Welcome to our November Challenges!
This month we are taking some time to be inspired by other scrapbooks we love and admire, by scrap-lifting a page and then adding a element of our own.
The definition of scrap lifting? In short means to get inspired by other completed scrapbook pages.
It basically means copying others’ completed layouts in whole or in part. and the one rule is you MUST always credit the person you have ‘lifted’ from :)So have fun with these challenges and don’t forget to name who you have ‘lifted’ from anywhere you share your work.
Good morning, Julie here with my November challenge
The theme for the month is to scrap lift your favourite scrapbooking artist.
I have chosen Missy Whidden.
My additional challenge is to add stitching to your layout.
This is the layout I am scrap lifting
and this is my layout
I applied a coat of clear Gesso
to the entire sheet and set it aside to dry
While this was drying I cut eight 2″ squares from
Once the Gesso
was dry I used the packaging technique with Dylusions Spray Inks in Peony Blush and Vibrant Turquoise and lots of water to add the colour.
I also added some splatters using Glimmermist in Black Magic.
The photo is backed with a piece of tissue and then attached to a piece of craft foam.
I inked around the edges of the patterned paper squares and attached them to the layout with double sided tape on the left hand edge of each square.
Six of them were attached about 3/4″ from the left hand edge of the layout, one above where the photo is to be attached and one below the photo.
I used black thread in my sewing machine to stitch down the left hand edge of the squares and randomly on the layout.
Next the photo was attached.
I fussy cut a few embellishments from Layer Cuts
, one of which is a tag.
I added an eyelet using my Crop a Dial and threaded some red cord through the eyelet.
I used my Versafine Onyx Black ink and a stamp (not sure what brand or name of the stamp but I think it is Paper Artsy) to stamp randomly on to the layout
The title, which is added to the tag, is created using black alpha stickers.
To complete the layout I used a ruler and a fine black pen to draw a double border around the page
and underlined my title.
Here is my process video
Can’t wait to see who your favourite scrapbookers are, I might find a new favourite.
Hi Mystical Scrappers
Inspiring you with a scraplift …
I just adore the layouts that Debra Beer creates. She has a wonderful way of layering and creating backgrounds. Thanks Deb for being the inspiration for this layout.
I wanted to include texture in my background so I’ve used the triangle stencil
and gold paste
. I’ve embellished lightly and doodled around the border.
Scraplifting can be as simple as focusing on a particular technique all the way through to mimicking the design and layout … as long as you give credit to the original creator.
Thanks for visiting.
We can’t wait to see your scraplifts.
