My Kind of Bug

This weeks challenge on UKS is set by my lovely scrappy friend Ali and I produced a sample layout for her to use. The criteria for the challenge is to use scraps, to use a colour scheme we normally wouldn't use & to be artistic (interpreted however we like). When I saw the list of criteria I thought I would struggle with the artistic element but after looking through my photos and searching the web I soon came up with an idea...ZENTANGLE! With this in mind I came up with this layout
These photos we taken at a local car show over the summer. I love VW Beetles and this one was lush with its stars on the dash and around the lights, if it was pink I would have had to have it! I decided to replicate the stars from the car and diecut some using my Sizzix primative star die, keeping with the scraps element I used the reverse of a scrap of paper I could never see myself using! I then sat down and doodled away lol! I struggled to think of a colour combo I dont normally use but then I realised that I love colour on my layouts so decided to opt for a monochrome/grey combo but me being me I had to have a little bit of colour as it didnt feel right so I added a touch of red. All the papers are from my scraps, the heart badge is from Buttons & Badges & the letters are Echo Park ( they reminded me of tyre tread lol!)


  1. Love the color combination and the contrast of the white space/background with the zentangle stars. It's so striking!

  2. love those stars, what a great idea!
