Ta Daaaaah! My first DT submission at From Screen 2 Scrap

At last my first layout for my new DT position at From Screen 2 Scrap can be uploaded after weeks of computer problems!
The concept of the challenge blog is that each month we use a poster from a movie as inspiration for a scrapbook page and Shazza will also give us added extras to follow each month!
The poster for this months challenge is from a David Lynch film.
The added extras were Torn paper, use a zig zag somewhere on your page and use a single photo.
For my page I used the heart from the poster as my main inspiration. As my computer was down I was limited to the photos in my camera and I chose one of me feeding an elephant at the Zoo. It was amazing to get so close to such an awesome animal. I thought the poster was quite dark so I used dark colours and used the red to brighten things up a bit! I distressed the edge of the black card with blue acrylic paint and I used Die Cuts with a View Chip Chatter Glitzy chipboard letters. You can't see it on the photo but they are glittered! A few red heart buttons and red ribbon to add a bit of colour and chip board brackets from a QVC kit.

Torn paper - I tore the heart shape out of patterned paper

zig zag - Ric-rac ribbon frame around photo

Single photo - yep!

This was a really fun challenge and there are prizes too! If you fancy having a go please come on over to From screen to scrap and if you decide to enter please mention my name in your email! Tell Shazza that Ali sent you and I might get a prize too! Thanks.

Happy Scrapping!

My rainbow

Your rainbow is strongly shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
