So today, I am making amends by trying to combine all three challenges: LOAD day 2, Whimsical Musings #7 and Counterfeit Kit Challenge layout #6. And I think I might have managed it!
Pam had set me the prompt of using a previous Stacy J challenge from National Scrapbooking Day where she had used 10 words + 10 products + 10 techniques to make a layout about someone she loves. Pam's all about the odd numbers so she changed it to 9 of everything.
LOAD day 2's prompt was to chose stash that you have WAY too much of and find a way of using up a whole lot of it at once. Well, I think this applies to all of us really, doesn't it? I can't think of any crafter who doesn't have too much of one or many items (hangs head in shame yet again!).
And I wanted to make layout #6 using Departing Summer as that is my usual layout target each month. And I wanted to get it done before the new month's kit gets published... just a few days now!
So three big challenges and a goal to get them all done today...
|LOAD #2, Counterfeit Kit Challenge #6, Whimsical Musings #7|
- For the LOAD prompt, rather than picking out one item that I have too much of (a pretty tough decision anyway!), I just used a lot of product on one layout.
- Then I only used my Departing Summer kit for the Counterfeit challenge (just adding in the alphas).
- And finally, for my 9 products, I decided to have 9 different embellishments: buttons, twine, flower, pin, alpha, paper trim, recycled doily, cut-out paper element decoration and a kraft calender spot
- And my 9 techniques were: inking, layering, distressing, sanding, clustering, tying, strip journalling, fussy cutting and recycling.
Do you think that I have a challenge problem?
