When you shop for scrapbooking supplies, do you tend to go for the paper first or the embellishments? As much as I love embellishments, I’m definitely a paper girl. And every once in a while that means I end up with paper from a collection and none of the embellishments, which requires a slightly different tactic. Something brave like… chopping up the paper.
This layout is embellished almost entirely from one sheet of paper – this sheet from Pink Paislee’s Soiree collection – cut into plenty of smaller pieces, including some added with pop dots for dimension in the layers. Aside from the metal flag, everything at the left was a case of cutting different elements from a single sheet of paper and layering them within a certain space on the layout. If layering is a little new to your style and many of your pages are a bit more linear, devoting a certain space on the page (especially in a rectangle) can allow you to try a new technique without completely changing the look of your album’s overall flow.
Here’s your challenge: Create a project (layout, card, etc) that is embellished with paper rather than embellishments. Take a piece of paper (or two) and chop it up until you have enough to dress up your page!
One entry will be selected to win a prize pack of Mistables from Pink Paislee. Entries close at midnight next Sunday (21st August 2011).
