    June Week 4

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Welcome to my solo challenge which has been inspired by a photograph I took of my Dad playing around with some film props when we visited the Hollywood Studios theme park, Walt Disney World Florida, in 1989!
    For 10 points I would like you to scrap a photo of a member of your family doing something out of the ordinary/silly/unusual - outside in the fresh air.
    I often like to add a doodled border around my LO’s so for another10 points please frame your page somehow. It could be stitched, doodled like mine, edged with strips of patterned paper - anything you like.
    Finally, I’m a big fan of embellishment clusters on a page so for 5 points please include one or more of these and for the remaining 5 points include a tag to either journal the story on or as an embellishment.
    Recap:
    Photo of family member out of doors – 10 points
    Border – 10 points
    Embellie cluster - 5 points
    Tag – 5 points

    1) Use plain cardstock for your background BUT do something to the edges .. distress, shape, ink, tear, anything you fancy or even a combination of them.
    2) Use only 1 photo OR several that are in sequence.
    3) Pick just one category of embellishments from the following ..... brads, flourishes, ribbon, ric-rac , flowers/ leaves from patterned paper .... then use them however you like but no others.

    Here they are again ..
    1) change the edge of plain cardstock.
    2) 1 photo or more in sequence
    3) just one category of embellishment from the list.

    August Week 3

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Welcome to our challenge
    Several members of our team have been doing home improvements of one kind or another so we thought a theme of 'Before and After' would be appropriate.
    The subject calls for a double page LO, and as a technique we thought distressing would be fun.

    So we would like you to...
    Create a double LO - 10 points
    Use the theme of 'Before and After' - 10 points
    Include some kind of distressing - 10 points

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    With such a variety of weather each day at the moment I'd like to see weather influencing your layout (think rainbow colours, droplet shapes, sunny yellows etc)
    I'd also like to see the use of stamps & paints (not necessarily together).

    In summary ...
    Weather influence (10pts)
    Stamps (10pts)
    Paint (10pts)

    September Week 1

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I have been watching YouTube videos for some time now and finally got the courage up to try the packaging technique on a layout – I loved it so much I will definitely be doing more of them, and I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to try it! So, with this in mind I would like to encourage you to have a go, if you’re not sure what it is have a look at Missy Whidden’s process videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je10fgs9jrA (Shimmerz Shortz #13 Using the Packaging Technique) NB: You don’t have to have the same kind of spray Missy uses, my LO was done using cheap watercolour paints
    However, If you are still not brave enough for that particular technique, or you do this all the time anyway, try one that is new to YOU or re-visit an old one you haven’t used in a while.
    I am also guilty of hoarding embellishments for that ‘special’ layout and have recently had a clear out of stash that was so loved once upon a time that it never got onto a page and then somehow fell out of favour  So, look on your craft desk or in your stash and use that special embellishment.
    I love sewing on my Layouts, I feel it it adds texture and finishes a layout off for me, so you guessed it, a bit of sewing on your layout please, preferably real but faux stitching is perfectly fine
    Finally, just because I love it so much, use a little bit of bling or enamel dots on your layout please.

    Here's my sample:


    In summary:
    A new technique - 10pts
    A ‘kept’ embellishment – 10 pts
    Sewing – 5 pts
    Bling/enamel dots – 5pts

    Attachment 195678

    On this day in 1965, The Beatles were at number one with 'Help!' so we'd like you to use a Beatles' song or album title as your page title. 10 points

    The Beatles were known as the 'Fab Four' - please use four of the same element on your page, eg papers, photos, embellishments, etc. 10 points

    'Sgt Pepper' is possibly the most famous of The Beatles' album covers; take inspiration from the cover in any way you choose and/or use the sketch. 10 points

    Attachment 195679

    We hope you'll have your feet tapping and your fingers scrapping
