Pass The Page Blog Hop

Last year Julie put out a plea for people to join in a pass the page game.  The idea being that Julie would make a lo then send it on to the fisrt person who would make their interpretation.  Then the second person would make a LO based on the first person's and so on.  

Julie designed and made a LO and then passed it on to me as first participant.  This is the page I received:


After I had picked myself up off the floor and realised my comfort zone had just just got up, walked off and ended up in outer space I then went in to panic mode!  No patterned paper, paint, mists, words can't express how not me this is!

Anyway, I finally gave in to the panic and made this page:





I placed the photos and just could not do it with no paper and just paint there.  I just had to add a little paper and some hessian.  I then proceeded to cover the hessian and paper but felt comfortable with that.  Strange I know but knowing there was paper there made things so much better!

Although it really is not me I have enjoyed pushing myself to try something new and have gained a little bit of courage to step outside of my comfort zone.  

Thank you for arranging this Julie and I hope the other ladies enjoyed taking part as much as I have and I can't wait to see all the finished LO's.

If you would like to see the finished LO's too, pop on over to Lea or if you have come straight here the first stop is Julie.


Don't forget to have a look at Deb's blog where there are details of a giveaway.

Great page! It's good for us to be put on the spot and taken outside our normal comfy cosy crafting selves! I wouldn't have guessed that you didn't feel entirely sure of this page, as it looks great.

Like you, I enjoy my bits of paper and trimmings. Mind you, Julie does too - sometimes!

Great page - I'm a bit jealous that you went to Krakov! Love the photos too. Well done for making a lovely page and rising to the challenge.

I agree with Lizzie..it doesn't look as though you were out of your comfort zone! Great take on Julie's inspiration

I think you look perfectly comfortable with this kind of style - you have really made it work for you! Add in those wonderful photos and that's a winner!

Lisa-Jane said...

I think you've taken this idea and really run with it - it has turned out so well! Great interpretation.

Lea said...

Love what you did! The paint splattering looks great and I LOVE how you used the flags! Doesn't appear you are out of your comfort zone at all!

Margie said...

Great photos-love the paint and flags!

Kirsty.a said...

Great job, especially as it's not your usual style

Twinkle Star said...

I love both the layouts! You did so well considering you were out of your comfort zone! Can't wait to see how the page progresses! x

K said...

Fab page, love those little flags!

alexa said...

You've done a great job of reinterpreting this! The journalling spots remind me of the arrows, and there's lots of glowing colour. Love your sentence about your comfort zone!

Jessie said...

Awesome photos and LO! Love how you used the paint.

Nathalie said...

Wow! As a more linear scrapbooker I totally understand your initial reaction but I love the way you challenged yourself! The resulting page is very well done!

Helen said...

I think you did a great job trying something different and your paint works really well - had to laugh at the comfort of hidden paper as I know what you mean :)

Jimjams said...

I rather like your paint splatter on this page (and those that know me well will realise what a HUGE compliment that is) - it's a lovely interestingly layered page with some great photos - a beautiful scraplift!

Mary B said...

You have done a brilliant job of scraplifting the original. I love the use of Hessian too.

Amy said...

You did a great job! Being taken out of your comfort zone is very hard!

DebiJ said...

What a fabulous page Candance & you really turned it one, for a gal that was a little challenged...I think this is marvellous - you need not have been in a panic! What great photos & embellies...sets the scene for me!
Lovely hopping with you, xx

Ginger said...

You did a fantastic job Candace! I love how you interpreted the layout, this has been absolute fun seeing what others made:)

Lisa said...

he he in the paper that's there but covered up - I do that all the time! Funny! This page is great and I think you look very comfortable with this. The cluster of photos are great and the paint is really perfect. Well done and what fun this appears to be :-)

Angelfish said...

It's looks like you did just fine outside of your comfort zone. Great page with lots of interesting things to look at. I'll be back to check out your lovely crochet projects, as that is something I really want to learn this year.

Thanks for joining in and I think you really rose to the challenge. I love your interpretation of the page and I'm glad you managed to adapt it to make you happy.

It is so hard to leave your comfort zone so well done on creating this stunning page, the paper and hessian looks great! I will be back to look at more of your scrapping xxx

Clair said...

I like your layout - and I'm starting to see how it morphed into the one I received already. Glad you managed to get out of your comfort zone!
