November challenges: cohoperation with Stuck?!Sketches

Hi lovely followers, here we are at November.

It's time for new challenge, plus we have a bit of a surprise this month: for this challenges we're partnering with the DT from Stuck?!Sketches. They are using our songs and we are using their amazing sketches.
Feel free to play along with one or both components of the challenge. If you use both components you can link up at both challenge sites!

So, it is now time to reveal
Click on the song for the link to the lyrics

Rock Song
Stairway to heaven - Led Zeppelin

Pop song
Octopus's Garden - The Beatles (chosen by our lovely followers)

AND this is the amazing sketch:

Let' s see how the first half of the Design Team used these wonderful songs AND the 1st November sketch by Stuck?!Sketches - we will have another DT reveal on 15th of the month, showing you the other amazing sketch to use, so please come back to even more inspiration!


I got inspired by the line "There are 2 paths you can go, but there is still time to change the road you're on. It reminds me of a lovely day in Belgium, when we were just driving without any GPS. A roadtrip, we discovered this beautiful town and made a picture of the nice view. I used the line in the journal. 


I chose the word "WONDER" from the lyrics as title for my layout about NY: I loved this city so much, and all the USA! It really was a great trip and I hope to come back soon. I decided to rotate the sketch.


 Stairway to Heaven inspired  me to think about what really makes me happy and that is my grandchildren.  This layout is of my granddaughter.  It is of her 4th grade school picture and also pictures taken during her 4th grade year from dance and gymnastics.



This song made me think of my animals....My Pet tarantulas molt like a snake every 6 months and its amazing to watch. There evolving everyday which i think is amazing. So i created  this awesome Mix-media layout using a picture of my Flame Knee Tarantula, whose name is FireBall!! He's Beautiful and recent molted again but he's got a hot temper and gotta keep an eye always on him. I put the title Tarantula in cargo box type lettering using texture paste and stencils. I continued to just layer on and on with prima paper, inks and sprays, die-cuts, tag's, fibers, Sa crafters elements, textures and stencils, and even gauze. I splattered white to finish it all off.

Marie - Christine

I was inspired by the song title. I chose a nautical theme with octopus and other aquatic animals, with a mix of vintage and modern style.


I was inspired by the lyric; you and me. It was hard to choose a lyric from the song, but I finally did, and this was an easy one. On the photo hubby and son during vacation in France in 2009 ! Seems like yesterday !

You can create any kind of paper project (altered canvas, card, layout, ATC, art journal… we also accept digital layout!)
You can use lyrics, title, theme or maybe the video to inspire you (here is a link to the challenge rules).

Remember that we're partnering with the DT from Stuck?!Sketches.
Feel free to play along with one or both components of the challenge. If you use both components you can link up at both challenge sites!
