For those of you familiar with Shimelle’s starting point challenges, I have a new recipe challenge at Soul Scrappers for you to create your own starting point. For this recipe you will need:
1 sheet of 12 X 12 kraft cardstock (you can substitute any neutral background if you don’t have kraft)
3 sheets of patterned paper cut into the following dimensions (all in inches):
- 12 X 4
- 7 X 5
- 5 3/4 X 6 1/4
Arrange the patterned paper anyway you like to create your own starting point and then add whatever you like. Here’s some ideas for starting points:
And this is my finished LO:
I added a couple more scraps to look as though there were extra layers, a journal tag, supplemented some pre-made dimension stickers with punched leaves and butterflies and fussy cut the bottom right embellishments from a scrap of pp. The papers and embellishments are all American Crafts Garden Cafe. The journal block is Crate Paper. Those sparkly thickers have lost their stick. I don’t know whether to go for extra strong glue or try to machine stitch across to hold them in place. I’m a bit nervous about the latter in case I mess up the LO and I think it would be hard to cover up if I did.
I hope you’ll join us at Soul Scrappers for this and loads more challenges. And don’t forget that you’ve just a few more days to join the final Scrapbookers Anonymous challenge to use a map and brads.
