Musical Chairs 3

Here’s the last of our musical challenge posts. (Find the others here and here.) We’ve talked about playing scrapbook musical chairs at several retreats now and finally did it.

This was our plan:
1) Choose photos.
2) Set a timer for 20 minutes; start working on your layout. When the timer goes off, leave your layout and move over to the next person’s desk.
3) Restart the timer, work on the other layout. When the timer goes off, switch chairs/layouts again.
4) After each person has worked on each layout for 20 minutes at a time, allow each person 20 minutes to finish their own layouts.

(We did allow for a 10 minute “pause” which was invoked once.)

Crazy fun, huh? We had a few rules; we had to use each others supplies, work with whatever was adhered to the page when we got there and check if there were any “sacred” supplies.

We used this sketch from Colourful Creations.

Shar started her page with some cute photos and a little red and blue. (Plenty of patriotic jokes ensued …)

Three scrappers, three layouts! Would you trust another person with your photos?

 

Musical Chairs Challenge 2

Our DT tackled an interesting challenge this weekend. We’ve always talked about playing scrapbook musical chairs. It may have been a little stressful but we had a great time.

This was our plan:
1) Choose photos.
2) Set a timer for 20 minutes; start working on your layout. When the timer goes off, leave your layout and move over to the next person’s desk.
3) Restart the timer, work on the other layout. When the timer goes off, switch chairs/layouts again.
4) After each person has worked on each layout for 20 minutes at a time, allow each person 20 minutes to finish their own layouts.

(We did allow for a 10 minute “pause” which was invoked only once.)

Crazy fun, huh? We had a few rules; we had to use each others supplies, work with whatever was adhered to the page when we got there and check if there were any “sacred” supplies.

We started with this sketch from Colourful Creations, designed by Brenshevia.

Here is where Cheryl’s layout was after the first 20 minute stretch:

The photos hadn’t even been adhered to the page! But Brande was up to the challenge. Here’s what she did in her 20 minutes:

Next up was Shar. She invoked a timeout here so she could have a little more time. (She spent a lot of time sewing. ;) ) The extra time worked out for all of us.

After we all returned to our own pages, this is how Cheryl finished hers off:

Free Form!

So I think I hit a sketch wall. My last two attempts at layouts from sketches were less than stellar. I just wasn’t happy with the pages. I finished one yesterday, not because I wanted to or because I had an idea, but because I just had to get it off my desk and out […]

Sketchabilities-111-March-30th-Shar

This was a fun one to put together; I love how Sketchabilities sketches always stretch my creativity. The sketches are awesome but the submissions are BREATHTAKING and every one I try, I take it further and further into layering multi-media.   This layout started with a plain 12×12 paper – FabScraps (awwweeesssoommmeee company) Splashes 2.
