This week the challenge was to make a layout and to:
Make your own patterned papers (no pre-printed papers allowed)
Make your own washi tape
Make your own paste
Make your own pinwheel
Here is what I came up with:
I personally like to start off with a sketch to help inspire me to get me started so I went to Let's Get Sketchy and grabbed their current sketch challenge sketch to use. I'm not sure if I qualify for their challenge since I am entering this in the SYTYCS challenge too. I will try and see what they say. lol
Here I have sprayed the lace with the Glimmer Mist.
Here is the paper after the lace was taken off.
(I used a Purple Pansy Glimmer Mist so that you can see the pattern better)
I started by laying a piece of lace over the backside of a piece of Luxury Centura Pearl 12" x 12" Printable Snow White Cardstock and then spraying it with Jingle Bells Glimmer Mist. After it dried I made some texture paste out of acrylic paint, baby powder and glue. I spread it on through a stencil in two corners and then set it aside to dry again. After that dried I sprayed the paste areas with Solar Gold Radiant Rain Shimmering mist.
I used a Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Flying Colors -swirl stamp and made two of my patterned papers. On one of them I stamped with VersaMark ink and then added clear embossing powder. And for the other one I used the same stamp but just stamped with Sunshine Yellow Ranger Adirondack Brights ink on the yellow paper for a tone on tone look that is subtle.
I grabbed my new 6x6 Embossalicious Embossing Folder - Lattice and embossed the teal paper strips. I just love the great texture it gave.
I made the washi tape by laying a piece of clear tape on top of some green tissue paper and then trimming it. Next I ran it thought my Xyron machine to make it sticky on the backside. Not the prettiest tape but good enough to fulfill the challenge requirements! lol
And finally we come to the pinwheel. I think pinwheels are super easy to make. Just cut out a square of paper, find the center and cut in most of the way from each corner. Then all you have to do is grab on corner and fold it into the center and continue doing this with the other 3 corners. I actually made a large pinwheel to start but it didn't work for me so I grabbed a couple of pieces of scrap paper and made these two little tiny pinwheels. I just glued down each folded corner piece and then added a brad to the center. And layered one of them on a flower. I like the two little ones much better than the one giant one!! LOL
I will let you know if I make it to round 15 of the So You Think You Can Scrap Challenge tomorrow.
Thanks for looking!!
Until next time...happy scrapping!
