Shimelle's third challenge involves scraplifting - oh yeah, this is something I can definitely do! Ok, actually the challenge reads - mix your style with a look you haven't tried. I decided to try to emulate one of Sian's layouts because they seem so different from mine. She often uses a neutral background, a small photo, banners, and lots of small (often handcut) embellishments in little clusters. She also often uses photos of things or places where I normally use photos of people. I chose this layout to lift for Shimelle's challenge. I maintained the 4x6 size of my photo, but otherwise followed her layout fairly closely.
I actually handcut my banner pieces and enjoyed adding all the little bits & pieces to the embellishment cluster. Journaling reads: No matter where we've been or how long we've been gone, when we see the . . . DALLAS skyline, we know we're almost home.
Are you participating in Shimelle's Scrapbooking Weekend? Which challenges have you tried so far?
