You can learn more about the actual challenge by visiting Kathy’s or Rachel’s blogs. I LOVE these layouts, I saw something similar on Pinterest and have wanted to try it! Thanks for the inspiration ladies. Both of your versions are fantastic!!
I actually did a layout too…I told you I was going to try to do more layouts. I really like how it turned out.
I used Echo Park Country Drive for my base and Echo Park Happy Days for all of the circles and photo mat. The journaling banners are Echo Park Springtime. I got all the paper from Crop Chocolate, my favorite place to shop for scrappy sweetness. I also used Distress Ink-Broken China, Black Soot and Worn Lipstick Lush rhinestones (from CC) and MM Paper Reverie pearl gems (from CC). Some of the tiny circles are stamped with Distress Ink and a pencil eraser. I also used Distress Stickles-Broken China. One of my new favorite techniques is masking, which I did all around the layout. I adhered everything to the page with the Xyron Mega Runner, one of my latest purchases from Crop Chocolate.
I still have to do some journaling but I am linking up to the challenge so wish me luck! Oh, and if you feel inspired, PLEASE link up a project of y our own. I hope you do!!
