scrap africa challenge a double page layout featuring Prima Lyric.3:04:00 AM
we have a new challenge over at scrap Africa - this month's challenge is hosted by the talented and lovely Rene. we had to use black and white photos, triangles and confetti.i love challenges that tell you exactly what to do - takes the thinking out of things really. so for my layout i used the new Prima Lyric Collection *love*. i used a single sheet of paper, 2 strips of scrap paper and some washi tape - for a really economical layout. for added interest i did a simple resist embossing technique on the patterned paper (also from the single sheet) - this changed the look totally making it really unique.
i combined some delicate paper butterflies with charms and wood embellishments - simply love how the textures compliment the beautiful paper
combining the Lyric collection paper with Life time embellishments - perfect union
i mimicked the pencil lines on the original sheet of paper by using a graphite pencil to scribble on my layout - some childhood fun with adult permission. instead of using the traditional round confetti for the challenge i included square confetti punched from the scraps of my single sheet of paper - really stretching the frugal scrapping thing.
head on over to scrap Africa to see what the rest of the design team came up with - love their interpretations of this stunning challenge. remember to play along and you could win some awesome goodies. have a creative week!
