i'm so glad you like it. i had fun and went with a 50's advertising theme so it's not so obviously divergent.....did you know that they amity put peace serum in their bread when the dauntless come to dinner?

i used decoart ink effects fabric transfer paint. i bought it on clearance at joann fabrics, but you can still buy it on the website. i've only used it a couple times but i love it.
i created the image on my computer, and reverse  printed it out in black and white on regular paper. then i painted it with the ink. it looks much darker on the paper. after it dries, you place it on your fabric and iron it. it works best on light colors, and will be darker on synthetic fabrics like the felt. this is the same technique on another project. i don't have an in process for the divergent bag. the cotton tote bag on the right is kind of light. painted image on the left.

you can also iron it 3 or 4 times with good results. it didn't work well for fine lines like the fear text, but for the basic images i was really happy with it. then i stitched the details with floss. i used the same stencil several times on a pillow case for my daughter it's half cotton half polyester. the image isn't still like fabric paints usually are. i haven't washed it so i don't know how durable it is. but she like it.

project- hot and cold atc

Gemino curse creates duplicates, and these 2 are twins, even though they are fraternal not identical. one represents warm summer breezes, the other represents cold winter winds. I drew them in they are a combination of ink, watercolor pencil, and regular colored pencils.

tiamafire-love the t reconstruction, resetting the sleeve makes a big diffrence



spew: for livelikeandi charity walk

project: strong and courageous hero poster

this summer we went to michigan to attend a 1 mile/5k/10k walk/run to raise money for adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). It's a rare type of cancer so there isn't a lot of research being for it, and not a lot of treatment options. i was diagnosed with it 9 years ago, then it reacurred this spring. We heard about live like andi through an ACC facebook group. a family in michigan sponsors it each year in memory of their mom. along with the race, they have a hero wall, where people are invited to create posters to honor someone, and to help people understand the effect of this disease. it's also a good way for people who have been diagnosed with this to get to know each other. until this event, i hadn't met someone with this type of cancer face to face.

i printed a bunch of my favorite pictures, and arranged them chronologically
from upper left to upper right. the writing underneath the pictures is probably to small to read. the scripture in the center matches our team t-shirts. i'm feeling good.

just sent off my geek swap, so now i'm up for this! our library had a contest this summer to design a bookmark, and I won for the adult age group. this was  hand drawn,and then reprinted and distributed.

I hadn't thought about all the other types of bookmarks you could make. somehow I always just grab what ever junk mail is handy.

class- apparition
project name-blue girls

since this assignment was to be based on the human body, i started doing a sketch of my daughter. something went wonky with the eyes, so instead of giving up, i decided to just play with it and add sunglasses. some days she seems to be a Metamorphmagus but maybe that's just hormones...

project-turtle atc

in the july atc swap, someone was looking for a drawing of their pet turtle, based on it's photograph. while it may not be of great value, a pet is highly prized by it's owner.

i made a mistake while i was working on it, so i cut the head and arms out, redrew the shell, then layered them onto the backgroud so he pops out a little bit. i think he's pretty cute.

i meantioned at the end of the spring semester, that i was going to be doing treatment for cancer. i had been in remission for 9 years, when a small spot showed up this spring. it was treated with cyberknife over the summer. it's a type of radiation so you don't know right away if it worked. i have a scan scheduled next month to see how it looks. i'm hopeful, feeling better, and back to work. 

i did some crafting during my down time, but didn't realize that none of it had gotten posted, so time to catch up!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: charms
House: gryffendor
Project Name: thankyou note

for my grandmother's birthday, i made a special card for her, with a note inside thanking her for all she does for our family. i stamped a variety of embellishments onto watercolor paper with stazon waterproof ink, then added color with paints. after they had dried, i cut them out and created the collage.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: flying
House: gryffendor
Project Name:hummingbird tote

for her gift, i decorated a tote bag for her with a hummingbird hovering over a flower. i tried a new technique. i had bought 'ink effects' image transfer ink.you paint it onto paper, then iron it onto the final project.


it turned out really cute, and you can use the transfer more than once. i'll write up a tutorial soon.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: alchemy
House: gryffendor
Project Name: waterplant atc

for the july atc swap, i did a water themed card. i drew the plant stems with white crayon, painted over with watercolors, then sprinkled it with salt. i love the resulting effect.

house: gryffendor
project: julia child atc

also for the july atc, i did a card for a 'women in history theme'. i wanted to do a julia child card. she inspired a lot of home cooks with her humor. i also got "the art of french cooking" for christmas last year,  i love the detailed way she breaks things down.

i started looking up photos of her to do a drawing, then i found some great quotes

so i decided to make the card into a fold out

OWL Subject & Option (if available):charms
Project Name:matroshka journal

i finished my owl a few weeks ago, but i had to wait for it to be recieved before i could post it. last fall, we did a little visitor swap with some school students in russia. we sent a small stuffed dog, and they sent us a matryoshka doll. we took her around our town and took pictures, then this spring it was time to assemble the journal. i took some charms inspiration,and tried some concealed journaling and other new techniques.

 i found a map online and used it as the basis for a decopaged cover

i used a folded paper doll for jounaling blocks

i had tons of pictures from the park, so i created a collage, with a flap for hidden journaling

i also layered photos and journaling cards

more pages

the my kids also created that i didn't include here. this was a lot of fun, and now have new ideas to use in my family scrapbooks!

10  travel buddy -matroshka scrapbook in CHALLENGE 101 ENTRIES by jenleahlynn on: August 04, 2014 03:32:14 PM
last fall, we sent a stuffed animal to our penpals in russia, and they sent us a matryoshka doll to visit for the year. we showed her around town taking lots of pictures, and this summer it was time to make her travel journal to send back to share her adventures.

Instead of going to the store for the perfect stickers and embellishments, i dug into my scrapbooking stash, tried some new techniques, and created my own embellishments. It was really fun trying things in a new way.

for the cover, i started with a 3 ring binder with a cool print. I found a us map online and printed it onto cardstock. the doll, flowers, and compass were drawn on white paper, cut out and decopauged onto the binder.

this page is a state map i found online.http://makezine.com/craft/how-to_matryoshka_doll_fold_ou/ the doll was from a folding card pattern that i cut out watercolored, and used for journaling.

For the next page, i drew a background and a school bus, and layered pictures and journaling about parts of our town.

I had lots of pictures at the lake, one of our favorite spots, so i created a collage with a flap to show more pictures, and hidden journaling

For the spring page, i had some fun with photography, and croping the pictures,then drew a large flower with colored pencil

my kids also created pages to include. we're still waiting for them to recieve it as overseas shipping takes awhile. now i have some new ideas to us in our family scrapbooks.
