GPP Street Team #41 Grid Lock

I usually try to do the GPP Street Team challenge earlier in the month but June seems to have slipped by. This month Michelle Ward has us working with grids. Just lay out a grid on your paper and fill it in with whatever.

















This one I filled in with papers and then did a double grid of sorts by adding small images in each spot. This is definitely a fun way to play in your journal and the results are prety pleasing, Hard to go wrong here.

















On my second page, I drew a grid on a painted page then outlined it in white pen and really liked it as is.











Then I turned it around, I like the brick wall look of it even better. I had a hard time covering it up but once I started playing with paper it was too much fun.














I added paper to all those spots and then a few things on top.  I see the value of doing this early now.  I want to try a few more but since the deadline is today I ran out of time.

  1. I ran out of time on this one, too. I played with it yesterday but didn't get anything I liked. I really like the last photo here. The little extra items adds just the right touch. And I like the one circle in the top photo.

  3. Kate - very nice!! Love the dark color under the first one - really makes it obvious your have layers happening. And I adore the second one - love how you showed the beginnings, then ended up covering it all up. I like the staggered blocks, the lovely colors, and all the texture. Don't let the deadline keep you from making more :) Thanks for sharing your work.

  4. These are wonderful! I especially like the 'brick wall' piece and the yummy blue-greens.

  10. I love the brick wall effect, and how turning it 90 degrees changes it so completely. Both pages turned out great. Isn't running out of time such a pain...
