Vicki Boutin's Challenge

Post by Rachel Kent » Wed Apr 01, 2020 11:31 pm

Vicki Boutin posted a creative challenge today for the month of April! There are three prompts every day for a photo, art/technique, and color. It's a great way to use your stash and even to try something new. I'll be doing it! I posted today's on social media so far, but do you want me to post here too?

I’m planning to play along and it would great to do it here, especially because I bought all my Vicki Boutin goodies from ACOT.

First challenge for today - I need to wash and style my hair and put on makeup so I can take a selfie. I hope I remember how!  :-D

Here was yesterday's challenge! 
you - watercolor - yellow

I made this junk journal in our junk journal class here at ACOT the other month. I wasn't sure what to put in it though! So this challenge will be great to fill it up. When I saw watercolor and yellow I knew I had to make some springy flowers!

Yes, please post here!  I have lots of her stuff!  Sounds like a unique challenge!  And thanks for bringing it to our attention.  I would not have found it on social media, likely!

Here's mine! Day 1 You-Watercolour-Yellow. 💖

I used yellow watercolors to tint white texture paste, then misted with more yellow and dark pink. Vicki Boutin Stencil and Ephemera. I'm ever the optimist, always looking on the bright side of things. I'm doing 6x8 pages as I found an SEI Noteworthy Jr. Binder I will be putting them in.

Here's mine for Day 2 - My ScrapRoom Sliding Deck Door-Ink-Blue.  💖

I used Blue Smooch Liquid Ink to tiny white texture paste and then stenciled on. Vicki Boutin Ephemera. This is my view of the world with my pod swing. I love to take a break and just go enjoy the outdoors. I'm doing 6x8 pages as I found an SEI Noteworthy Binder I will be putting them in.

This Makes Me Happy

I'm really liking what everyone is doing here. Joining a bit late, but I'll give it a try. Think the 6x8 would be good for me too.

It's so fun seeing everyone's take on these prompts every day! I love it!


Here's mine for day 3: in your hand, mist, and red.

I had to get creative with the mist - I didn't have any red on hand. So I filled a little spray bottle with a red distress oxide reinker and a little water. Voila!

When I don't know what photos to work with, I tend to just pick one of my mom. Here's one of my absolute favorites of us!
