The first of the "Movers" pages

We went and caught the Imagination Movers last month and while it's going to take a while to get all of the pages done, I've at least gotten started.
Bloody thing took about 3hrs to do but there's a lot of shrink film involved.  All of the gears were cut from shrink film on my Big Shot, colored (I tried Sharpies, craft ink and colored pencils- the blue were done with colored pencils (my Brilliant Blue Craft Spot is more of a Night of Navy!!) and the red is craft ink.  The title is done from rub ons on a transparency and I colored the white "MOVER!!" yellow with a Sharpie.  I wanted to put gears subtley on the blue paper so I cut some Cricut stamp "film" and mounting foam with the same die on my Big Shot and voila, now I have gear stamps.

Paper: SU: Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow
Ink: VersaMark, SU: Real Red craft ink
Other: Sharpies, Clear matte shrink film, Sizzix: Tim Holtz Gears die, October Afternoon: Rubon letters, Crayola: Colored pencils

Scrapbooker's Paradise #15: Use 3 OLD things: I won't admit to how long the shrink film has been in my stuff unused.  I'd say I found it at Michaels about 6 yrs ago and HAD to have it.  I opened the pkg. last night.  The Cricut stamp material was given to me with the Cricut as a birthday gift 2yrs ago.  I opened it last night for the first time.  The colored pencils I used have been used a bit over the years but I use watercolor pencils a LOT more and I got these pencils back in college if I recall... they may actually go back to high school.  Ouch.

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays: Use old supplies

DCWV/May Arts: I kinda blew it on this one... maybe.  Since my laptop is still a dead thing, I now check out challenges in the basement, copy the sketches and challenges I want to try out onto paper or just copy the sketches onto a single image and print them out on one page, then run up to the 2nd floor to do the work.  That means I sometimes miss details about WHOSE sketch I'm doing.  So I LOVED the sketch for these photos, got it done, and then realized I had no idea whose it was.  I'd given up on it when I was cleaning out my Reader docs tonight and stumbled on it.  Of course, it means that I have piece for DCWV/May Arts with none of their products on it.  However, I don't see that as a requirement and I really like the layout so I'll send it in anyway.  What's the worst that can happen- they say "thanks but no?"  I think I can survive that.
