O HAI! Guess who's a new part of a great challenge blog? Yup - I've joined the team over at "Challenge YOUrself", a challenge blog devoted to getting YOU on your pages. This month's challenge is to create a layout about YOU AND THE MALE(S) in your life. This could be your father, grandfather, husband, son, a furry family pet. I chose my Prince.
When you're done here, please hop on over and see what the rest of the team has created!
I love to cluster embellishments. Chipboard shapes can be a great 'ground' for a cluster, helping to keep embellishments from looking like they are just 'floating' on the page:
I revisited an old favorite technique of tucking flowers under the edge of papers:
Customizing chipboard can be a lot of fun. These were embossed using acrylic paint, and metallic embossing powder. I used an uneven coverage to get an aged look
Lace was tucked in on the page, in a few places, too:
Thanks for visiting! And don't forget to check out "Scrap YOUrself" - we'd love to see your take on the challenge!
