I have to be honest, this is a stretch for many of the designers on the team BUT it is also a place where we can grow. Come grow with us!!!
Today is the first day of our Layout challenge. We'll be hosting a challenge every other week from here on in--both on our blogs and in the Scrap Chat forum.
Lesley Langdon set us up with a sketch challenge to get started:
Seriously...how fun is that? Here is my take on the sketch. A little different as I had to make some alterations to include some larger photos.
I have said this before but wanted to share it again. You can see from the white letters below that these ones are almost done!
Tip: Don't forget to use your rub ons~they have an expiry date
I was getting really playful with backgrounders and embellishments. I stamped the heart with polka dots again (refer to yesterday's post) but a little more subtly. I stamped a few different stamps along the side. I created the "flourish" by tracing one from the Maya Roads chipboard. I wanted it too coordinate with the patterned paper Ava Artisan Edge Pink by Making Memories so I edged it with pink and dotted it with brown marker then stamped on it using the polka background.
Here is a close up of some stamping fun (double and triple stamping adds dimension)
