If Not Now - When? A Snapshot Challenge

Snapshot 19 is all about Values.  You can read the post here.  I wasn't sure how to go about this page.  I knew I wanted to represent values I thought were necessary in a person and if we all had them what a wonderful world we'd live in.  I saw these theatre masks in a kit by Rebecca McMeen over at Scrapbookgraphics.  I still wasn't sure where I was going. 

I've been practicing with blending modes, trying to understand how they interact together.  I copied the hand with the masks a couple of times and then started trying out different blending modes.  When I used a multiply and color dodge combo I had an "AHA" moment and could see what I needed to do for the rest of the page.  And here it is...

Outside The Box Design Studio

There's a new art journal forum from Outside the Box Design Studio.  I discovered them during Digital Scrapbook Day this past weekend.  They ran a contest to win a seat in one of their upcoming art journal workshops.  The catch-you had to use their products, but they did give you a coupon; oh and you had to use the word "art" on your page.  So I purchased the starter kit using the coupon and made this page.  Received a message a short time ago that I was one of the winners...Woohoo.  This is the page I created.  Hope you get a chance to create :-)  Until next time...Happy Craftin'!
