During July I have found a few more to tick of Rinda's
2014 Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt list...
Here we have ...
4. A group of tourists - tourist queuing to catch their train home following a visit to Liverpool to see the Giants
9. A bakery and 16. A sign in a language other than English
11. A horn - During a recent comedy night at a local theatre, the woman in the final act produced a horn which she played between her legs!
and one of the Black Rhinos at Chester Zoo
14. A parade - two pics here - first is the little girl giant in Liverpool and the second of the WW1 commemorative parade in town
and who could resist another 17. A lamp post
18. A water fall watched by some monkeys at the zoo
21. A photograph of you with something representing the season (recognizing that the season will be Winter for our friends in the southern hemisphere). Note: you may not use a substitute for this item. Me and my fabulous little family spending quality TIME together with LOTS of maize until we all went our separate ways and got lost in the maze! Linking up here with Our Beautiful World where the prompt this week is TIME and is chose by Robyn
My whole collection so far can be found HERE and my Mini Four Day Hunt in Barcelona HERE I am loving this year's hunt!
Urban Market by Teresa Collins is such a gorgeous collection but boy am I sparkling!
Did you manage to grab yourself a kit?
I hope so as you really wouldn't want to miss it.
I did add some extras this month
so have managed a few more layouts than I would normally!
Today I am sharing another layout with you and
for this layout I have found a new challenge blog another freaking scrappy challenge which hosts two challenges per month.
The first of the month prompt is "Have you ever been recognized for something? Scholarship? Award? Employee of the quarter? Fifth place winner??? Published? Scrap or art journal about it"
and the mid month challenge is this sketch ...
I decided that I would just use the sketch this time and decided to use the photos of
us at the Kennedy Space Center.
My title (an Elbow song) is created using my Cameo
Don't forget Jen's and Virginia's blogs for more inspiration.
TOP TIP - I strongly suggest that you keep
your eyes peeled for the August kit.
I have already played with mine and you would be daft to miss it!
When I saw this kit I just knew I needed all the added extras and got my order in quick with Jen.
The kit is released today so be quick if you want to get your sticky kits on it.
Just look at what you get for a fiver...
5 sheets of fabulous double sided paper, a doily (yours won't be scrunched like mine!)
glitter card, glitter material, two gorgeous butterflies, a length of ribbon and a bag of sequins.
I also treated myself to the rest of the collection...
For my first layout, I wanted to create lots of circles to depict the tunnels on the International Space Station. Whilst visiting the Kennedy Space Center last year we got to pretend we were astronauts way up there in space. Clambering through the tunnels was pretty difficult but just look at the effect in the photo it created...
I used nestabilities to die cut the glittery circles (I don't do fussy cutting) then used my Cameo to create the linked blue circles. My story is told on the pull out tab behind the photo.
The wordy paper "subway" is great for creating titles.
The second layout tells a sad story of a bunch of 5 cousins.
I love this happy photo taken circa 1971 (I'm second from left)
however 43 years later only 3 of us lead "normal" lives whilst the other two lead somewhat sad
and unhappy ones in a place that the rest of us don't know.
I've never used sequins on a layout before so this was a first for me and those butterflies are just gorgeous. I have obviously used some added extras for my layouts here but what a kit.
A fiver - that's all it is!
And you could always add some extras in from the Urban Market collection.
Virginia will be on her blog tomorrow with some of her creations and I'll be back on Sunday to show
one or two more of mine. Jen has also been creating a glitter trail over on her bedblog.
So with one list printed, phone and camera at the ready and husband in tow, do you want to see how I did?
1. A sign welcoming people to your home town (or a nearby town)
2. A garden gnome
3. Birds on a wire (Ok just the one!)
4. A group of tourists
5. A rack of post cards
6. An urban street scene
7. A rural landscape
8. A tattoo on a person (weirdo alert!!! If you've got a tattoo, expect photo to be taken!)
9. A bakery
10. A photo bomb (someone found lurking in the background of photo; the lurker may have intended to disrupt the picture or may be doing it unintentionally, but the background lurker is a surprise to the photographer)
(just as a took this photo the moped came into my scene)
11. A horn
12. A mascot
13. A sunrise You gotta be kidding me! I wasn't getting up that early on my holiday 14. A parade FAIL 15. A juggler (yep my own personal juggler!)
16. A sign in a language other than English
17. A lamp post
18. A water fall
19. A public garden
20. A bus (not a car, truck, lorry, camper or RV) with a picture painted on its sides.
21. A photograph of you with something representing the season (Yikes!)
If you find something on the list too difficult, you may substitute one of the following items for anything on the list, except for Item #21: Alternative A: A kite, hot air balloon or blimp Alternative B: A bird house I didn't get the alternatives either to make up for my two fails but hey not a bad shot in four days!
I will of course still be completing it the normal way and you can where I'm up to HERE
