scrunched up paper and dip it into paint and apply to cardstock to add texture. The free 4 all challenge was to take ink directly to the paper. I combined the two challenges on the first card and only the mix challenge on the second card. The first card, I took distress inks in blues and greens and put it directly on a grunge paper. I then did the scrunched up paper with gold and copper. I did direct ink with my ukelele. I did brown distress ink directly to the paper then I did versamark directly to the papaer then added some utee.

I want to tell you a little bit about my projects this month. My daughter just graduated from college and is blessed to have a job teaching and running a high school library. As a way to encourage her students I am making her bookmarks that she can use as "raffle" prizes. So all my projects this month are bookmarks. I also made them all from paint chip samples that had been in my stash of paper for several years. To me art has a personal connection. These bookmarks share a little bit about who I am.


I hope you have enjoyed this Autumn Fun hop as much as I have had making these bookmarks. My last bookmark used MFP set called
AUTUMN SPLENDOR

HARVESTVILLE FARM is near to our home. They have events and sell produce more than just in the fall, but in the fall is when they really come alive. People come from all over to navigate their cornmaze, pick pumpkins, enjoy hayrides, sit by a bonfire and play at their non-traditional playground. It is where my kids and I go to get our pumpkins. I could go elsewhere, but since my family doesn't celebrate Halloween we don't want to carve our pumpkins, we want ours to eat, and Harvestville Farm has the best eating pumpkins.

For my bookmark today I used MFP set called
FALL APPLES
 Unlike the past two days were my bookmarks needed extra explaining, I am sure that we can all relate to picking apples in the fall. APPLEBERRY Orchard is the one that my kids and I love going to. We love the taste of a warm apple doughnut on a cool morning.





Here is an apple my son picked the other day.


Fried apples and waffles... yummy...

For my bookmark today I used MFP set called
DAFFODIL GREETINGS 

AND
ANIMALS BIRTHDAYS

I featured the butterflies from this set. Fall means time to
tag Monarch butterflies through our local conservation group.
We haven't done it the past few years, but when my kids were little we all enjoyed going out, catching the butterflies and tagging them. It was a really fun activity to do in early fall.

Today my bookmark used MPF set called
 HOT & SPICY
Now you might be wondering how chili peppers mean Autumn Fun to me. I was born in New Mexico and grew up in Arizona. There is nothing quite like the taste of a really good green chili. Living here in Iowa, it is hard to get a good green chili, but every fall our grocery store gets Hatch Green Chilies from New Mexico.  





I used Hatch Green Chilies to make turkey enchiladas. YUM!
