Onto Next Round!


Last week I was complaining about how hard this challenge for project scrapaway was - to use NO scrap products on your layout. So that the round is over and I have not been eliminated, I am sharing my page with you.


My style is usually clean and bright, so I took this as an opportunity to try a different style. It was definitely a challenge! I really wanted to try using some cardboard and a brown paper bag so I started there. We were instructed not to use easily identifiable photos so I decided to do a page that I have been thinking about for a while - my favorite things. At first I chose ' I {heart}' as the title because I was afraid of trying to make letters. However, I eventually decided that it was incomplete without the 'my favorite things' part.

Materials used:Brown Bazzill cardstock / Brown Paper Bag / Cardboard Scrap / Page from a Vintage Children's Book.

"I {heart}" title is made from a cereal box, with a page from a magazine glued on for color and texture.

"My Favorite Things" title is hand drawn on plastic from a box that a toy came in.

Flower: circle of red felt, circle of plastic, circle of paper bag, bottle cap, circle of book page, temporary tattoo on plastic. Flower leaves are temporary tattoos on plastic. Also, macrame twine.


Here are all of the entries: Link.
