Paper pieced fish card

Pinch and a punch for the first of the month and April Fool's.

It's April.  Time for a new challenge at Unstampabelles.

April - Krazy Kritters TWIST Bokeh Backgrounds

I had to google bokeh. Here is a link to save you time doing it.  Bokeh 

I had a beautiful piece of paper by Crafter's Choice from their Minerals paper pack to use as my bokeh background.  As it was a pretty blue colour I chose to make a paper pieced fish, made from punched hearts of different sizes, as my krazy kritter.  Cute, isn't it?

I thought I'd choose a circle shape for my card, just for a change. Could be a bowl with a fish swimming in it.

I cute some pieces of green cardstock in 3 different colours to make seagrass, added a sticker starfish, fancy cut a cloud and added a sticker sentiment.  Done.

Hope you join in.

A challenge about pets

Another month, another challenge at ARTastic where I am on the design team.

This month's criteria is pets and the painting has four cats. The orange striped cat's green eyes really stood out for me.  I decided I would base my layout around that. My cat, Georgia, has beautiful green eyes.  I love this photo that I took of her and chose to just use 2 colours, green and brown so that they complemented her.

An earthy double layout - Stone Cottage

Challenge at Archiscraps

Happy April Fool's Day first of all. Time for you to scroll through all the new challenges for April.

Are you looking for one that puts your thinking cap on?  Try this.

Isn't this an amazing image? Doesn't look real. Certainly looks Roman or similar.

This twist is  we are asking you to SQUEEZE SOMETHING IN BETWEEN.

What might that mean?  Up to you but do explain your thinking in your post.

Here is my example. I have squeezed my journalling on to a box in the middle of the photos/layout. But, this page is also part of a double page set. I have squeezed the title in between the two pages. So, I've doubled up on this challenge.

Here is the double.

What do you think?  I love the green and earthly tones.

Let's see what you do.

Have a great day.
