Scrappin the Art again

After sitting out a couple of challenges on Scrap the Art, I'm back using them for inspiration.  This time the painting is Senecio by Paul Klee

I went for the cubism style and the colors plus the large circle from the head.  You can't see it in the photos but I ran the texture wheel over each of the "cubes" to mimic the texture in the painting.  Could have distressed it a bit more now that I see the photo. 

Kid still at home was really tired of me snapping photos of her new hair-do to send to college girl.  I admit I went a bit overboard - if I scrapped them all I would be doing at least two 2 page layouts. And some of them are alot more.....uhm.... VISUAL about how I was pushing her too far because of course, it is so much fun getting on your teens nerves that I just had to keep going.  Naughty, evil mommy.

Thanks Scrap the Art ladies! I always have fun when I give your challenges a whirl.  I would never have picked up the pink color to go with these photos but I really like it. 

Challenges = Stretching out of the comfort zone = Good for me to try!
