I only recently stumbled upon the My Scraps and More blog and saw that they have challenges twice a month where a designer posts a layout sketch and everyone can create a layout based on it and link it up to their blog. Sounds like a whole lot of fun, I thought! Best of all, the My Scraps and More team will select 3 designs each month as their favourites and they also have a random winner that wins a gorgeous prize including paper, thickers and more! How wonderful that would be!
Of course I had no idea how to link up anything ha! I only figured out today that the reason I am so confused as to what to do is that the mobile version of the blog doesn't seem to have the Link Up button/information! Now that I am on my laptop, I will try to link up this blogpost. Wish me luck!
About the sketch...It's so cool! It's in fact right up my valley! I got totally inspired when I saw it! It instantly reminded me of the Heart Burst cut file I bought from The Cut Shoppe. And like I said in my previous post, I just LOVE cut files...So this really was a no brainer!
I've cut out the shape from white textured cardstock and in fact for this layout I've used the negative. I've placed a gorgeous patterned paper behind it and added all sorts of embellishments, frames, flair buttons, phrase stickers etc. I've stitched on some wood veneer words, and also handstitched along the rays with different color embossing floss.
So without further ado, here is my take on the sketch! I really like how it turned out, and I hardly ever say this about anything I make...If you know me, you know I am never satisfied with anything I make! :)
