GPP: Crusade #41 Gridlock

The GPP Challenge this week is Gridlock. This will be my first entry in their challenges. I have visited Michelle Ward's blog several times and tried some of the challenges, but never managed to post my work. This week's challenge really appealed to me .

I had created a number of painted papers using junk mail and acrylic paints for the Artistic Mother group a few weeks ago. I wasn't as happy with the results, but with the instructions to use papers on hand I thought I would use them up.

I had plans to add hearts but originally I was going to use ones from wrapping paper for contrast. I did not like the effect though, so I used another painted paper instead.

There are a number of directions I could go to add to the grid:
- pictures of what I love
-people I love
-strong words
-favourite quotes

For now, I will leave it as is. I enjoyed creating this grid - I can see it would change with whatever material you use. Can't wait to try another one!

Be sure to check out the other participants here.

Hi Beverly. This challenge has been my first one too. Don't you love it when you can create something out of nothing, like you have with simple "junk" mail? Thanks for sharing.

Love the hearts, and that you were able to use something you had already created. It's great to have a stash of papers ready made huh?
