Hair Clip Week and TTT #11

Two things.

First of all, I want to show you guys my submission for Triplicate Trials Tuesday.  If you don't know what it is (like I didn't - I'm telling you, papercrafting is an underground world.), let me tell you.

It is a challenge hosted by a group of crafty people on a blog.  The entire blog is dedicated to this bi-weekly challenge. And when I say 'bi-weekly' - I mean once every two weeks (and not twice a week - don't you hate words with double meanings?).

Anyway, someone on the design team (dt - I had NO idea what dt meant for the longest...) picks out a theme and some colors.  The colors are the most important part - as they are not really subjective like a theme is.  And the contestants make some paper craft - like a card, a scrapbook page, an art journal page, a hang tag, whatever.  They post it on their blog with the blog title being the name of the contest (in this case TTT for Triplicate Trials Tuesday) and the iteration of that contest (in this case, this is the 11th contest for TTT).  Hence my blog title : TTT #11.

For this contest, the theme is Art Deco and the colors are hot pink, gold, and black.  Obviously, your skill level does not matter. They have people that are SUPER newbies like me  And they have people who are extra-advanced.   I like participating because it forces me to think creatively in another medium - which helps me to be more creative in my usual medium.  Not to mention it gives me motivation to finally scrapbook those pictures I have been setting aside for years!

The pictures above are of my Aunt Judy and me. When I was younger, I wanted to be JUST like her - Sexy, Sophisticated and BEAUTIFUL.  That picture captures her perfectly.

UPDATE!  I won!!!  I won, I won, I won!


Secondly,  next week, I am going to provide tutorials for hair clips each day.  Are you excited!  ;) If you just can't wait to get started, take a look at the cowrie shell hair clip tutorial I made a little while ago. 

See you tomorrow!

I love the way you have used the pictures of your aunt and then your self as a child but how you have also used the image of a larger bird (adult?) and a smaller bird (child?) very clever. Thanks for joining us again. Hope you will keep coming back.
