CC Challenges

I hope you had a great weekend with lots of time to relax and stay warm.
Just want to do a quick Monday share of challenges I've done over the weekend for the Top 50 Cyber Crop. All the challenges were based on movie posters with some extra criteria added. I've managed to complete 3 of the 4 challenges.
Here is my take on challenge 1. We had to use the 'Avatar' poster as inspiration here with added criteria of it being at least 50% blue, using a head shot photo and dots/spots. This is one of my most favourite photos of DS (taken by my dear friend Kathy) just before his Year 12 Ball.
My take on challenge 2. This layout had to be inspired by the 'Alice in Wonderland' movie poster and had to contain the following added criteria: layering, a handmade flower and a butterfly. I used quite an 'old' photo of DD here taken about 10 years ago when she was still attending kindy.
My take on challenge 3 had to be inspired by the 'UP' movie poster with added criteria being: used a minimalist/white space appoach, bright colours and a one word title. Had fun with the glimmer mist here (he-he).
This was DS after he injured himself practicing his parkour skills on some rocks while we were on holiday about a month ago. Boys!!
I hope you have a great week! Thanks for visiting and for all you wonderful comments.
Take care.

Hi Marelize!! What great LO's and such neat challenges to use movie posters as inspiration!! I LOVE the misting on the third LO!! So great for the subject matter. I've seen parkour on the news and it amazes me how these people are so agile! There must be lots of bumped up knees along the way! :(

Wow that OUCH layout is just amazing, the glimmermisting and the doodling, wow how awesome, can I lift it please, and the pic of your DS at ball is gorgeous, and wow look at how long your DD's hair was, is it still that long? Wow you were so good to finish 3 layouts over the weekend, I am super slack at the moment and haven't put the final touches on one layout this week. These are just gorgeous layouts dear friend. Love Melxx
