Vivian here with today's Monday challenge. Some of my favorite October Afternoon products are the Miscellany packs. I am always drawn to the fun vintage images and the mix of die cuts and flash cards. However, there are other products in the Miscellany sets that I tend to neglect. Enter today's challenge: use the chipboard, buttons, and word strips found in the Miscellany sets.
Here's how Lexi used each of the three items for today's challenge:
1. Lexi covered the chipboard kite with patterned paper stitched together.
2. She used the button to anchor her greeting element.
3. She cut apart the word strip, using pieces from it as embellishments.
In addition to the challenge elements, I love the background Lexi created by punching strips of the Blue Sky patterned paper. Here's a closer look at it all:
My layout also features the Woodland Park line:
1. I used the chipboard in two ways. First, I used the chipboard flower - in conjunction with a 2.25" square stencil cut from scrap cardstock - to create my own "patterned paper" using Sprinklers (from the Woodland Park, Cakewalk, and 9 to 5 lines). Second, I sprayed a piece of white cardstock and covered the chipoard flower with that once it was dry.
2. The buttons are used as the center of three of the flowers.
3. Like Lexi, I cut up the longer word strip into smaller pieces and used them as embellishments.
An added detail on my layout is the use of a Here & Now Chapter page for my journaling. I cut the butterfly's top left wing and tucked my photo strip behind it. Here's a closer look at it all:
We'd love to see your work if you participate in today's challenge! If you create something with the Miscellany chipboard, buttons, and word strips, please be sure to post it to our October Afternoon Flickr gallery for us to see!
