Archi-Scraps DT reveal - Swimming Race

Hi everyone,

I have made my Design Team layout for my new position at Archi-scraps for their February challenge. Click here to view the post where there should be a Mr Linky to add your page to. I have copied the challenge below. It is so worth viewing the link to see this fountain in action.  There are two video clips to watch.

Czech artist David Černý's North Carolina piece 'Metalmorphosis.' 

Maybe it is because it is a giant, mirrored head which rotates, spits water, deconstructs and reconstructs before our eyes. Or perhaps it is the fact that the whole thing is filmed on webcam so you can keep tabs on it at all times. But it's most likely because 'Metalmorphosis' makes our world look the way we secretly hoped it would when we saw 'Terminator' for the first time. 

The mammoth undertaking weighs 14 tons, and the "seven-metre tall structure with horizontally-moving stainless-steel plates... form, and re-form, a giant metal head." Since 2007, it has been on display at the Whitehall Technology Park in Charlotte, North's a link to a video where you can watch it move.

Present a layout (or card) using a headshot (close up) of a person and use bling.

I chose a water themed photo for my layout. It is of Mark and his friend Nathan who both competed in a breaststroke race for their school. I wanted to use some similar colours but also add in the red of the lane divider in the photo. You have to use a close up shot of a person (I have one and a half) and some bling. I've got some ice blue rhinestones in a swirl to satisfy that criteria. Below is a list of elements that I used to create this page.

Products used:

Creative Memories Princess Tales Additions paper for the background (talk about using a paper for a completely different purpose)
Webster's Pages Palm Beach Trim; Petite Papers Triple Pack and Palm Beach journal Card
Foam dots
Cre8iv red ink
Creative Memories red pen
Kaisercraft ice blue rhinestones
Creative Memories Mediterranean Market ABCs

I hope that you choose to give this new challenge blog a go. There is a lot of scope and the inspiration photo is a real beaut.
