The lovely Shimelle (www.shimelle.com) has been posting challenges all day for National Scrapbooking Day. You can join in with them until 15th May, so go take a peek and see if you want to participate!
This layout is for the challenge to 'use a border between two photos' (you can go straight to that challenge here). I'm hoping I won't be disqualified for also adding a button border beneath the left photo - the main border is still between the two pics! (click photo to make it larger):
I was quite pleased how quickly this page came together, layering the border between the pics meant the page had instant focus and I just had to build around it. I had to squeeze my title on because the letters I wanted to use for the word sweetcorn were quite wide, but now I really like how it looks with the letters overlapping!
I wanted something in the top right corner of the LO, but I didn't have any ready made embellies that I liked. So I hand drew a cloud onto yellow dotty paper, and then drew a little hot air balloon onto white card and coloured it in. I stuck the balloon onto the page with 3D dots to add a bit of dimension, and then managed to find a little cloud button that I could tuck underneath it:
I might have to join in another challenge or two while the scrapping frenzy is still with me! x
