WED 11/25 GALLERY LIFT

Post by sthom97093 »

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Today is historically the busiest travel day of the year. As a result, I was inspired by this picture of the Peanuts gang reenacting the Beatles famous "Abbey Road" album cover. Specifically, I was inspired by the Peanut's character Linus, Charlie Brown's deep thinking, blanket loving, thumb sucking friend.

Image

In addition, today is Gallery Lift day. To pull my project together, I "lifted" a project by the incredibly talented Lolis who created this layout in June 2020. I am always inspired by her projects, namely her ability to use a variety of papers of all different patterns and colors to accent her pictures. This particular layout caught my eye, and I thought it would be perfect to recreate for my project.

Image

For my project, I featured a picture of my girls heading to a "gathering" of neighborhood kids at the bus stop on the first day of school. Our bus stop was the social hub of all kids of all age levels in my cul-de-sac for many years. My blanket loving/thumb sucking/Linus like youngest daughter would tag along with her big sister every morning sporting her tiny little backpack even though she was too young for school at the time. Everyone at the bus stop was always so happy to see my "Abbey" crossing the "Road" to hang with them while they waited for the bus. That is how my Abbey Road/Peanuts inspired layout was born. I used a variety of patterned papers from Bella Blvd (like Lolis did in her project) to pull my project together.

Image

YOUR CHALLENGE: Create a project that uses Lolis's page design featuring transportation. Transportation on a project or card could include a road (like I featured), a car, a trip on an airplane, a bicycle...Your transportation can be featured in a picture, the paper, an embellishment...The possibilities are endless!

A new Blue Plate Special challenge will be posted every Monday (sketch), Wednesday, and Friday. All participants have until the 3rd of the following month to complete and post their creations.

Prize will be a $20 Gift Certificate to their favorite online store (random drawing).....
