Cousins: From Desk to Done in Just 5 Minutes, #38

From Desk to Done #38, Cousins!  Pictures of me a some of my cousins during our 1st ever cousins get-together.  Sad to say, it probably will not happen again.  We are not close knit and it doesn’t appear to be something anyone is willing to work towards.
Here’s how it works.  Every Friday, I share a completed layout, along with the supplies I used and an inspiration piece.  You create based on what I’ve shared.  It’s easy and you can do it in 5 minutes or less per day or do it all in one day!  One thing is for sure, you’ll be getting your pages from your desk to done in no time! Here are your 5 minute daily prompts for those of you who only have a few minutes a day:
  • Day 1: Grab your photos.
  • Day 2: Gather coordinating patterned papers and cardstock.  Try to choose colors that match the colors in your photo. Of course you can just grab your mixed media paper, if that is your thang!
  • Day 3: Pick out  matching embellies and/or grab matching paints and mists if you are into mixed media.
  • Day 4: Cut pieces according to the sketch.
  • Day 5. Make your page.  This can really go quickly if you just follow the process, even when using paints and/or mists.

See my sample below:

Another memory saved!  Yay! Inspired by the sketch.  Here are a few steps I took.

  • I tilted the sketch, slightly.
  • I use a paper towel tube to create the circles, I then dragged through the paint and rubbed the leftover paint around the page.
  • I matted my photo to help it stand out.
  • Added a little handwritten journaling to finish it off.

I love the ease of creating with just a little paint.  Proof that it doesn’t take much time or a ton of supplies to create a great page and save your memories, again!    See ya back here next Friday for From Desk to Done, No. 39!  If this is your first time here, here is how you can continue the fun:

  • sign up here for updates so you never miss a challenge!
  • Visit the blog each Friday for the 5 minute daily prompts and the completed project.
  • Join our From Desk to Done Group on Facebook.  It’s more fun to create with friends, to share, inspire and encourage others and of course, to see their creations too!
