National Day Challenge

The thing with using blog app is that sometimes the format doesn't come online as I want it to, or it just doesn't post when the connection doesn't allow.  It does contribute to me being a frustrated blogger, but not a frustrated scrapper. 

Still, having a smart phone is the best, because it allows me to go Pinterest and Facebook... both of which I spend a lot of time on when I am not able to do scrapping.

Here's something I absolutely need to do on desktop,  which is Print Screen.

This collage of 9 layouts is taken off my Facebook where I ran a challenge in the scrapbook group that I teach.  The theme was National Day and a rough sketch was given as a guide.  Mine was fairly close to the sketch so you can look at theirs and see how creatively they have utilised the sketch to come out with a number of configurations :)

For this layout I again utilised my typewriter, which I will introduce one day after I give it a through clean up. Instead of using it to type words or journalling like usual use, I used it to make the background you see on that little scallop ledging that the photos stand on.  It says "I LOVE SINGAPORE" in red, and I typed it on white textured cardstock for that slightly uneven ink feed.  I then punched it out with the MS ledger edge punch and finished the corner to give that rounded look.

I realised I like masking, and used my inks and mask to give some color and depth to my Pink Paislee Nantucket paper (for some reason I love the line sketched flowers design) and finished off the edges with thin pink Washi Tape.

Materials :Pink Paislee - background paper and mask,, Cardstock - Bazill, DCVW, Stamp - doily from MME, Trims and cardstock orchid from Papermarket, washi tape and dewdrops.
