Starting this month, I've decided to run a challenge here as well. I figure I can use all the inspiration I can get.
It is a recipe challenge, but this one has a bit of a twist. In addition to page elements, this recipe includes techniques for you to use. You might call this a recipe with room for improvisation. You don’t have to use all of elements or techniques and you can add whatever other elements or techniques make the page work for you.
The page elements – use at least three of the following:
- laser cut or die cut paper
- flower embellishments
- plaid pattern paper
The techniques – use at least two of the following:
- write by hand
And here is my interpretation of the challenge based roughly on a sketch by Allison Davis.
Page elements from the recipe: The die cut paper, felt daisies and blue buttons were all in my "new products" pile. The plaid paper is an oldie made new.
Techniques from the recipe:
stamped journal spot (cute, huh? I received it in a swap!)
handwritten journaling - to be honest I usually hand write my journaling. It is easier and quicker for me.
Want to play along? Post your layout (or a link) in the comments here by August 15. If at least 5 people play along, I'll draw a random winner for a small prize after that date.
I can't wait to see what you create!
