I stopped by Helen Tilbury's blog and noticed that Helen was hosting a Challenge for this website http://scrapbookchallenges.ning.com/. There was at least 19 items that you had to collect and use on your page, quite challenging but fun also.
This was the requirements of the Challenge including what I have used.
) Seeing as it's Easter & all, you need to create a layout documenting YOUR FAITH, YOUR BELIEFS or just a PHILOSOPHY THAT YOU LIVE BY... "I live by being kind to people and expect this in return.
2) Use craft paper as your backing base - I used this from paper packagine and cut half circles to make it a bit more decorative.
3) Use flowers on your layout
4) Use eyelets on your layouts
5) Use PLAIN BRADS - colored pink tone
6) Photo/s must be taken OUTDOORS
7) Your patterened paper can only be strips - I used off cuts but not in all small sizes.
9) Use a decorative border punch -
10) Use an old book page - I used the children running to symbolise Mothers Day
11) IF you want (this is the only optional part of this challenge :)) you can use THREE NEW EMBELLISHMENTS just to bring your layout up to date! I have used 1 BG Chipboard bird and two Fancy pants rubons.
12) Use PAINT on your layout - I used pink paint over the back ground.
13) STAMP on your page using something from AROUND THE HOUSE - I useed a salad bowl I recently was given at a take away shop. I used both the top and the bottom with the paint getting two diffent size circles.
14) Use ANY TYPE OF FABRIC, BANDAGING OR GAUZE on your layout - Pink Muslin
15) Use a TAG bought or hand-made - mine is from domr Pj's I purchased
16) Use something weird you wouldn't normally put on a layout ( I used a soda can that I recycled by using die cutting them and embossing them into banners) scrapbooking)
17) Use staples or paperclips - one or more
18) Use TWINE or string/embroidery floss...
19) TEAR some paper on your layout
OMG that was long winded, I think this took longer than the challenge typing it all in. Thanks for looking and I hope everyone had a great weekend.
